The US is concerned over the recent tensions on the Line of Contact and continues to urge both sides to reach a peaceful resolution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Jen Psaki, Spokesperson for the US Department of State, told a press briefing on Monday.
“Well, we are troubled by reports of ceasefire violations, as well as casualties in recent days. These incidents do not correspond to the Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents’ commitments to reach a peaceful resolution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. As an OSCE Minsk Group co-chair country, we do continue to urge, as you noted or previewed, both sides at the highest levels to engage in negotiations that could lead to a peace agreement and adopt measures to reduce the likelihood of such events along the line of contact and along the border. That continues to be our focus.”
