Blinken To Meet With Bayramov, Mirzoyan In Washington Today

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blniken is planning to meet with Azerbaijani and Armenian Foreign Ministers this afternoon (Baku time) in Washington D.C. for peace negotiations, TURAN’s U.S. correspondent reports.

Both ministers are currently in the U.S. capital to take part in the ongoing NATO events. 

“We continue to work for a diplomatic resolution,” State Deptartment Spokesperson Matthew Miller told TURAN’s Washington correspondent during a Monday briefing when asked whether Washington was hoping for “a happy ending” ahead of the ministers’ expected dialogue. 

This will be Blinken’s first meeting with his Azeri and Armenian counterparts on the U.S. soil since last fall, when Azerbaijan had cancelled a scheduled trilateral on Nov. 20  due to the “one-sided approach of the United States,” as the country’s Foreign Ministry put it. 

Last week, Blinken told a Washington audience that his country had ‘invested intensely’ with its own diplomacy in trying to help bring Azerbaijan and Armenia to a peace agreement, which he described as “achievable.”
