Azerbaijan, Baku, 26 August / Trend / Statement by Ann Derse, the US Ambassador to Azerbaijan, was misinterpreted in a news article published by Trend on 26 August under the title 'US Supports Turkey's Initiative to Establish Caucasus Union'

Her statement should be read as it follows, "We have always been a close partner with Turkey in working on all issues.... We will be looking at the proposal and discussing it further with our Turkish colleagues, I am sure.  I do not have any further detail on what our position is on that right now."
