The presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan reaffirmed their commitment to peace on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Warsaw, according to the American ambassador to the OSCE Minsk Group.
"US Secretary of State John Kerry has spoken to presidents Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev over the peaceful settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict," James Warlick said on Twitter. "All sides refuse war and confirmed their commitment to negotiation process."
Both Sargsyan and Aliyev met Kerry on the sidelines of the summit, which is taking place July 8-9. The men discussed the ongoing situation in Nagorno-Karabakh and reaffirmed their support for peace.
Sargsyan and Aliyev met last month in St Petersburg, and the previous month in Vienna, where both pledged their support for peace. Dozens were killed in early April when heavy fighting flared up for the first time in decades.
