On June 28, the meeting between Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan and national security advisor to US President Jake Sullivan took place in Washington D.C. Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Jeyhun Bayramov also took part at the meeting.

During the meeting, the latest regional developments were discussed.

In the context of achieving lasting peace and stability in the South Caucasus Foreign Minister of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan highlighted the importance of ensuring maximum certainty on the issue of delimitation based on the map of 1975 and the Alma-Ata declaration, as well as the withdrawal of the troops. The issues of unblocking regional infrastructures were also touched upon, emphasising the absence of an alternative to following the principles of sovereignty, jurisdiction, equality and reciprocity.

Foreign Minister of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan once again stressed the importance of properly addressing the issues of rights and security of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh. Touching upon the most recent aggressive action of Azerbaijan, which today resulted in four casualties of the Defence Army of Nagorno-Karabakh, Minister Mirzoyan stressed that such incidents were aimed at disturbing the efforts in the negotiating process and emphasised the imperative to exclude the use of force or threat of use of force. Minister Mirzoyan highlighted that Azerbaijan carried out this action in parallel with the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh resulting from the illegal blockade of the Lachin corridor, deliberate disruption of gas and electricity supply to Nagorno-Karabakh, aimed at subjecting Nagorno-Karabakh to ethnic cleansing.
