Azerbaijan is playing cat and mouse game with Armenia and the world -  analyst

Azerbaijan is playing cat and mouse game with Armenia and the world -  analyst

ArmInfo.  While we are arguing on the streets and in government corridors about the conditions under which the Armenian state should be restored within the borders of the former USSR,  Azerbaijan has decided to take a detour and question the very  legitimacy of the Republic of Armenia.  Famous Armenian political  analyst Manvel Sargsyan expressed such an opinion on his Facebook  page.

The leadership of Armenia, by involving Azerbaijan in the process of  border demarcation through preliminary territorial concessions, hopes  that it will establish a strong "legitimate" fence against anyone  entering its territory. But, as it turns out, once again the  ingenuity of the opponent is underestimated. There is no  understanding that the border issue for Azerbaijan is simply a method  to force Armenia to make further concessions on more serious issues.  Our "dreamers of peace", of course, are far from understanding such  things.

The analyst briefly tried to explain the situation. In his opinion,  Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, during the reception of a  delegation led by the OSCE Chair-in-Office on May 14, stated that the  Armenian- Azerbaijani conflict was already a thing of history and it  no longer exists, and said that the time had come to abolish the OSCE  Minsk Group and all related institutions.

 The Azerbaijani side has raised this issue, and there is no reason  why the Armenian side would not agree to this. At the same time,  Aliyev emphasized that Azerbaijan, thanks to its will and strength,  put an end to the 'occupation', ensuring territorial integrity and  sovereignty in accordance with the norms and principles of  international law and the UN Charter.

As Sargsyan noted, not only the OSCE, but also Armenian "advanced"  eggheaded persons, of course, will internally agree with Aliyev.  Like, let him close everything from the past and let's go to a  "peaceful future". Those in the leadership of Armenia thought exactly  the same way, who in 1991 recognized Artsakh as part of Azerbaijan  with the hope that after that there would be no need to fight. But  then they received punishment for their naivety - a brutal war. And  only after that they realized that ceding rights to the enemy is not  so harmless, you can get a terrible blow in return.

And why does Aliyev want to shut down the activities of the OSCE  Minsk Group? Is it just to sum up the story?, the analyst asks. " By  the way, for the first time he addressed this proposal to the OSCE  Secretary in Munich. Why such persistence? Have the Armenian  authorities thought about this? Apparently, not entirely, since  during a conversation with the same OSCE chairman in Yerevan they  only talked about how diligent they are and how carefully they carry  out the demarcation and build peace and democracy. They didn't  understand that completely different intrigues were being woven  against them - on the border, Azerbaijan was just playing cat and  mouse with Armenia and the world. And again, it seems to our  philistines that delimitation is of some value for Azerbaijan - they  cannot understand that this is just an effective mechanism for  forcing Armenia to unconditionally surrender by admitting its guilt  in the 'occupation' of foreign territories. With the termination of  the Minsk Group's activities, a way is opened for Azerbaijan to  declare Armenia an 'occupier' and further isolate and destroy the  Armenian state.

The analyst believes that with this Azerbaijan will close the entire  arsenal of political and legal facts about its gross violation of  international law and the aggression of 1992. It will close the  history of causing huge tragedy to people. Armenia will ultimately  remain an 'aggressor and occupier'.

Azerbaijan has been working in this direction for several years. Both  the trial and the reparations required are announced. And our  townspeople have no idea about this arsenal of accusations against  Azerbaijan, which are preserved by the 30-year history of attempts to  determine the status of Artsakh in the international format of the  CSCE/OSCE Minsk Group. Apparently, the subsequent demands of  Azerbaijan will sober up many actors- it was not for nothing that  Azerbaijan declared that the basic principle of settling relations  with Armenia would be its demands, and not the Alma-Ata Declaration.  Perhaps not everyone is completely clear about the essence of this  dangerous story, Manvel Sargsyan noted.
