The United States should cooperate with Russia in the settlement of Nagorno Karabakh problem, said New York Council on Foreign Relations, Professor Carey Cavanaugh who previously held the post of Special Representative of the United States to resolve the conflicts in Eurasia, according to TASS.

“President Trump has already announced its intention to cooperate with Russia. Joint actions with regard to the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict could be a starting point for further efforts of the two countries in other areas,” said Cavanaugh.

According to him, it would be wrong to believe that the Minsk process has not given the results: “The fact that in recent years there has not been a large-scale conflict, speaks for itself.”

The expert being the co-chair of OSCE Minsk Group in 1999-2001, is sure of the need to put into practice the previously agreed confidence-building and security measures in the region, in particular to increase the number of OSCE observers, and to establish an independent mechanism to investigate incidents on the contact line, which will help to reduce the number of violations of the ceasefire . “The settlement of the conflict is in the interest of all,” – said Cavanaugh.
