ArmInfo"The result of the meeting in Brussels of the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan is a simple statement of the negotiation process continues." The fact that Azerbaijan did not cancel the meeting despite the aggravation of the situation on the border is very revealing. "The aggravation of the conflict is the tactics of Azerbaijan. Time has become a habit to combine negotiations with the aggravation of the Karabakh conflict, "said Alexander Iskandaryan, Director of the Caucasus Institute at a press conference on July 13 at a press conference in Yerevan..
As the expert noted, Azerbaijan, combining the negotiation process together with the exacerbations on the border, is trying, therefore, to exert pressure on Armenia. "To think that the negotiation process can lead to the cessation of shooting is wrong, while Azerbaijan is not ready for a full-scale war, so the pressure on the Armenian side is rather psychological, but in the near future, the situation can not be ruled out," the expert said.
According to the political scientist, the result of the meeting of the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan is not, which should be expected. All expectations were that Azerbaijan was expected to establish confidence-building measures, but official Baku is desperately resisting it, since the establishment of these measures will consolidate the situation that exists at the moment. "And Azerbaijan does not like such a scenario," Iskandaryan said.
Also, the political scientist noted that at the moment there are no prerequisites for the recognition of the Republic of Artsakh by Armenia, as this would mean the collapse of the Minsk agreements, which is currently unprofitable for Yerevan. "At the moment, the talks are aimed at the talks, and the Armenian side will try to exert pressure and stop the violence of Azerbaijan through the negotiation process, but in this situation, political pressure alone is not enough," the political scientist said. "No one can solve the conflict for us, neither the Minsk Group nor anyone else, but the decision of Armenia does not suit Azerbaijan, and vice versa." There is also no option of a compromise that would be arranged by both sides. "Thus, the Karabakh issue can remain open Dozens, even hundreds of years, "Iskandaryan concluded.
