Wyoming House votes down pro-Azerbaijan measure

By a vote of 35 to 25, the Wyoming House of Representatives recently voted down consideration of a pro-Azerbaijan resolution, with opponents citing Baku’s repression of free speech and religious intolerance as primary reasons to block the measure, the Armenian National Committee of America reports.

Wyoming joins Hawaii and South Dakota in voting down measures backed by Azerbaijani dictator Ilham Aliyev and U.S. supporters attempting to white-wash the country’s dismal human rights record. Similar measures currently under consideration in other states are facing tough opposition.
