YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 15, ARMENPRESS. Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi will travel to Armenia this weekend in a show of support for the country amid the Azerbaijani attack , two people familiar with the visit told Politico.
Pelosi will make the journey accompanied by Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) after a stop in Berlin for the G-7 Speakers’ Summit. She’s expected to meet with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in Yerevan, the capital, as well as other government officials.
When asked by Politico about the upcoming trip, Drew Hammill, the speaker’s deputy chief of staff, said, “We don’t confirm or deny international travel in advance due to longstanding security protocols.” Speier’s office did not immediately return Politico’s requests for comment.
Asked to verify the report, the US embassy in Armenia told ARMENPRESS: “We don’t have any information to say at this moment.”
