Washington on Monday reiterated its role in peace talks between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

"We have been taking an active role," State Department's spokesperson said in response to TURAN's questions during his daily press briefing.

"We’ve consistently said that we are ready and stand ready to engage bilaterally and with likeminded partners, including through our role as an OSCE Minsk Group co-chair, to help the countries find a long-term, comprehensive peace," Price explained.

Secretary Blinken had an opportunity in recent weeks to engage with his foreign minister counterparts. "Assistant Secretary Karen Donfried, others in this building, have also had an opportunity to engage at high levels with their Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts as well," Price said.

"We did welcome the meeting between the representatives... We continue to believe that dialogue is the best means by which to achieve a peaceful, democratic, and prosperous future for the South Caucasus region, and we’ll continue to support that in any way we can," Price added when commenting on Secretary Antony Blinken's recent tweet following Armenian and Azeri foreign ministers' meeting in Tbilisi.
