The US administration is confident that peace will emerge in the South Caucasus, Yuri Kim, acting as the US Secretary of State’s assistant for European and Eurasian affairs, said this today at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s hearing on the situation in Karabakh, APA reports.
He said that his country is interested in establishing peace.
“We believe that the achievement of peace between Armenia and Azerbaijan is in line with the national security interests of the United States as well as the region. A durable and dignified peace will promote energy security and the development of regional transport links. One of the serious problems for peace in this region is the lack of trust and confidence. “It is the result of decades of conflict and instability. We must encourage and encourage all parties to work constructively,” he said.
Yuri Kim stated that in order to achieve sustainable peace, it is necessary to fight against the harmful influence of actors like Russia, China and Iran in the region.
He reminded that the heads of foreign affairs of Armenia and Azerbaijan met several times within the framework of peace negotiations, with the participation of US Secretary of State Blinken.
The US diplomat added that these meetings gave certain results, such as starting the discussion of the delimitation issue.
