During a recent discussion, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev discussed the importance of advancing the peace process between Azerbaijan and Armenia. The conversation emphasized that achieving peace in the region would bring economic benefits to the entire area.

He also mentioned discussions held by Foreign Ministers in Berlin regarding a peace agreement text and stressed the importance of speeding up negotiations. He reaffirmed Azerbaijan’s commitment to declarations adopted in previous meetings.
