"We believe [the statement] will become a signal that the isolation of Artsakh is unacceptable," Sargsyan said.
"We are convinced that the dialogue between Artsakh and the United States, as well as the other two OSCE Minsk Group co-chairing countries through direct official contacts at various levels will create favorable conditions for comprehensive discussions and for finding ways for the final settlement of the Azerbaijan-Karabakh conflict and become an important contribution to the establishment of stability in the South Caucasus."
“We must remain committed to strengthening the ceasefire in Nagorno Karabakh, removing barriers to dialogue, and resolving status and security issues that have hindered discussions in the past,” said Rep. Pallone had said.
“Allowing direct and open dialogue and allowing our diplomats to have a presence on the ground as necessary and when safe is the only way for the United States to help bring this conflict to a resolution.”
