US to Host Fresh Armenia-Azerbaijan Talks


YEREVAN ( — The United States looks forward to hosting a new round of peace talks between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Washington later this month, U.S. Department of State spokesman Vedant Patel said on Monday, June 5.

Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan and his Azerbaijani counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov, are expected to start a new round of marathon talks in Washington on June 12.

“We look forward to hosting another round of talks in Washington later this month as the parties continue to pursue a peaceful future for the South Caucasus region,” he told a press briefing.

“As you’ve heard me say before, direct dialogue is key to resolving issues and reaching a durable and dignified peace. The U.S. is pleased that talks between Armenia and Azerbaijan are proceeding in different venues, including the recent meeting of leaders as well. But I don’t have anything else to offer on that,” Patel added.
