State Debate: Armenia, neighbors ponder Kerry=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s nomination

December 24, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The nomination of John Kerry, chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, as the Secretary of State has stirred discussion in the South Caucasus. Azeri political analysts predict that the assumption of such a high post by the senator known for his pro-Armenian activities would increase “anti-Azeri” sentiments, while in Armenia hopes aren’t high for such developments.

On December 21, president Barrack Obama nominated Senator Kerry for the country’s top diplomatic post, stressing that the Vietnam war veteran and presidential candidate of 2004 is a “perfect choice to guide American diplomacy.”

The 69-year-old senator from the State of Massachusetts with a large Armenian community, back in the 90s co-authored the Article 907 restricting non-humanitarian US aid to Azerbaijan “for as long as it keeps Armenia in a blockade”.
