California State Senate Resolution on Nagorno-Karabakh does not reflect U.S. policy, US Embassy in Azerbaijan said in a statement.
“Recent media reports have discussed a resolution by the California State Senate on the subject of Nagorno-Karabakh. U.S. Foreign Policy is determined by the federal government. States are free to express their opinions, but those opinions do not represent national foreign policy,” the Embassy said.
“The resolution passed by the California State Senate regarding Nagorno-Karabakh is an expression of opinion by a state legislative body and does not change U.S. foreign policy on the matter,” the statement reads.
