"We are concerned about any loss of life on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border and the line of contact," the U.S. co-chair of OSCE Minsk Group, James Warlick told Trend.
He commented on the capture of Azerbaijanis by Armenians in Azerbaijan's occupied Kalbajar region, as well as the reports by the Armenian media about the murder of one Azerbaijani.
"The number of incidents and resulting deaths and injuries is also a setback in our efforts to work with parties to find a lasting peace".
"The U.S. and the Minsk Group co-chairs are committed to helping the sides find a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. There is no military solution to this conflict," Warlick stressed.
He went on to add that the co-chairs look forward to meeting with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov and Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian in Brussels on July 22 to discuss the next steps towards solution of the conflict.
"We hope that both presidents will accept the invitation to a summit in Paris. We witnessed that progress is possible when the presidents met in Vienna last November and believe that a continuation of that discussion is an important step in progress towards peace. The co-chairs and the U.S. stand ready to help in any way we can," the U.S. co-chair said.
