BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 27. The US sees a real opportunity for Azerbaijan and Armenia to make peace, James O'Brien, the US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, told journalists, TurkicWorld reports.
“I think here, as I’ve said publicly, we see a real opportunity for Azerbaijan and Armenia to make peace. We’re encouraged that the two sides are speaking with one another directly and with mediators. And with that, we see a real opportunity for the entire region to benefit,” he said.
O'Brien noted that, if trade from Central Asia is able to flow through Azerbaijan and Armenia into Türkiye, then it would be a substantial boost for all the countries on that trade route.
“And we’d welcome the opportunity to be part of that,” the official added.
