The US Co-chairman of the OSCE Minks Group James Warlick took to Twitter Thursday to praise the recent decision by the leaders of Cyprus and occupied northern Cyprus to begin negotiations. He ended his tweet by asking: “Why can’t this happen for Nagorno-#Karabakh?”
The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic foreign ministry quickly replied to Warlick on Twitter with the following post: “@AmbJamesWarlick We agree that it’s high time for restoration of full-fledged negotiations with direct participation of Nagorno #Karabakh.”
Warlick, who has been very active on Twitter in recent weeks expressing his views and posting updates about meetings with Armenian and Azeri officials, had not immediately responded to clarify his earlier post.
Is the US Co-chairman saying that Karabakh needs to be a full-fledged part of the peace talks?–a point being emphasized by official Stepanakert for several years. It would be interesting to know.
