U.S. Department of State expresses concern over growing tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh VIDEO

Washington, January 6, AZERTAC

Spokesperson for the United States Department of State Jen Psaki has expressed Washington’s concern over growing tensions in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan.

“As an OSCE Minsk Group co-chair country, we do continue to urge, as you noted or previewed, both sides at the highest levels to engage in negotiations that could lead to a peace agreement and adopt measures to reduce the likelihood of such events along the line of contact and along the border. That continues to be our focus.”

The Armenian armed forces have recently escalated the tension on the contact line of Armenian and Azerbaijani troops with frequent ceasefire violations. As a result of a retaliatory fire, two Armenian soldiers Karen Grigoryan and Vardan Mkrtchyan were killed, and Volodya Arutyunyan was injured.
