    NUNES of california in the house of representatives Tuesday, March 5, 2013 Mr. NUNES. Mr. Speaker, I rise today alongside my colleague, Representative David Valadao, to pay tribute to the people of Nagorno Karabakh.



    Armenians have suffered some of the worst savagery of recent history, from the massacre of more than a million people in the Armenian Genocide, to the cruel repression of Soviet rule, to Azerbaijan's war against Nagorno Karabakh and the ongoing siege of that region. Through these trials and tribulations, the Armenian people have paid a steep price for their freedom. The hero's welcome Azerbaijan recently afforded to Ramil Safarov, an Azerbaijani military officer who murdered a sleeping Armenian officer during a NATO-sponsored program in Hungary, is a stark reminder of the unrelenting hostility Armenians face today.

    In this year, which marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of another anti-Armenian atrocity--the Sumgait pogroms--we pay homage to the Armenian people and particularly the people of Nagorno Karabakh, who bravely struggle to maintain their right to self-determination.
