Armenia: The US Believe in Reconciliation between Yerevan and Baku

Modern mass media are instruments both effective and easy to use in a daily life of a diplomat. The US Ambassador to Armenia runs a videoblog promoting his activities, so anyone interested in official actions of the Embassy can follow.

Every few days, John Heffern, the Ambassador of the US to Armenia, posts on his blog videos about events that take place during his service in Yerevan. In an entry from 14 March, the diplomat speaks about a recently watched film addressing the issue of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations in the context of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Apparently moved (also by his discussion with Armenian youths), he talks about the need for reconciliation between the feuding Caucasian nations.

Diagnosing the Caucasian situation, Heffern referred to the black points in US history, such as slavery, to show the change and effort that were made, and just recently culminated in electing an Afro-American for the US President. “…so real reconciliation is possible, and I hope that we will all work for reconciliation, even if only one person at a time”, he ended his speech.
