Pelosi, at a joint press conference with Armenian Parliament Speaker Alen Roberti Simonyan in the capital Yerevan, claimed that attacks were carried out on Armenian lands by Azerbaijan. Pelosi said they “strongly condemned the attacks”.
Pelosi noted that the US has long been openly advocating that the Azerbaijani-Armenian conflict cannot be resolved militarily.
Stating that they continue to monitor the situation in the region closely, Pelosi stated that they continue to support a negotiated, comprehensive and sustainable solution for all issues related to the Karabakh conflict.
Pelosi called for a negotiated solution to the conflict between the two countries.
Noting that 40 percent of US citizens of Armenian descent live in the state of California, of which she is a representative, Pelosi expressed that she feels like she is on a “family visit” for this reason.
Visiting the so-called genocide monument in Yerevan before the press conference, Pelosi was seen wiping her eyes while laying a wreath on the monument.
The conflict on the Azerbaijan-Armenia border
The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan announced that the conflict started as a result of the large-scale provocation of the Armenian forces on the night of September 12 in the directions of Azerbaijan’s Dashkesen, Kelbajar, Lachin and Zangilan.
As a result of diplomatic contacts, it was reported that Azerbaijan and Armenia agreed on a ceasefire in the biggest conflict after the 2nd Karabakh War.
Azerbaijan announced that 79 soldiers were martyred. Armenia, on the other hand, announced the number of Armenian soldiers who died as 135.
Azerbaijan announced that it was ready to give the bodies of about 100 Armenian soldiers who lost their lives in the conflicts to Yerevan, and delivered 32 bodies on 18 September.
