    U.S. 'Continues to Support' Please Talks: State Department

    The United States said on Thursday it 'continues to support' peace talks to resolve the issues between Azerbaijan and Armenia, despite Baku's rejection of the next ministerial meeting in Washington, TURAN's U.S. correspondent reports.

    "We would encourage the two parties to engage in those talks, whether they are here, whether they are somewhere else, and that will continue to be our policy," State Department's spokesperson Matthew Miller told a daily briefing in response to TURAN's questions,

    Earlier in the day, Azerbaijan's Foreign Ministry sharply reacted to this week's hearing in the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, where, the ministry said, Assistant Secretary of State James O’Brien made “biased remarks” about Azerbaijan.

    “We do not consider it possible to hold the proposed meeting on the level of the Foreign Ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia in Washington on November 20, 2023,” the Ministry said in a statement.

    The United States, as a host country, had not formally announced next week's ministerial meeting. It wasn't immediately clear whether Washington will host the next round of discussion without Azerbaijan's participation.
