"We are concerned about any loss of life on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border and the Line of Contact. The number of incidents and resulting deaths and injuries is also a setback in our efforts to work with parties to find a lasting peace", U.S. Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick says in an interview with APA, when commenting on the detention of the Azeri subversive group in Karvachar.
APA quotes Warlick as saying, "The U.S. and the Minsk Group Co-Chairs are committed to helping the sides find a peaceful settlement of the NK conflict. There is no military solution to this conflict. In fact, the Co-Chairs look forward to meeting with Foreign Ministers Nalbandian and Mammadyarov in Brussels on July 22 to discuss next steps".
He expresses hope that the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan, Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev, will accept the invitation to a summit in Paris. "We witnessed that progress is possible when the Presidents met in Vienna last November and believe that a continuation of that discussion is an important step in progress towards peace. The Co-Chairs and the U.S. stand ready to help in any way we can", the U.S. Co-Chair says. James Warlick points out that Ambassador Pierre Andrieu has already started his duties as the French Co-Chair.
