Presidents of Armenia, Azerbaijan willing to intensify the dialogue: James Warlick

“The Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan are willing to meet more frequently,” US Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick said in an interview with the Voice of America.

“We have no date yet, but both Presidents have declared they would like to intensify the dialogue. We are looking for an opportunity now to organize such a discussion,” he said.

“The role of the Co-Chairs is to frame that discussion,” he said, adding that the mediators hope to visit the region soon to prepare the meeting of the Presidents.

Positively assessing the results of the recent meeting with Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, Warlick said “I believe both President Sargsyan and President Aliyev are willing to solve the issue through negotiations.”

“The conflict has claimed too many human lives. We want to put an end to this,” the Co-Chair said.

Warlick did not rule out that the Co-Chairs could hold meetings in Nagorno Karabakh during the forthcoming visit.
