The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict holds Armenia and Azerbaijan in a state of no peace-no war, R. Nicholas Burns, the U.S. Secretary of State Assistant for Political Affairs, Head of the U.S. Delegation at the OSCE Ministerial Meeting, stated, Trend reports.
Similarly, the unresolved Nagorno-Karabakh conflict prevents the return of hundreds of thousands of refugees and displaced persons, he added. Regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh, we thank Russia and France, our Minsk Group Co-Chairs. We have developed with the leaders of Azerbaijan and Armenia a reasoned approach which promises to lead to a negotiated settlement. Our organization should now call on the leaders to turn these ideas into an agreement, Burns said.
