Armenia-Azerbaijan talks remain a priority for U.S. – State Department
Negotiations between Armenia and Azerbaijan continue to be a priority for the United States, U.S. State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller told a press briefing on Thursday, commenting on fresh talks between the Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders in Moscow.
“As you know, the Secretary welcomed the two sides here in Washington several weeks ago. We understand that talks continued after that in Brussels, and we support the talks continuing. As we’ve said, we believe that an agreement is in reach, and we continue to press the two parties to work together to reach an agreement on the issues that remain outstanding,” Miller said.
Asked whether U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken plans to hold new meetings with the sides in the near future, the spokesman said: "The Secretary did just meet with them several weeks ago. He will continue to stay engaged. But I don’t have any further meetings or announcements to make."
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev held a meeting in the Kremlin late on Thursday.
“Issues related to the unblocking of regional transport and economic infrastructures were discussed,” the Armenian government said in its readout of the meeting.
“An agreement was reached to continue the work after a week, within the framework of the meeting of the deputy prime ministers of the three countries,” reads the statement.
