Baku, March 10, AssA-Irada
The Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict over Upper (Nagorno) Garabagh is
"real and dangerous", the US ambassador in Baku Reno Harnish has said.

Harnish said the two countries' leaders and the OSCE Minsk Group
co-chairs brokering settlement to the dispute should be active to
achieve a resolution.

"The recent ceasefire violations show that this is not a frozen,
but a real and dangerous conflict. I believe the presidents, foreign
ministers as well as the MG co-chairs should take courageous steps
to find a peaceful solution to the problem," the diplomat added.
