Armenian Assembly Executive Director Bryan Ardouny Responds to Biased Article

 – Last week, Armenian Assembly of America (Assembly) Executive
 Director Bryan Ardouny responded to
 a biased article posted
 in The Hill earlier
 this month. 

Ardouny wrote: “Christina Gathman’s ‘Armenia’s Russia
 problem’ in The Hill’s Congress Blog published on Dec. 13, 2016 goes to some length to catalogue the
 extent of Russian investments in Armenia and raises the question whether the
 degree of economic cooperation between the two countries affects its foreign
 relations. Without pointing out any valid evidence that this situation has in
 any shape or form influenced Armenia’s relations with the United States, Gathman wants to draw conclusions by implication alone.”

“Rather than exacerbate and conflate the issues, the
 focus should be on what we can do as Americans to help Armenia realize its
 full potential, and like many other countries within the former Soviet Union,
 free itself from the vestiges of the past,” he concluded.

 here to read Assembly Executive Director Bryan Ardouny’s full response.

Established in 1972, the Armenian Assembly of America is the
 largest Washington-based nationwide organization promoting public understanding
 and awareness of Armenian issues. The Assembly is a non-partisan, 501©(3)
 tax-exempt membership organization.
