STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESPERSON JEN PSAKI HOLDS STATE DEPARTMENT REGULAR
NEWS BRIEFING, AS RELEASED BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT

[parts omitted]

QUESTION: Azerbaijan.

MS. PSAKI: Azerbaijan, okay.

QUESTION: This week, you know Azerbaijan, Armenian, and French
president meet in Paris. I would like to know what's the Washington
viewpoint about this meeting, and how is Azerbaijan and Armenian -
is close for big name peace agreement?

MS. PSAKI: Well, we continue to encourage the sides to take
constructive steps to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The
sides can build on the momentum generated during the President's
three meetings this year by adopting measures that builds trust and
confidence, and certainly that can be done through dialogue. Secretary
Kerry also had meetings, as you may know, in Wales. And they can also
enter into a genuine negotiation process to advance a peaceful and
lasting settlement to the conflict. So certainly, we would encourage
that through dialogue.
