According to a joint statement, “Both sides reiterated the commitments made by the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan in their meetings in Prague on 6 October and in Sochi on 31 October.”

In this sense, the document indicates that high diplomats addressed elements of a potential peace treaty, recognizing that there are “a range of issues” that need to be discussed in depth.

For his part, the United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, who mediated the meeting in Washington, urged the parties to resolve differences through direct negotiations.

Similarly, the US official pointed out that “more than 30 years of conflict around Nagorno-Karabakh has inflicted tremendous costs on a human and material level.”

Last week, Armenia’s Prime Minister, Nikol Pashinyan, and Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev announced their commitment not to use force in the dispute over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, in the framework of a summit held in Russia.

In the year 2020, the two ex-Soviet countries agreed to a ceasefire with the mediation of Russia, however, last September saw fresh skirmishes in which around 300 people died.
