YEREVAN. – Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group Co-Chair, Ambassador James Warlick of the United States (US), made a noteworthy revelation when responding to a query from Zhoghovurd daily, the latter reported.
“We had asked how the US looks at the information, according to which the Russian Federation [(RF)] may unilaterally decide to enter peacekeeping forces into the NKR [i.e. the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic], and whether Russia and the US have agreed on a plan to deploy peacekeepers [there].
“The American diplomat actually declassified who cannot be in the peacekeeping forces. ‘The US position is that the [Minsk Group] co-chairing [i.e. US, Russia, and France] and neighboring countries shall not be engaged in the international peacekeeping forces. In our view, the parties agreed on this matter, and the topic has already been discussed,’ noted Warlick,” wrote Zhoghovurd.
