Forecast: Tension over Karabakh will deepen Russia`s military  presence in Armenia and military-technical cooperation of Azerbaijan  with NATO member Turkey

ArmInfo.The current round of tensions over Karabakh will further deepen Russia's military presence in Armenia and Azerbaijan's military-technical cooperation with NATO member Turkey, notes Per Anders Johansen, a columnist for the oldest  Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten, who recently visited Artsakh.

July was marked by another burst of violence on the contact line  between Artsakh and Azerbaijani troops.  Against the backdrop of  numerous violations of the cease-fire regime, the events of July 4  and 7 were particularly noteworthy.

Initiator, accompanied by victims, including among the civilian  population, the heating of the situation is traditionally the  leadership of Azerbaijan. However, Yerevan and Baku give their  version of events, and the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, avoiding  unambiguous assessments, emphasize the inadmissibility of military  incidents.

"The situation around the Karabakh conflict is aggravated by the arms  race between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the internal political problems  and the general economic situation in the region, as well as the  thirst for revenge growing in societies." As a result, Europe can  witness a new war in Karabakh, with the prospect of a clash of  regional powers, " reviewer.

He estimates that given that one side of the conflict is supported by  Russia for a hundred years and another by Turkey, a new war can  become much more dangerous than one might imagine.
