American political experts think that Russia wants to have the main  role in Karabakh settlement issue

ArmInfo. Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has not yet attracted the attention of US President Donald Trump's administration, but in the next few months the situation may change, "Atlantic Council analyst, former ambassador of America to Ukraine John Herbst, said in the Voice of America program.

According to him, at the moment, a possible meeting between the  Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan will have a predominantly  symbolic character. "The meeting of the presidents will mean easing  of tension, which is generally laudable, however, I see no  prerequisites and grounds for a favorable and reasonable settlement  of this issue," said Herbst.

"The obstacle in the settlement of Karabakh conflict is the interests  of the numerous parties involved in the conflict," said Michael  Rubin, an analyst at the American Enterprise Institute. "If this  problem concerned only two states, then, perhaps, it would have been  solved, however, such states as Russia want to preserve this  confrontation," the expert said.

Analyst of the Washington Institute for Middle East Policy Anna  Borschevskaya noted that the Nagorno- Karabakh issue is top priority  for the Armenian government, however, Russia's participation in this  issue does not help the parties reach a consensus. "The thing is,  Russia really wants to play an active role in this confrontation, and  if there is no confrontation, then its role is reduced,"  Barshcheuskaya noted.
