‘’Contacts with the USE over Nagorno Karabakh conflict will continue. I think face-to-face contacts are fully possible, depending on the situation in the region, including before the presidential elections in the USA’’, he said.

According to the Deputy Minister, the comments of the U.S. Department of State over Nagorno Karabakh in no way mention Russia or the role of Russia in bringing the conflicting sides to an agreement.
