U.S. says Azerbaijan agreed to allow international observers into Nagorno-Karabakh

Azerbaijan has agreed to allow an international monitoring mission to enter Nagorno-Karabakh, U.S. Department of State spokesperson Matthew Miller said.

His comments came as USAID Administrator Samantha Power and U.S. Acting Assistant Secretary Yuri Kim visited Azerbaijan after their Armenia trip on Wednesday.

“So I would say a few things. Number one, as you noted, Samantha Power, the USAID administrator, and Acting Assistant Secretary Yuri Kim are in Azerbaijan today, where they stressed a number of things, the same things that the Secretary stressed in his conversation with President Aliyev yesterday and that I reiterated at the podium, which is that, number one, we want to see the ceasefire maintained; number two, we want to see humanitarian needs addressed; that means keeping the Lachin corridor open, it means ensuring that humanitarian supplies can come in, and that it means an international monitoring mission to ensure that humanitarian needs are addressed,” Miller told a press briefing on Wednesday.

"And I will say that we did welcome the comments by the Government of Azerbaijan just a little while ago before I came out to this podium, that they would welcome such an international monitoring mission. That’s something that the Secretary had directly pushed the president for, and we’re glad to see his having agreed to it, and we will work with our allies and partners in the coming days to flesh out exactly what that mission will look like. But then ultimately what we do want to see is a return to the negotiating table, where they can ultimately reach a dignified, lasting peace," he added.

The spokesman highlighted Washington’s efforts to broker a peace agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan, at the same time adding “it’s up to the two parties to come to some resolution.”

"We have been pursuing negotiations. The Secretary has been having direct conversations with the president of Azerbaijan, the prime minister of Armenia. We’ve had a number of officials travel to the region – not just in the past week or 10 days since hostilities broke out but going back months and months and months. We have done everything we can to pursue diplomacy, but ultimately, remember, it’s up to the two parties here who are the parties that have direct disagreements. We can do everything we can to push them but ultimately they have to agree to talk and they have to agree to ultimately come to some resolution. That’s what we’re going to do, is continue to play our part to facilitate that," Miller noted.
