ArmInfo. The Karabakh conflict is a multilayered "cabbage" swing with the complex interactions of different people and institutions formed over the past 30 years. Director of the Caucasus Institute, political expert Alexander Iskandaryan, answering ArmInfo's question expressed a similar opinion about the fears that the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan voiced in an interview with Sputnik-Armenia, in particular around the settlement of the Karabakh conflict.
To recall, Kocharyan accused the current authorities of weakening the negotiating position due to gross mistakes of the Armenian side, in particular because of the statement of the prime minister , Which, in his opinion, led negotiations from the principle of self-determination of peoples to undesirable Armenian republics plane of territorial integrity of states. The second president of Armenia also stated that the "elevator" contacts of Pashinyan and Aliyev actually nullified the very important agreements reached in Vienna and St. Petersburg.
"According to the tradition established in Armenia, if leaders leave politics, than everything that was done in their time was right, and what is being done now is wrong. And Kocharyan's statement must be taken in this context. In addition, he is not just a politician, he is a politician who is in prison and accuses the current government of making mistakes, but this does not mean that it does not make mistakes, but imagine Kocharyan's other behavior in any other situation complicated. He must blame, and representatives of the current government should say that this is all untrue and in fact everything is fine", the expert noted.
According to the expert's estimates, there are certainly problems in the negotiation process, there are mistakes, something is being done better, something is worse, however, the situation is much more complicated than any interview of any person, Iskandaryan explained.
