ArmInfo.The presence of the Turkish factor in the current hostilities in Artsakh makes it possible to speak of Israeli interests. A similar opinion was expressed to ArmInfo by Israeli public figure, political scientist Avigdor Eskin.
"Turkey has once again made a completely extravagant statement on the situation. A statement which reflects the hysteria with which Recep Erdogan attacked Israel at the UN several days ago. No one needs the strengthening of Turkish positions in the region. Meanwhile, the events in Artsakh are an opportunity for such a strengthening. Considering the oil pipeline, given the statements about the possibility of Turkey's withdrawal from Syria in exchange for something. There are a lot of different factors around the Turkish theme, " he stressed.
In general, the Turks, according to the political scientist, have spoiled relations with everyone, including the United States. Erdogan is losing in Libya, Syria, Iraq, he is losing in Turkey to the Kurds. It is losing in its own economy, while the lira continues to depreciate. Against this background, Eskin considers it necessary to draw attention to Turkey's dangerous striving for revanchism. At the same time, Israel, in his opinion, should not and will not interfere in other people's conflicts. This is the golden rule of Israel's public policy. Nevertheless, he is convinced that the strengthening of Turkey in the South Caucasus will not be beneficial for Israel as well. First of all, given the fact that Turkey has turned into a strategic enemy for Israel. Israeli sources, he said, confirm the fact of sending to Azerbaijan a certain number of terrorist mercenaries who fought in Syria for many years. However, there is no exact information about their number and involvement in the hostilities against Artsakh.
"This is very important information, indicating very dangerous tendencies in Turkish policy towards the South Caucasus. It cannot be ruled out that, having lost in Libya and failing to do anything with regard to Greece, especially after the latter was supported by France and Israel, Turkey may try to spill over to the East. This should not be allowed and Turkey must be curbed here too. The only hope is Moscow, that it will understand that the conflict can be resolved with the greater participation of Russia. Otherwise, the current instability, the current heat will go too far. An early ceasefire is possible only with the participation of Russia. Let's hope that will happen, " Eskin summed up.
