"2006 will be a window in the solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and will provide unique opportunities for its settlement," said Reno Harnish, the US Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador to Azerbaijan at a meeting with students of the Khazar University on Friday.
According to the diplomat, the United States are for peaceable resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through fair dialogue. "We are interested in the settlement of conflict and put every effort under the OSCE Minsk Group," said Harnish, noting the forthcoming visit of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs to Baku in mid-December.
As to possible rehabilitation of armed actions the Ambassador said that the armed resistance would lead to big destructions. "New war can lead to destabilization throughout the South-Caucasus region. The same time, the rehabilitation of the military actions will actually ruin Azerbaijan’s hopes on economic development," the diplomat underlined.
