The US does not consider the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict frozen, US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta told reporters on Friday.
The US is very concerned over the escalation of violence on the contact line of Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, the ambassador said, adding the US co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick along with his Russian and French counterparts is dealing with this issue.
“What we talked to both sides about is that they need to take steps back to improve the situation. People think this is a frozen conflict. If people are dying, this is not a frozen conflict. We are trying to work with the parties to find a way forward. All the parties need to take steps to reduce the tensions and help find a way forward,” he said.
