Maryland’s Armenia message highlights Nagorno Karabakh’s democratic aspirations

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley issued a proclamation on Armenia’s Independence Day that also noted Nagorno Karabakh as a “fledgling democracy”. Maryland has thus become the latest U.S. state to have publicly expressed support for Artsakh.

The document also stressed that “Armenia, Nagorno Karabakh and the United States share the same values and believe in the fundamental principles of freedom, democracy, self-determination and human rights.”

As proclamation states, people of the State of Maryland uphold and embrace those values and extend their support to “all those who chose to develop as free and democratic nations.”
