Armenian, U.S. envoys meet in Russia to discuss Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian and U.S. Ambassadors to Russia Vagharshak Lynn Tracy met on Friday, May 5 to discuss the establishment of stability in the South Caucasus, relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan, as well as the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

According to a statement from the Armenian embassy, the diplomats emphasized the unconditional implementation of the provisions of the tripartite agreement of November 9, 2020, as well as the importance of trilateral talks held in the United States on May 1-4.

Harutyunyan drew his colleague's attention to the situation in the region as a result of Azerbaijan's aggression against the sovereign territory of Armenia, as well as the crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh. He emphasized that the illegal blockade of the Lachin Corridor connecting Karabakh to Armenia contradicts the November 9 trilateral statement.

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said in a tweet on Wednesday, May 3 that the United States welcomes the “progress” Armenia and Azerbaijan have made in talks in Washington and encourage continued dialogue.

Armenian and Azerbaijani Foreign Ministers Ararat Mirzoyan Jeyhun Bayramov are currently in Washington for a series of talks on the normalization of relations between the two countries, as well as the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
