Politician: Nobody in Armenia is ready to give up control over the  "corridor" today, including Pashinyan

ArmInfo. Nobody in Armenia, including Nikol Pashinyan, is ready to surrender control over the "corridor" that Ilham Aliyev so consistently and fiercely demands.  The Chairman of the Conservative Party of Armenia Mikael Hayrapetyan  expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.

"With a high degree of probability, I can assume that in reality  Moscow gave the Turks and Azerbaijanis somewhat greater promises than  was recorded in the trilateral statement of November 9 last year. And  these promises by Russia have not yet been fulfilled, although Moscow  is striving to do so. And, apparently, we are talking about  transferring control over the so-called "Zangezur Corridor",  he  noted.

According to the politician, everyone needs this corridor, including,  in principle, Armenia itself. The whole question, in his opinion,  rests on the demands of Baku and Ankara on the transfer of control  over this corridor by Armenia. And here a new question arises - will  this control be exercised by the Russians or by the Turks? Or will it  be controlled by the Azerbaijanis in general? And this leads to the  final question: will Armenia lose sovereignty over the territories  through which the proposed corridor will pass?  According to  Hayrapetyan, taking into account the prospect of the exodus of the  population of Agarak and even Meghri in the event that control over  the corridor is transferred to any foreign forces, even the current  Prime Minister Pashinyan does not dare to sign such a document today.   That gives rise to more and more attempts to put pressure on Armenia,  which results in destructive interference in the pre-election  processes and in the very process of early parliamentary elections in  the country.

Such attempts by external actors interested in the corridor,  according to the politician's forecasts, are fraught with new  challenges and problems. In the period of actual anarchy in Armenia -  before the formation of a new parliament and government, anything is  possible. Moreover, this whole situation will have the most negative  impact on the borders of Armenia. According to Hayrapetyan's  estimates, having secured its own military presence in Artsakh at the  expense of Armenia, now Moscow is trying to draw Azerbaijan into its  own integration projects. Again, at the expense of Armenia.

It was this price that Aliyev, according to Hayrapetyan, demanded  from Moscow for membership in the EAEU. And according to his  forecasts, if all the conditions of the Russian-Turkish agreements  are fulfilled, including the creation of the notorious corridor,  Aliyev will no longer oppose Azerbaijan's membership in the EAEU. At  the same time, according to the politician, if suddenly Russia and  Turkey still do not agree, Azerbaijan is just a puppet here,  everything is possible, the opposite scenario is also possible.

"But all these are problems of Azerbaijan. Our problem is that having  paid a huge price for all these projects, we received absolutely  nothing. Georgia in 2008 also paid with Abkhazia and South Ossetia,  but in return Georgia received freedom. It gained freedom and the  doors to the civilized world are open before it. That is why, having  paid with Artsakh and most importantly with thousands of lives,  Armenia had to immediately initiate withdrawal from the same CSTO,  leaving the zone of Russian influence, Hayrapetyan summed up.
