Serj Tankian calls on US government to pressure Aliyev as humanitarian situation worsens in blockaded Artsakh


YEREVAN, JANUARY 5, ARTSAKHPRESS. System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian is calling on the US President and the US government to exert direct pressure on Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev amid worsening humanitarian situation in Artsakh resulting from Azerbaijan’s unlawful blockade of the Lachin Corridor.

Tankian made the comments in an interview with TYT.

In a Facebook post, the rockstar also thanked Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass and Los Angeles City Council President Paul Krekorian who officially asked US President Joe Biden to help the people of Artsakh.

Tankian called on his followers online to share the flag of Artsakh as a sign of support.

“As Azerbaijan’s genocidal blockade enters its 24th day, the Armenian Republic of Artsakh and its citizens are deprived of basic necessities and provisions.

Share this flag in support of Artsakh. Aliyev and the government of Azerbaijan do not want this flag and the people it represents to exist, so share it. Spread awareness, educate, organize, and mobilize for the sake of Artsakh.

Take action against the Aliyev’s most recent ethnic cleansing efforts. #stopaliyev,” Tankian said on social media.
