Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 14 / Trend V.Zhavoronkova /
The U.S embassy in Azerbaijan has commented on the U.S aid to separatist regime in the Nagorno-Karabakh.
"The United States does not recognize the so-called Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh government. That has been our policy and it has not changed," U.S Embassy Spokesman Terri Davidson said replying to the question about the U.S aid to separatist regime in the Nagorno-Karabakh.
A joint conference between the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives adopted a bill on U.S. 2010 budget Dec. 8.
"In the case of funds designated for the Nagorno-Karabakh by the U.S. Congress, U.S. assistance is given to people, not the government. This is purely humanitarian assistance, for projects such as demining. These projects are carried out by NGOs," he added.
"The United States at the same time provides assistance to the IDP population in Azerbaijan. Again, we have supported large demining efforts in recent years, built new schools for IDP populations and attempted to improve living conditions in a range of projects," he added.
