‘Agreement Is Possible’ U.S. Says Supports Continuation of Azerbaijan-Armenia Peace Talks
The State Department said on Monday that Azerbaijan and Armenia will continue to have the support and engagement of the United States in their effort to secure a peace agreement, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Turan.
“We continue to believe an agreement is possible and we look forward to further talks in the coming months,” Spokesperson Matthew Miller told a daily press briefing.
Late last month, Secretary of State Antony Blinken hosted Azerbaijani and Armenian Foreign Ministers Jeyhun Bayramov and Ararat Mirzoyan for bilateral peace talks in Arlington, at the National Foreign Affairs Training Center.
When asked on Monday “What should Azerbaijanis and Armenians be looking for in the days and months ahead to understand that the Arlington process was successful?” Miller responded: “I think another sign would be the continuation of talks, which we continue to support.”
According to officials, further progress has been made during last month’s Ministerial, but “hard work needs to be done to try to reach a final agreement,” as Secretary Blinken put it.
