U.S. vice president meets leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan separately
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden met with the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan separately on April 1 and called on them to peacefully settle the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Biden "expressed concern about continued violence, called for dialogue, and emphasized the importance of a comprehensive settlement for the long-term stability, security, and prosperity of the region," the White House said.
Both of the Caucasus leaders, in turn, said they encouraged the United States to take an active role in reaching a settlement.
