U.S. says Karabakh escalation shows need for sustainable settlement

PanARMENIAN.Net - The United States is "deeply concerned" by and closely following reports of intensive fighting around Nagorno-Karabakh, including casualties and the loss of life, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said Wednesday, August 4.

"We urge immediate steps to reduce tensions and avoid further escalation," Price said in a statement.

"The recent increase in tensions underscores the need for a negotiated, comprehensive, and sustainable settlement of all remaining issues related to or resulting from the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict."

Two Nagorno-Karabakh soldiers were killed and 19 others were injured in Azerbaijan's multiple drone attacks on Wednesday, the Defense Army said. The Azerbaijani military continues violating the ceasefire overnight, using various caliber firearms.
