According to Philip Gordon, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, Washington intends to work with Armenia and Azerbaijan for settling Nagorno-Karabakh conflict - RosBalt.


He reminded that OSCE Minsk group co-chairmen countries' Presidents noted progress in negotiations and made a statement, demonstrating adherence to the mediation mission of the Minsk group, at the top level.

In the course of the G8 summit in Canada leaders of Russia, USA, and France - Dmitry Medvedev, Barack Obama, and Nicolas Sarkozy - made a joint statement on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. 

They called on leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan - Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev respectively - accelerate work on basic principles of conflict settlement and start working on peace treaty draft. 

"We welcome as a significant step the recognition by both sides that a lasting settlement must be based upon the Helsinki Principles and the elements that we proposed in connection with our statement at the L'Aquila Summit of the Eight on July 10, 2009, relating to: the return of the occupied territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, interim status for Nagorno-Karabakh guaranteeing security and self-governance, a corridor linking Armenia to Nagorno-Karabakh; final status of Nagorno-Karabakh to be determined in the future by a legally-binding expression of will, the right of all internally-displaced persons and refugees to return, and international security guarantees, including a peacekeeping operation," the statement says.
