Representative for Texas's 34th congressional district, Congressman Filemon Vela has called on the U.S. authorities “to show their solidarity with former Soviet states such as Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and Georgia, while encouraging these nations to continue to institute democratic reforms and modernize their economies”.

“Countries in the Caucasus region such as Azerbaijan and Georgia are located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe – a strategic location for U.S. foreign policy objectives..” said Vela during his speech at the Congress.

“With the volatility and strategic importance of this region, the U.S. must continue to work with its allies as Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Georgia to ensure their sovereignty is protected,” the U.S. congressman added.
