Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Azerbaijan is preparing to resume the war against Armenia. This is proved by the threats of Azeri President Ilham Aliyev and the purchase of weapons worth 40 bln AMD, Hrant Bagratyan, ex-Prime Minister of Armenia (1993-96), MP from the Armenian National Congress Faction, said at a press conference on Thursday.
He said that Azerbaijan purchases long-range artillery and drone aircrafts to diminish the human losses in the war, while Armenia has not such an arsenal. Moreover, within the next few months Azerbaijan will shortly complete the project on launching its own satellite in order "to photograph every single machine gun in Armenia".
The politician thinks that the large countries would like to see the final resolution of the Karabakh conflict and creation of a new balance of forces in the region; so, they will not hinder the military actions.
