Azerbaijan, Baku / corr Trend K.Ramazanova / The Kosovo model for conflict resolution cannot be a precedent for the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, because it is an individual process, Daniel Fried, the US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia, said in a meeting with graduates of US universities in Baku.
"The United States is for the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, because armed operations, irrespective of the reasons, will be dangerous to both nations," Fried said.
He did not comment on the imbalance among the military forces in the South Caucasus. Fried preferred to speak about the resolution of conflicts. "It is necessary to establish stability in this region," he stressed.
The resolution of the conflict will help Azerbaijan to become an economically and politically powerful country, the US Assistant Secretary of State said. The US grant policy is directed at assisting countries in their establishment of a powerful and independent country.
Fried held meetings in Baku, meet with the Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, heads of some non-governmental organizations, opposition parties and graduates of US Universities.
