US committed to Armenia-Azerbaijan peace process, says Blinken

SECRETARY of State Antony Blinken promised US support for the peace process between Armenia and Azerbaijan in separate conversations with the two countries’ leaders over the weekend, while calling for the opening of a road leading to disputed territory. 

Armenia and Azerbaijan are engaged in a decades-long standoff, and have fought two wars over the mountainous enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh that have left tens of thousands dead.
