Sekuta: occupied territories should be returned to Azerbaijan
Armenian-occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding areas should be returned to Azerbaijan, US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Sekuta said, commenting on the statement by Congressman Adam Schiff that the failure of the PACE report "The increase of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan" was the result of action taken by US assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland.
Speaking about the settlement of the conflict, it was in solidarity with the recent announcement by the American co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick. "The occupied territories should be returned as part of a comprehensive settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. In addition, the status of Nagorno-Karabakh will be determined in the framework of a comprehensive settlement," APA cites the ambassador as saying.
