ArmInfo.Now several major political players are engaged in helping Azerbaijan. Thus, Turkey is openly on the side of Baku, and there is evidence of cooperation between Azerbaijan and Tel Aviv. This was stated by the well-known conflictologist and orientalist Boris Podoprigora in his commentary to "PolitExpert" about the situation around the Nagorno-Karabkh military conflict.
"The information that Azerbaijan received military-technical assistance from Israel is semi-official, but inspires confidence. It says a lot. This means that there was a go-ahead from the US. In my opinion, Israel does not help anyone if the US does not make such a decision. will approve, "the political scientist said. According to him, at the moment Israel is one of the main suppliers of weapons for Azerbaijan. The Baku army has ATMOS 2000 artillery units, Spike anti-tank missile systems, LAR-160 multiple launch rocket systems, Aerostar drones and other weapon systems in its arsenal. In return, Tel Aviv receives oil and gas.
From this, the expert believes, the following factor arises, making the conflict regional: Iran has got in between all the countries involved in the conflict, which is trying with all its might to maintain neutrality, having tense relations with Turkey and Israel. Podoprigora notes that Tehran traditionally views such political movements as provocations against the Iranian regime.
Boris Podoprigora believes that Russia in the history of Karabakh should act as a part of a serious political force. In his opinion, this contested territory should be given international status as a temporary enclave. And Moscow and other major world players should act as its guarantors. There is no other way out, in his opinion. "Well, or wait until the fighting fervor, and at the same time the armament of the sides, will decrease so much that it will not be before the war. But I am afraid that this is not the case, because Turkey is quite openly on the side of Azerbaijan. This is the whole complexity of the situation. I do not exclude that several factors were deliberately compressed: Belarusian, our internal problems and added the factor of the South Caucasus. I am afraid that it may not find any acceptable solution in the foreseeable future, "the orientalist believes. However, the expert is sure that there are preconditions for assigning a special status to Karabakh. Russian and French Presidents Vladimir Putin and Emmanuel Macron expressed grave concern over the ongoing escalation of the Karabakh conflict between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces. The leaders of the countries exchanged views on this issue during a telephone conversation. They also reiterated their calls for the return of peace to this territory.
