Expert: Azerbaijan will continue to use the Karabakh negotiations as  an instrument, but not for settlement, but for something else

ArmInfo.The Karabakh conflict is not at all in a stage in which we can expect some serious changes. Director of the Caucasus Institute, political expert Alexander  Iskandaryan stated this at a press conference on November 11.  According to him, the strategy of Azerbaijan is to conduct  negotiations and at the same time put pressure on the Armenian side  with violence at the border.

<In general, the situation will remain approximate as it is now. That  is, the Minsk process will exist, meetings will be held at one or  another level, and at the same time I can't say that violence at the  borders will stop, "Iskandaryan explained.

According to the political scientist, Azerbaijan has absolutely no  reason to agree to include Artsakh in the negotiation process, and  this, according to Iskandaryan, is a direct indicator that Azerbaijan  is not interested in a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

<Azerbaijan needs to continue to use negotiations as an instrument,  but not for settlement, but for something else. If Azerbaijan really  wanted to solve the problem, it would itself demand that Artsakh be  included in these processes in one form or another. But since this  desire is actually not there, then it becomes impossible to imagine  it. Azerbaijan does not want to resolve the Karabakh conflict by  consensus>, the expert believes.

Iskandaryan also noted that Azerbaijan is trying to put pressure on  Armenia so that Armenia and Artsakh agree on a solution that is  beneficial to Azerbaijan by building up its power or talking about  building up power or by actually acquiring more tools.

<That is, they want to force the Armenians to take their version of  the decision by combining the political pressure of world structures  and pressure on the Contact Line using the weapons that exist today.  However, neither of them succeeds,> the political scientist  concluded.
