U.S. confirms schedule of Armenia-Azerbaijan talks

PanARMENIAN.Net - The next round of negotiations between Armenia are expected to commence in Washington, DC on Tuesday, June 27 and continue through Thursday.

Foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan, Ararat Mirzoyan and Jeyhun Bayramov are in the United States to meet with Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken and to discuss what the Secretary described as the “last time as last mile of the marathon.”

Department of State Spokesperson Matthew Miller confirmed the schedule and said the parties will discuss a number of issues.

“I’m not going to read those out publicly, obviously. They’re very sensitive diplomatic discussions that will take place here,” Miller said.

“We expect the talks will commence tomorrow, on Tuesday, continue through Thursday of this week. Secretary Blinken will meet with the foreign ministers from both Azerbaijan and Armenia. We’ll have more details as the week progresses.” Miller said the United States continues to believe that peace is within reach and direct dialogue is the key to resolving the remaining issues and reaching a durable and dignified peace.
