U.S. Offers Assistance With Border Delimitation And Demarcation Efforts Between Armenia and Azerbaijan
Washington on Tuesday reinstated its offer to assist with border delimitation and demarcation efforts between Armenia and Azerbaijan, TURAN's U.S. correspondent reports.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
"They discussed the positive momentum that we've seen in recent days and in recent weeks in the South Caucasus," State Department's spokesperson Ned Price said at the daily briefing in response to TURAN's question on the call, promising a more detailed readout later in the day.
The call came just two weeks after Blinken's talk with Azerbaijan's Ilham Aliyev.
In its readout, the State Department (DoS) mentioned Tuesday evening that Secretary Blinken "offered the United States’ assistance with border delimitation and demarcation efforts and encouraged progress to develop regional transportation and communication links."
Blinken also highlighted the importance of continued bilateral dialogue to solve challenges in the South Caucasus and reaffirmed U.S. support for EU-brokered conversations between President Aliyev and PM Pashinyan, Price said.
Secretary Blinken also reaffirmed U.S. readiness to help by "engaging bilaterally and with likeminded partners, including through our role as an OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair, to help Armenia and Azerbaijan find a long-term comprehensive peace," Price added.
According to the DoS readout, Blinken also underscored the importance of normalization in relations between Armenia and Turkey in ensuring peace, stability, and prosperity for the wider region.
