Analyst: Authorities of Armenia and Artsakh have their share of  responsibility for losses on line of contact  

ArmInfo.The authorities of Armenia and Artsakh have their share of responsibility for the losses on the line of contact, ex-foreign minister of the Nagorno-Karabakh  Republic (NKR), independent analyst Arman Melikyan has told ArmInfo. 

Over the past three days the Azeri armed forces have been intensively  firing at the NKR Defense Army positions from mortars and  large-caliber weapons, killing two Armenian servicemen. One more  Armenian contract soldier has been seriously wounded.  

"I think Baku will keep initiating actions to escalate the tension  until Yerevan and Stepanakert revise their political line and take  measures to effectively resist the bellicose tactics of the Azeri  leadership," he says.    

The analyst notes that Azerbaijan's regular ceasefire violations  vividly demonstrate that the current tactics of the leaderships of  Armenia and Artsakh with respect to the adversary is no longer  effective. 

Melikyan thinks Azerbaijan is unlikely to succeed in a blitzkrieg.  "Anyway, the Armenian side badly needs to take measures to  effectively resist the Azerbaijani tactics aimed at exhausting the  Armenian side. The reluctance of Yerevan and Stepanakert to initiate  such steps to that end make them responsible for our losses on the  line of contact," he says.

I agree with the Ex- Minister. This policy has not prevented a peaceful control of Armenias borders and has drained our nation of our precious resources of blood and fortune. Unlike Azerbaijan, our nation lacks human resources for this type of preventable sacrifices. Armenias government must deliver a meaningful response to Azerbaijan for rethink of their genocidal strategy.
