At the same time, O'Brien emphasized that the peacekeeping forces should not be from Turkey, the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairing countries, including the United States, as well as from the neighboring states of Armenia and Azerbaijan.

We are working with the governments of the Scandinavian countries on the issue of forming peacekeeping forces that could be deployed in the region to maintain the ceasefire,вЂќ the American politician said ...
According to him, a sustainable ceasefire agreement in Nagorno-Karabakh is impossible without the participation of multinational peacekeeping forces or observers.
