Matthew Miller: The US does not agree with the Azerbaijani claims that the Brussels meeting may escalate the situation in the region

The United States does not agree with the Azerbaijani claims that the Armenia-EU-U.S. high-level meeting to be held in Brussels on April 5 may destabilize and aggravate the situation in the South Caucasus.

As Armenpress reports, Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State Matthew Miller said this at a press briefing in response to a journalist’s question about the claims of the Azerbaijani side that the upcoming Armenia-EU-U.S. meeting is dividing and may push Armenia to destabilize the situation in the region, and that the U.S. and the EU might share responsibility for potential escalation following the meeting.

“So I obviously would not agree with those comments. The focus of this meeting is on economic resilience to help Armenia diversify its trade partnerships and address humanitarian needs. I fail to see why that would be escalatory or would be of a concern to any country in the world,” Miller said.
