The bipartisan Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues will mark the 21st anniversary of Artsakh independence at a special Capitol Hill reception to be held on Dec. 5, the Armenian Weekly reports.
The Congressional program will feature an address by Nagorno Karabakh Republic Foreign Minister Karen Mirzoyan and remarks by Members of the Caucus and the Republic of Armenia’s Ambassador to the U.S., Tatoul Markarian.

The Congressional Armenian Caucus will be joined at the celebration by members of the diplomatic and foreign policy community along with Armenian American leaders.
A special guest, the noted author of “Nowhere: A Story of Exile” and survivor of the 1990 Baku pogroms against Armenians, Anna Astvatsaturian Turcotte, will be on hand for the event, after a day of Capitol Hill meetings.
