Clinton comes to Yerevan

Secretary of State Clinton was in Armenia today. Understandably, the Armenian National Committee of America (which is historically connected with the ARF-D party) issued requests for Ms. Clinton to consider. Here is the cliff notes version:

#1 and #2: Armenian Genocide

#3, #6 and #10: Nagorno-Karabakh

#4: More aid

#5: Free Trade Agreement

#7: No weapons for Baku

#8: Investigate an Armenian cemetery in Nakhichevan desecrated by the Azeri military

#9: Aid and support for the Armenians in Georgia

The Genocide and Nagorno-Karabakh take up half of the recommendations. That’s a lot of political capital to spend on nearly intractable issues.
