/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA)
formalized its longstanding support for Barack Obama with an official
endorsement of the Obama-Biden campaign for the Presidency of the
United States.

"The Armenian National Committee of America is proud today to formally
announce our support for Barack Obama – whom we endorsed this January
in the Democratic Primary and have energetically backed with sustained,
grassroots voter mobilization for the past nine months," said ANCA
Chairman Ken Hachikian. "Based on Senator Obama’s strong record in
office, his bold statements as a candidate, and our judgment as to
the types of policies he will pursue as President, we believe that
an Obama-Biden Administration would be far better positioned than
a McCain-Palin one to reflect the views and values of the Armenian
American community."

For over three decades, Vice-Presidential Nominee Senator Joe Biden
has been a voice of moral clarity on issues of concern to the Armenian
American community including:

* Support for U.S. recognition of the Armenian Genocide, dating back to
his work with Senator Bob Dole to pass the Armenian Genocide Resolution
(S.J.Res.212) in 1990, and to promote stronger U.S.-Armenia relations.

* Consistent support for Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act,
adopted in 1992, which restricted U.S. assistance to Azerbaijan due
to its ongoing blockades of Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh.

* Leadership in pressing the Administration to explain its firing
of U.S. Ambassador to Armenia, John Evans and ensuring that future
nominees as U.S. Ambassador to Armenia and Turkey do not deny the
Armenian Genocide.
