CAPTION: Armenian Assembly summer interns met with Congressional Caucus on
Armenian Issues Co-Chair Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) on Capitol Hill July 8 to
discuss issues of concern to the Armenian Diaspora, as well as current
legislation to extend permanent normal trade relations (PNTR) to Armenia.
The legislation, introduced by Armenian Caucus Co-Chair Joe Knollenberg
(R-MI) and Congressman Pallone in the House of Representatives last year,
would remove a provision requiring Armenia to obtain presidential approval
for continued access to low tariffs. The meeting with Congressman Pallone,
a staunch supporter of Armenian-American issues, is part of the Assembly’s
Capitol Ideas program which gives interns the opportunity to meet with U.S.
Senators and Representatives.

The Armenian Assembly of America is the largest Washington-based nationwide
organization promoting public understanding and awareness of Armenian
issues. It is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt membership organization.
