US Senate passes measure blocking US military aid to Azerbaijan

The US Senate has passed a measure blocking US military aid to Azerbaijan.

The bill prohibits the President from waiving Section 907 of the FREEDOM Support Act for the next two years.

U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) introduced the bipartisan bill on September 29, 2023 in response to the Azerbaijani government’s attacks on Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“The Azerbaijani government has made it clear – it can and will use its military resources to impose violent attacks against the people of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh,” said Senator Peters. “The United States cannot be complicit in Azerbaijani violence against the Armenian people. We must pass this legislation to block additional American aid to Azerbaijan until it puts an end to its aggression in the region.”
