OSCE Minsk Group U.S. Co-chair James Warlick gave an interview to BBC Azeri, noting that the Nagorno Karabakh conflict is not frozen, RFE/RL Armenian Service reports. ... 
According to Warlick, public diplomacy is very important in terms of building confidence between the Azerbaijani and Armenian peoples. 
 “Despite the very high tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the Co-chairs are trying to contribute to communication between the residents of the two countries. In this sense, both the Armenian and Azerbaijani communities of Nagorno-Karabakh are no exception. I have repeatedly stated that the parties, together with the Co-chairs should address the interests of war-affected people, the most striking example being the problem of water. I hope the parties will be able to discuss the distribution of water resources,” the Co-chair said. 
Earlier, Ambassador Warlick posted a photo of Sarsagn reservoir on his Instagram page, suggesting that the joint use of water from the reservoir could serve as the basis for cooperation between the Nagorno Karabakh Republic and Azerbaijan.
