President Donald Trump said Friday his administration is working with Armenia in its conflict with Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh territory, citing the size of the Armenian diaspora in the U.S.

“We’re working with Armenia. We have a very good relationship with Armenia -- they’re very good people, they’re so dedicated, they’re incredible people, and we’ll see what happens,” Trump said in the Oval Office. He declined to say if he’d spoken to leaders from either Armenia or Azerbaijan.
