ARMENIA’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY TO BE MARKED ON CAPITOL HILL
Armenian Americans will join on Capitol Hill with the Congressional
Caucus on Armenian Issues on Tuesday, October 25th to celebrate the
20th anniversary of the Republic of Armenia’s rebirth as an independent
country, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).
The program will be held in the historic hearing room of the U.S.
House Foreign Affairs Committee, 2172 Rayburn House Office Building.
This room has been the setting for many watershed meetings on
Armenian issues, including the approval of a series of Armenian
Genocide Resolutions and, just this past July 20th, the adoption of
a Return of Churches amendment calling on Turkey to restore Christian
religious properties to their rightful owners.
The event is organized by the Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues,
in coordination with the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia and
Armenian American organizations.
