Defeat in the second Artsakh war jolted the Armenian psyche. The process of adjusting to new realities is taking place for engaged Armenians and organizations representing them in the Diaspora. In the below short interview Armenian Assembly’s co-chairman Anthony Barsamian comments on current affairs (US assistance to RoA, POWs, role of OSCE, refugees, protection of people of Karabagh, security, etc.) and highlights what the Assembly plans to do to assist the Republic of Armenia in its effort to rebuild the economy and lobby the US government for a peaceful solution. His message to stakeholders in RoA is to “Lower the temperature” and “work together”.
