US State Department calls on sides to Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to avoid escalation

Washington is deeply concerned over the recent violations of the ceasefire, which have resulted in multiple casualties on the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh over the last week, US Sate Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement.

"We urge the sides to avoid escalation and encourage immediate consideration of measures to reduce tensions along the Line of Contact and the international border between Armenia and Azerbaijan,” the statement reads.

According to the statement the United States continues to engage intensely with the sides: "Our longstanding policy, shared by the Minsk Group co-chairs, is that a just settlement must be based on international law, which includes the Helsinki Final Act."
