US Secretary Hillary Clinton Visit to Armenia & Azerbaijan Press Conference Interview

(Reuters) - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton began a trip to the South Caucasus region on Monday calling on arch rivals Armenia and Azerbaijan to renounce violence that she warned could slip into a broader regional conflict. "I [...] have called on all parties, all actors, to refrain from the use or threat of force," said Clinton speaking to journalists. "There is a danger that it could escalate into a much broader conflict that would be very tragic for everyone concerned." War between ethnic Azeris and Armenians erupted in 1991 over the mostly Armenian Nagorno-Karabakh region which broke away from Muslim Azerbaijan with the backing of Christian Armenia as the Soviet Union collapsed two decades ago.Sporadic violence still flares along a ceasefire line negotiated in 1994. Some 30000 people were killed and about 1 million became refugees, the majority in Azerbaijan. Clinton's South Caucasus trip will focus largely on US interests and security in the region criss-crossed by energy pipelines, fraught with territorial disputes and the site of a five-day war between Russia and pro-western Georgia in 2008. ======================================================== Geysar Gurbanov is a human rights activist from Azerbaijan.
