Costa Supports Amendment to Fund Demining in Nagorno-Karabakh
(WASHINGTON) Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) supported an amendment to provide $1.4 million in funding for demining efforts in Nagorno-Karabakh:
“This funding is more critical now than ever before to ensure the safety of the Armenian people,” said Costa. “The recent violence along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border has been a terrible reminder of the danger Armenians are faced with every day. I’m proud to support this amendment and solidify U.S. global leadership in efforts to promote peace and stability in the region.”
The amendment, which Congressman Costa cosponsored, will be included in the final version of H.R.7608, the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act of 2021, which includes funding for international humanitarian efforts.
