Ararat Mirzoyan highly appreciated the resolute position of the  United States regarding the issue of recognizing the Armenian  Genocide. In this context, referring to President Joe Biden's this  year's statement on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, the  Foreign Minister underscored that, therefore, the United States  reiterated its commitment to the protection of human rights, the  values and principles of humanity.

The sides also discussed issues related to international and regional  security and stability. In this context, Ararat Mirzoyan briefed the  U.S. Secretary of State on the situation resulting from the  infiltration of the Azerbaijani armed forces into the sovereign  territory of the Republic of Armenia and the recent aggression  against the territorial integrity of Armenia. In this regard, the  interlocutors highlighted the importance of implementing steps  towards the de-escalation of the situation.

At the meeting, the sides had a detailed discussion on the  Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. In the context of urgent humanitarian  issues resulting from the 44-day war unleashed by Azerbaijan against  Artsakh, the imperative of repatriating Armenian prisoners of war,  hostages and other detainees was stressed.  Foreign Minister Mirzoyan  and Secretary of State Blinken emphasized the need for a resumption  of the peace process aimed at comprehensive and lasting settlement of  the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict under the mandate of the OSCE Minsk  Group Co-Chairmanship. The role of the United States as a Co-Chair  country was also highlighted.
