Analyst: Pashinyan`s statement on the status of Artsakh is a  confirmation that "Politics is the art of the possible"

ArmInfo.The latest statement by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the status of Artsakh is another confirmation of the well-known words of Otto von Bismarck "Politics is the art of the possible." Expert of the Armenian Institute of  International Relations and Security David Stepanyan expressed a  similar opinion to ArmInfo.

On June 15, Pashinyan stated in the Armenian parliament that the  status of Artsakh is not a goal itself, but a means of ensuring the  security of Artsakh Armenians. "If in the past the concept of the  Armenian side of the settlement of the Nagorno- Karabakh conflict was  based on the status of Nagorno-Karabakh, from which the rights and  security guarantees of the population of Karabakh were based, now  rights and security are the basis from which the issue of status  already arises. In other words, we state that the status is not a  goal itself in this situation, but a means of ensuring the security,  rights and freedoms of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh. This is  understandable to the international community, makes our goals, the  essence of the Nagorno-Karabakh problem more understandable," the  prime minister said.

"Pashinyan said everything almost openly. Having no political  opportunity to raise the status issue in the current negotiation  process with Azerbaijan, Yerevan focuses on ensuring the security and  rights of the people of Artsakh, including the right to life. There  are only two ways to guarantee them. A) Indefinite preservation the  current status quo - the presence of Russian peacekeepers in Artsakh.   C) Granting Artsakh de facto independence from Aliyev's Azerbaijan,  which threatens this very right to life," he stressed.

Causing the absence of a political opportunity for Armenia to  directly demand independence for Artsakh, primarily on the basis of  the results of the 44-day aggression of Azerbaijan and Turkey,  Stepanyan noted that in this case, the reference to the security and  rights of the Artsakh people is, in fact, uncontested for Yerevan.   Stepanyan noted that, the lack of political opportunity for Armenia  to directly put forward a demand for the independence of Artsakh,  first of all, due to the results of the 44-day aggression of  Azerbaijan and Turkey, according to him in this case, referring to  the security and rights of the people of Artsakh, in fact, has no  alternative for Yerevan.  

As Stepanyan noted, the lack of a political opportunity for Armenia  to directly put forward a demand for the independence of Artsakh,  first of all, is connected with the results of the 44-day aggression  of Azerbaijan and Turkey,  and according to him, in this case,  Yerevan, in fact, has no alternative but to refer to the security and  rights of the people of Artsakh.  Because Yerevan's only alternative  is to establish vertical relations between Baku and Stepanakert,  which, according to his forecasts, will end with the inevitable  "Nakhijevanization" of Artsakh. And Baku understands this very well.  That is why for many years they diligently avoided in negotiations at  any level, including the public one, the mere mention of the fate of  the Nakhichevan Armenians, who had undergone many years of ethnic  cleansing.  " Fortunately, apparently, today, they finally began to  realize it in Yerevan, hence the rejection of the Kocharyan-Sargsyan  policy and the entry into the notorious policy of the art of the  possible. 

The subsequent implementation of which will allow the application of  the principle of international law "remedial secessions" in Artsakh  in the future. This is dictated by the current geopolitical  realities, this is dictated by the language the West speaks today,  this is dictated by the interests of the Armenian nation," Stepanyan  summed up.
