Post ANCA Presses for Full Implementation of Royce-Engel Karabagh Peace Proposals

National Chairman Discusses Path Forward with House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce

IRVINE, Calif.The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) on May 27 urged Congressional leaders to redouble their efforts with the Obama Administration to ensure the timely implementation of the Royce-Engel peace proposals in the aftermath of Azerbaijans deadlyApril 2ndattack on the Nagorno-Karabagh Republic (Artsakh).

ANCA Chairman Raffi Hamparian and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) discuss the path toward implementation of the Royce-Engel Artsakh peace recommendations.

During a shared dialogue with House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who, along with Ranking Democrat Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), is the chief architect of the Karabagh peace recommendations, ANCA Chairman Raffi Hamparian discussed the Aliyev regimes devastating incursion against Artsakhthe worst since the ceasefire established some 22 years agoand the ensuing Azerbaijani war crimes, including the brutal murder and mutilation of an elderly Armenian couple and the beheading of three Armenian soldiers. The ANCA has been joined by senior Foreign Affairs Committee member Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) and Armed Services Committee member Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) in calling for a Leahy Law investigation, which would zero-out U.S. military assistance to Azerbaijani units found to have committed war crimes.

Hamparian stressed the urgency of taking concrete steps toward implementation of these cease-fire strengthening measures, citing the death of Nagorno-Karabagh Defense Forces Private Vahe Argam Yeghoyan just days earlier, as a result of Azerbaijani cross border shelling.

Armenian Americans across the U.S. appreciate Chairman Royces leadership in advancing the Royce-Engel proposalscommon sense measures to ensuring a path toward peace in the Caucasus, said ANCA Chairman Raffi Hamparian. The key, of course, is in their implementationand the sooner the better, if we are to avoid a repeat of the ravages of Azerbaijani aggression.

The Royce-Engel proposals, which have received the support of more than 90 U.S. Representatives through two Congressional letters sent to the Obama Administration in November 2015 and March 2016, include three common-sense measures to secure Artsakh peace:

An agreement from all sides not to deploy snipers, heavy arms, or new weaponry along the line of contact.

The placement of OSCE-monitored, advanced gunfire-locator systems and sound-ranging equipment to determine the source of attacks along the line of contact.

The deployment of additional OSCE observers along the line of contact to better monitor cease-fire violations.

Armenia and Artsakh have long agreed to all three measures; Azerbaijan opposes their implementation.

Key points of the Royce-Engel proposals were incorporated in the recent agreement by Armenian President Serge Sarkisian and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyevbrokered by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Russia Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and France State Secretary for European Affairs Harlem Desirwhich called for the implementation of OSCE investigative measures and expanded authority of the Office of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson, as part of a broader commitment to a regional ceasefire.
