The USA supports the negotiation process of the Nagorno-Karabakh problem as the co-chair of the Minsk Group

"The United States continues to work for the establishment of a comprehensive and long-term peace between Armenia and Azerbaijan." Ned Price, the spokesman of the State Department, announced this in a press conference.

"Thus, we have expressed our deep concern regarding the recent battles registered in and around Nagorno-Karabakh, as a result of which human casualties and injuries were recorded. We called for immediate steps to ease tensions and avoid further escalations between the parties. We believe that the recent increase in tension has emphasized the need to settle all other issues related to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict or arising from it in a negotiated, comprehensive and stable manner," Price said. Price also added that the US remains committed to continuing work with the parties.

"We will continue to do this both bilaterally and with like-minded partners in the European Union, as well as as co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, to help countries find long-term comprehensive peace," Price said.

"We have always accepted that this will not be a linear process. "We believe that through continued dialogue and engagement, including at the highest levels, we will be able to do everything possible to help advance long-term comprehensive peace," concluded Price.
