We are also disturbed by allegations that Mirkadirov's arrest may be connected with his critical reporting about the Azerbaijani government or his participation in people-to-people (Track II) efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Track II contacts are important confidence-building measures that help prepare both societies for a peaceful resolution of the conflict”, says the Embassy press service.
