Alexander Iskandaryan: Karabakh issue can remain open dozens, if not  hundreds of years

Alexander Iskandaryan: Karabakh issue can remain open dozens, if not  hundreds of years

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.
