On October 23, 2020, Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov met with Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives.
The sides exchanged views on the latest developments in the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the situation on the frontline, Armenia's violation of the humanitarian ceasefire, and the continuation of negotiations mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs.
Minister Jeyhun Bayramov stressed that the Armenian side violated the ceasefire and its obligations under international humanitarian law, destroyed the negotiations, launched missile strikes not only from the occupied Azerbaijani territories but also from Armenia on Azerbaijani cities located far from the conflict zone and tried to involve third parties in the conflict.
