James Warlick: Armenia’s membership in EEU will not affect Karabakh settlement

A resolution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict depends on the political will of the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan, and not on treaties or alliances, US co-chair of OSCE Minsk Group, James Warlick told Trend on Oct.23.

He was commenting on the possible impact of Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The co-chair said the government of Armenia has made its decision, which he respects.

“We hope with the recent contacts between the presidents they will commit themselves to a settlement,” Warlick said.

“Conditions along the line of contact and Armenian-Azerbaijani border have stabilized after the outbreak of violence this summer. But the situation remains tense,” he added.
