United States urges Armenia and Azerbaijan to return as soon as possible to substantive discussions, said Ned Price department spokesperson while commenting on recent tension on Armenia-Azerbaijan border, APA reports citing website of US Department of State.

“The United States condemns the recent escalation of violence along the international border between Armenia and Azerbaijan. We call on Armenia and Azerbaijan to uphold their ceasefire commitments by taking immediate steps to de-escalate the situation," Ned Price added.

According to her, continued tensions along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border underscore the fact that only a comprehensive resolution that addresses all outstanding issues can normalize relations between the two countries and allow the people of the region to live together peacefully: “The United States urges Armenia and Azerbaijan to return as soon as possible to substantive discussions under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs to achieve a long-term political settlement to the conflict,” Ned Price emphasized.
