Washington hopes for a progress in the negotiations over Nagorno Karabakh. “It is important that neither Armenia nor Azerbaijan take actions that would escalate tensions on the line of contact. We obviously hope that now, after the elections in Armenia earlier this year and the elections recently in Azerbaijan, there will be an opening to make progress in the negotiations over Nagorno-Karabakh,” US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Richard Morningstar said in an interview with APA.
“The United States as a Minsk Group co-chair will work hard and make every effort to try and promote that progress. That is why US Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group) Ambassador Warlick was here earlier this week and why the Minsk Group co-chairs will be here in a couple of weeks,” he said.
“We certainly hope there will be a meeting between both presidents before the end of the year. As to the exact date, I think it would be best to ask the Presidents and not me. But we certainly hope that there will be a meeting,” the Ambassador said.
