Leaders of Azerbaijani Organisations in U.S. Meet Ambassador Morningstar

Bedir Mammadov, co-founder and director of the U.S. –Azeris Network (USAN), Gadir Shiraliyev, co-founder of the Washington Center for Azerbaijani Studies, and Susan Sadigova, acting executive director of the United States–Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USAAC) recently met with Richard Morningstar, U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan.


Occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan by Armenian armed forces, success in building bilateral ties and development of U.S.-Azerbaijani cultural and social relations were among the issues discussed.

During the meeting, leaders of the Azerbaijani organizations expressed hope for the United States to be proactive in helping resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, especially with the new administration of President Barack Obama, including newly appointed Secretary of State John Kerry taking office this month. New ways to involve the Azerbaijani-American community in development of bilateral relations were also touched upon. Heads of organizations expressed concerns over direct U.S. aid to occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and biased stance of senators Robert Menendez and Barbara Boxer on the issue. They also expressed discontent over Section 907 and hoped it would be repealed soon.

Mr. Morningstar thanked the organizations for their efforts and expressed hope to meet a wider audience of Azerbaijani-American community in the near future.
