MFA Azerbaijan on the the press statement of the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken dated August 24
United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken's press statement on the appointment of Philip Reeker to the post of Senior Advisor for Caucasus Negotiations causes surprise, as it shows an approach far from the post-conflict reality in the region.
Azerbaijan's position regarding the Minsk Group has been repeatedly and clearly expressed at the highest level.
Attempts to "resuscitate" the de-facto non-functioning Minsk Group may result the USA to be estranged from the process of normalization of Azerbaijan-Armenia relations.
The Karabakh conflict has been resolved and Karabakh is an integral part of Azerbaijan. The international community, including our partners, should understand that connecting negotiations on the normalization of Azerbaijan-Armenia relations with the Karabakh issue does not serve normalization at all.
