THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
I am shocked and saddened by today's armed attacks in the Armenian parliament. I condemn this senseless act against individuals actively engaged in building democracy in their country. The victims and their families are in our thoughts and prayers.
The United States has built strong ties with Armenia, focused on helping the Armenian people build a prosperous, secure and democratic future. At this time of tragedy, we renew our support for the Armenian people and their leaders, as they continue to build on the principles that today's victims have so courageously embodied.
