United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken had a trilateral conversation with the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan, Ararat Mirzoyan and Jeyhun Bayramov, and discussed the recently renewed tensions between the latter two countries, the State Department said on Tuesday.

The Secretary commended the release of POWs [prisoners of war] and reiterated our commitment to helping Armenia and Azerbaijan resolve issues peacefully," the statement read.
