Statement by Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Elizabeth Jones on US-European Relations,
House International Relations Committee, Sub-Committee on Europe, Washington D.C., 13 March 2002

In the Caucasus, we are working with Armenia and Azerbaijan to resolve their conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh. We seek a comprehensive settlement through the Minsk Group peace process. Georgian sovereignty is important to the Administration. We are proposing a program to develop Georgia’s internal capacity to deal with terrorism now and in the future. We also are working to support the development of democracy and human rights in the Caucasus.
