    Peace process not the focus of Armenia-EU-US meeting – State Dept

    The Armenia-Azerbaijan peace process is not the focus of the upcoming trilateral meeting between the U.S., EU and Armenia, State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller has said.

    “This meeting is about Armenia’s reforms and its democracy, economy, and resilience. The peace process is not the focus of this meeting,” he told a press briefing on Monday in response to a question whether Azerbaijan has been invited to the meeting slated for 5 April.

    “It’s a meeting between the U.S., EU and Armenia to discuss economic diversification, humanitarian assistance, support for refugees, and supporting Armenia’s political reforms in areas such as democracy and the rule of law. It is not a regionally focused meeting,” Miller noted.

    The meeting will be attended by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
