US welcomes first meeting of Armenian, Azerbaijani border commissions – Blinken

The United States welcomes the first joint meeting of the Armenia-Azerbaijan bilateral Border Commissions, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a Twitter post.

“The U.S. supports the EU-brokered conversations between Azerbaijan and Armenia and encourages continued positive momentum and bilateral dialogue in support of regional peace,” Blinken added.

The commissions led by Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Mher Grigoryan and the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Azerbaijan Shahin Mustafayev held the first meeting on the state border between Armenia and Azerbaijan on Monday.

The sides reiterated their readiness to work on delimitation and other relevant issues, including border security issues within the commissions.

The second meeting could take place in Moscow next week.
