US Assistant Secretary Daniel Fried said

War will become a catastrophe for Azerbaijan’s future, US Assistant
Secretary Daniel Fried stated. Answering the question if the hope
for the Daqliq Qarabaq conflicts settlement has become less and if
presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan have missed such an opportunity,
taking into account the fact that soon in both countries presidential
campaigns will launch, Daniel Fried said, "I do not want to criticize,
but I think we all are disappointed. The last meeting of presidents did
not produce any results that we were expecting. There were good talks,
I would even say a good dialog, a certain progress was fixed". He
expressed hope that "in a certain stage the presidents would find a
common way to move forward".

"After all, it proceeds from the interests of all parties.

Azerbaijan’s future is vague until this problem is resolved,"
the American diplomat underlined. He expressed assurance that the
Daqliq Qarabaq conflict can be resolved only via peaceful way. War
will destroy Azerbaijan’s future. Peaceful solution of the Qarabaq
problem is the way to go through. We have passed such a way and I hope
we will reach the solution of the problem," Daniel Fried concluded.
