Pro-Azerbaijani resolution failed in Mississippi
MS SR4 Resolution, calling on the President and the Congress of the United States to support the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, failed in the House of Representatives of Mississippi.
As the LegiScan.com sitereaports, the resolution was not put for a vote.
The resolution, authored by Senator John Horhn, reads that Azerbaijan is effective economic partner of the U.S., and the state of Mississippi in particular. The author considers it necessary to support the strategic partnership between the states, as well as to take up steps for reaching "a speedy and fair settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan." The text is available here.
The Mississippi is the fifth U.S. state where the pro-Azerbaijani resolution was failed. Thus, in March, the House of Representatives of the U.S. state of Tennessee rejected the anti-Armenian resolution HR0145 presented by pro-Azerbaijani forces. In February, the House of Representatives in South Dakota rejected the anti-Armenian resolution initiated by Azerbaijan. The House of Representatives of the U.S. state of Wyoming rejected in February HJ0002 resolution entitled "Support to Azerbaijan." In addition, on February 12 the legislature of the U.S. state of Hawaii discussed and rejected two anti-Armenian resolutions, funded by the Azerbaijani government.
