As we have previously reported here in SOFREP, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been visiting various nations this year. She visited Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky in May and Taiwan last month. And now, Pelosi is on another trip visiting embattled Armenia. 

Pelosi arrived in Armenia as she led a congressional delegation to show support to Armenia after the fighting that started two weeks ago that resulted in 200 deaths (just last week). Pelosi met with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in Yerevan together with other local officials. The meeting reportedly represented “the strong and ongoing support of the United States” for Armenia as the country faces a conflict over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh territory

Pelosi joined local officials during a conference where she outrightly called out Azerbaijan in their attacks. She said this war was “initiated by the Azeries and there has to be recognition of that.” However, the Baku had a strong rebuttal to Pelosi’s statements saying these are biased and unfair accusations.
