Congressman Schiff Awarded State Order for Strengthening Ties Between U.S. and Armenia
Today, on the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and the Republic of Armenia, Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) was among those awarded the State Order for his role in strengthening ties between the two countries.
“Working on behalf of my Armenian American constituents and deepening the partnership between our communities at home and abroad is one of my most important missions in Congress, and it is remarkable how far we have come over the past three decades,” said Schiff. “I am humbled by this tremendous honor, and I look forward to continuing the important work of strengthening diplomatic ties between our nations.”
Schiff, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other members of the House and Senate today also met with Alen Simonyan, President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia.
