Pashinyan disagrees with U.S. diplomat that territorial concessions to Azerbaijan are necessary

YEREVAN. Oct 17 (Interfax) - Acting Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has disagreed with the opinion of the outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Armenia, Richard Mills, that the Karabakh conflict cannot be resolved without returning some of the "occupied territories" to Azerbaijan.

"We can view the statement made by the outgoing ambassador as the outgoing message," Pashinyan said in his comments.

Mills told the Armenian Internet portal EVNReport on Tuesday that Armenia would have to reach compromise with Azerbaijan in the Karabakh settlement process.
