The Unites States' position with regard to solve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has not been changed, Joseph Pennington, the United States Charge in Armenia, said, INTERFAX reported.

"Washington's position regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has not been changed," Pennington said. So, Pennington has commented the opinion by the chief of the Eurasian Policy Department in the Hudson University in the United States. According to the chief, taking into consideration the current relations between Russia and the United States as a result of the conflict in South Ossetia, participation of the two countries in the OSCE Minsk Group is ungrounded. "The statement was not made to officials and does not reflect the United States' position on the Nagorno-Karabakh issue," Pennington said.
