The United States reiterated that it does not consider the issue of the status of Nagorno Karabakh to be resolved.
U.S. Ambassador to Armenia Lynne Tracy was asked by reporters on the potential resumption of the Armenian-Azerbaijani negotiations under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group.
In response, she said that the United States, as a Minsk Group Co-Chair, is doing “everything to support bringing the parties together under the auspices of the Minsk Group, because we think that these very fundamental issues of peace and security require negotiations and diplomacy,” Armenpress reported on Saturday.
“Secretary Blinken has made our commitment to this process very clear on several occasions. It’s obviously a very tough environment. Thirty years of war and tensions are not going to be resolved overnight. But we understand that there are some fundamental issues that do have to be addressed, and one of them, as I have said before, is that we don’t consider the status of Nagorno Karabakh resolved. And we will continue to keep that on the agenda of the Minsk Group,” said Tracy, who spoke to reporters during a ceremony in Yerevan marking the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Last month, Tracy, who vacationed in Armenia’s Syunik Province, again said that the Nagorno Karabakh conflict has not been resolved because the status of Nagorno Karabakh has not been decided.
