ArmInfo.Armenia needs to say goodbye to illusions and hopes for Azerbaijan's aspirations for peace. Member of the National Assembly of Armenia of the 7th convocation, expert in Azerbaijani studies Tatevik Hayrapetyan, expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
"Azerbaijan did not strive for peace from the very beginning, Azerbaijan does not strive for peace now, Azerbaijan will not strive for peace in the future. The current demands of the Azerbaijani leadership in relation to Armenia can be characterized as follows:" we want to take everything possible. " Accordingly, we, in turn, must clearly record this in our own public opinion, and must form the policy of the state, taking into account this reality, "she stressed.
The parliamentarian considers all the latest Azerbaijani inclinations to the borders of Armenia, in particular, the attack on the villages of Gegharkunik and on the positions of the Armenian army, as part of the policy towards strengthening Azerbaijan's victory in the 44-day war. According to her estimates, Aliyev is doing everything possible in this regard, taking advantage of the weakness of Armenia. According to Hayrapetyan, the essence of Aliyev's demands and appetites is the acquisition of the territories of Armenia, without which the further existence of the Armenian state will acquire a formal character.
According to Hayrapetyan, Aliyev quite clearly voiced his own goals and strategy towards Armenia just the other day, saying that Azerbaijan is not going to leave the territory of Armenia. According to her, Baku does not at all consider the current situation on the border as a border dispute, and Aliyev openly declares that "the Azerbaijanis have returned to "their" lands." At the same time, Aliyev is trying to occupy the territory of Armenia for the use of the Nakhichevan corridor and, of course, to finally close the issue of determining the status of Artsakh.
According to Hayrapetyan's estimates,aAll this Aliyev's policy with clear elements of coercion, is generally supported by Ankara. And, besides the fact that it does not contain elements of a peaceful settlement of the problems with Armenia, it also pursues as its goal the destruction of the Armenian statehood. The MP is convinced that exactly the destruction of Armenia as a state means peace for Baku.
"The path to peace cannot lie through murder and expropriation of pieces of territory from a neighboring state. Aliyev's appetites are already reaching Yerevan, and if we allow him, he does not hesitate at all in satisfying them. We cannot allow this, and for this we have all the necessary conditions, including international law. There are internationally recognized borders, Armenia is a member of international organizations, there is a corresponding toolkit that must be applied. In any case, the unleashing of a full- scale war by Azerbaijan against Armenia in the territories of our country is not expected. Today Baku does not have the appropriate opportunities for this. First of all, political, "the parliamentarian summed up."
