U.S. Secretary of State urges 3rd parties not to interfere in NK conflict
YEREVAN, OCTOBER 2, ARMENPRESS. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a reconciliation call addressed to Nagorno Jarabakh conflicting sides, urging 3rd parties not to interfere in the conflict.
‘’Our view is that this has been a longstanding conflict between these two countries in this particular piece of real estate. We’re discouraging internationalization of this. We think outsiders ought to stay out. We’re urging a ceasefire. We want them both to back up. We’ve spoken to the leadership in each of the two countries, asking them to do just that. We’re hopeful that in the days ahead they’ll see that violence won’t resolve the conflicts that are there, the ethnic and political conflicts and strife that are there, and having third parties – other nations – join in that only exacerbates the problem'’, ARMENPRESS reports Pompeo as saying, speaking to Fox News.
