Expert: During the meeting Aliyev-Pashinyan Baku will press the issue  for granting autonomy to Artsakh, Yerevan - changing the format and  principles of negotiations

ArmInfo. The likelihood of resumption of hostilities in the Karabakh conflict zone always exists, as evidenced by the statement by the leadership of Artsakh  that Azerbaijan is strengthening its infrastructures and engineering  structures on the contact line by carrying out road construction  works. The director of the Armenian branch of the Institute of CIS  Countries Alexander Markarov said this at a press conference.

According to him, Baku's active actions indicate that Azerbaijan is  not ready for peace. At the same time, Markarov stressed that only  the international community and the high combat readiness of the  Armenian armed forces can be the guarantor of the non-resumption of  hostilities in the conflict zone.

Speaking about the upcoming meeting of Prime Ministers of Armenia  Nikol Pashinyan and President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, the expert  noted that Aliyev will try to negotiate on the issue of granting  broad autonomy to Nagorno-Karabakh. However, as he stressed, in  reality, Baku wants to get only the territory of Karabakh, without  its population.

"As for the Armenian side, there are several issues that could  theoretically be raised during the meeting - a question of changing  the format and principles of the negotiations," Markarov said. At the  same time, he stressed that Baku would never agree to change the  format of negotiations, since this would mean progress in the process  of recognition of the legal independence of Artsakh.
