1) cement their status as "victims," getting preferential treatment, sympathetic ear and monetary handouts,
2) paint Turkey and Azerbaijan as "aggressors," thus worsening these nations' image, memberships or prospects in NATO, EU, etc.,
3) lay the foundation for territorial and monetary demands,
4) cover-up the abysmal human rights record of Armenia, which occupied up to 20% of Azerbaijan making one in seven Azerbaijanis a refugee.
Thus, every year, US Turkic Network (USTN) do their part to fight back, by letting our members speak out to their elected leaders and local media. Our platform allows to amplify our voices and make them better heard, so the more of you and your family members send these action letter, the greater the effect.
