ArmInfo.All of Azerbaijan's latest actions in Nagorno-Karabakh are part of a larger project. By escalating tension, Baku is trying to finally close the Armenian issue with all its components, and get a land, direct connection with Turkey and move on to Turan. Viktor Nadein- Raevsky, Researcher of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO) Turkologist, said in an interview with ArmInfo.
"Against the background of such goals, Azerbaijan, of course, is making every possible effort to achieve fundamental provisions for itself in the direction of the settlement of the Karabakh conflict. And against this background, the Yerevan's "theses about the era of peace", seem, to put it mildly, not very realistic. Moreover, we see that today in the world such issues, unfortunately, are resolved precisely by military means. Against this background, Armenia's position seems to be incomplete," he said.
According to the expert, the very difficult situation in Ukraine, now around Taiwan, affects other most problematic and complex regions of the Middle East, Europe and, of course, the South Caucasus, giving increased dynamics to geopolitical impulses in these regions. Against such a "military" general background, Nadein-Raevsky considers Moscow's more or less successful management of Ankara's policy through almost constant negotiations an achievement.
According to him, against the background of the current search for new positions in the transforming world in the conditions of the global "military" stage of resolving issues, Baku, in conjunction with Ankara, is working to promote programs towards the implementation of the long-standing project of Great Turan. And this process has already entered an active phase.
"And here it is important to recall that it was Armenia that has always been an obstacle to the implementation of this project. And today Turkey and Azerbaijan are logically trying to take advantage of the truly exceptional opportunities that have opened up after the 44-day war to level this obstacle. Baku's intransigent attitude in relations with Armenia, among other things, comes from here and, of course, is primarily based on Turkish support, which, in turn, is connected with Azerbaijan by common, far-reaching plans, the Turkologist summed up
