Armenia prefers peace talks with Azerbaijan to continue in Washington and Brussels


YEREVAN, DECEMBER 8, ARTSAKHPRESS. Armenia hopes that the US will put sufficient effort and pressure on Azerbaijan in order for the negotiations to continue in Washinton, Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Relations Sargis Khandanyan told reporters.

“There’s no information at this moment regarding the date and the conditions, but as you know Armenia is always in favor of continuing the negotiations on the foreign ministerial level in this format,” he said when asked on an expected meeting with Azerbaijan in the U.S. capital. “We hope that our colleagues in the United States will put sufficient effort, and perhaps pressure, on Azerbaijan so that the negotiations continue in Washington,” he said when asked about Baku’s participation.

Armenia has accepted the offer to hold talks with Azerbaijan in Washington.

Asked whether Armenia would be ready to hold talks in Moscow, Khandanyan said, “As far as I know there are no specific timeframes or proposals on holding negotiations in Moscow. It is also very important to ensure the continuity of the logic of the negotiations, and a logic has been developed that rounds of foreign ministerial negotiations were held in Washington and summits were held in Brussels, so it would be better to ensure the continuity in order not to start everything again from a new point.”
