    US looks forward to Minsk Group's continuing work – State Department

    The Russian co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group has turned down an invitation by his U.S. counterpart to discuss Nagorno-Karabakh’s future, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs said on Tuesday.

    “The U.S. OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair spoke with her counterparts today to discuss the future of Nagorno-Karabakh. It's unfortunate the Russian Co-Chair did not accept the invitation. We look forward to the Minsk Group’s continuing work,” it tweeted.

    The move comes after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced on Friday that the Minsk Group “has wound down its activities” on the U.S. and France’s initiative.

    Three statements made by Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia currently serve as a basis for the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement, Lavrov said.
