ArmInfo.Azerbaijan's pressure on Armenia will only increase over time, but the likelihood of a large-scale war is low. MP from the "I have honor" faction Tigran Abrahamyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
" Baku's main goal of increasing the degree of pressure through armed provocations and murders on the border is to gain the corridor they longed for through the territory of Armenia. But today I see only the possibility of the risk of continuing local clashes. Azerbaijan has been preparing for its current stage for a long time, actively spreading misinformation about violations of the regime truce that allegedly took place by the Armenian side," he said.
According to the oppositionist, in order to achieve its goal, Baku forced Yerevan to withdraw the last conscript soldiers from Artsakh ahead of time. Azerbaijan also forced Armenia to agree to the construction of the Armenian section of the Tegh-Kornidzor road, alternative to the Lachin corridor. And although no construction work has been completed there, it turns out that even now citizens will have to move on the ground to travel to Artsakh.
The parliamentarian is convinced that by putting forward such humiliating demands for the Armenian leadership, Baku is preparing the ground for new demands in the future. And he will receive exactly as much as Yerevan will be ready to give up. Accordingly, according to his forecasts, the current tension will last until Armenia fulfills all the demands of Azerbaijan.
"Baku has a clear program of action for the final de-Armenization of Artsakh in the next decade. While the current government of Armenia, apparently, is ready to make concessions, surrender territories, etc. However, instead of doing it peacefully , it prefers to do this under the guise of local clashes. Considering that having lost Artsakh, Armenia will become even more defenseless, our task is to prevent behind-the- scenes agreements around Artsakh. Since the loss of Artsakh, the loss of a combat-ready army will lead us to the loss of statehood," Abramyan summed up.
