Armenian Assembly Executive Director Bryan Ardouny Responds to Biased Article

WASHINGTON,  D.C. – Last week, Armenian Assembly of America (Assembly) Executive  Director Bryan Ardouny responded to  a biased article posted  in The Hill earlier  this month. 

Ardouny wrote: “Christina Gathman’s ‘Armenia’s Russia  problem’ in The Hill’s Congress Blog published on Dec. 13, 2016 goes to some length to catalogue the  extent of Russian investments in Armenia and raises the question whether the  degree of economic cooperation between the two countries affects its foreign  relations. Without pointing out any valid evidence that this situation has in  any shape or form influenced Armenia’s relations with the United States, Gathman wants to draw conclusions by implication alone.”

“Rather than exacerbate and conflate the issues, the  focus should be on what we can do as Americans to help Armenia realize its  full potential, and like many other countries within the former Soviet Union,  free itself from the vestiges of the past,” he concluded.
