Top US, Russian Officials Meet for Talks on Karabakh

GENEVA–Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin met with US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasian Affairs Philip Gordon in the Swiss capital on Wednesday for talks on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.

The two top-level officials discussed the state of the Karabakh peace talks between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the Transdniestria-Moldova conflict, Central Asia and the NATO-led war in Afghanistan.

“The sides had an in-depth discussion on the current situation in Transcaucasia, prospects of Geneva discussions and issues related to non-use of force,” a Russian Foreign Ministry statement said. “The Russian side stressed the pressing need for finding an acceptable way of legalizing the commitment not to use of force, particularly through relevant unilateral declarations by Abkhazia, Georgia and South Ossetia.”
