YEREVAN, MARCH 8, ARMENPRESS. The role of the US in the Armenian-Azerbaijani settlement process is not mediation, no text will be imposed on the parties. ARMENPRESS reports Louis Bono, the American co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group, the senior adviser of the US State Department on negotiations in the South Caucasus, told "Azatutyun" radio station.

"Our role in this process is not mediation. We are not here to impose a text, to wrap conditions around the neck of either side. What we are trying to do is facilitate peace. I mean, we want the parties themselves to work out the text and the terms and agree on them together. They must work on it together, because any lasting, sustainable and balanced peace must come from both sides. It cannot come from a third party, from outside," said Bono.
