 U.S. proposes holding meeting on Karabakh conflict settlement in Washington

The United States has proposed holding the next meeting between the Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers in Washington on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, said Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov.

Mammadyarov made the remarks at a joint briefing with his Polish counterpart Jacek Czaputowicz in Warsaw, AzVision.az reports.

“The last meeting of the Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers were held in Moscow on the initiative of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. With a double or triple increase in efforts together with Russia, one can hope for progress in the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” Mammadyarov said.  

“Yesterday we got invitation of the US to visit Washington where the Secretary of State will also put his own way to reach a breakthrough on the conflict resolution,” he added.
