The Trump Administration – through the @USTreasury OFAC – should enforce crippling sanctions against Azerbaijani President Aliyev, Turkish President Erdogan, and their senior military leaders for wars crimes committed against civilians in both Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh.
Ilham Aliyev and Recep Erdogan – are demonstrably guilty of directing a premeditated surprise attack and sustained assault on civilians in Armenia and Artsakh.
This deliberate targeting of civilians constitutes a vicious and cold-blooded violation of international humanitarian law and basic human rights. Turkey has also recruited foreign jihadist terrorists to fight alongside Azerbaijan in this anti-Armenian campaign.
Should the U.S. Department of Treasury enact sanctions, all of Erdogan’s and Aliyev’s property and interests in the United States or in the possession or control of U.S. persons would be blocked or frozen and reported to OFAC.
U.S. regulations generally prohibit any dealings by U.S. persons with blocked or designated persons.
Non-U.S. persons that engage in certain transactions with the designated persons may themselves be exposed to this designation.
Furthermore, any foreign financial institution that knowingly conducts or facilitates a significant transaction for or on behalf of the persons designated today could be subject to U.S. legal action.
