The provoking information from the Armenian-Azerbaijani line of contact is addressed to the West, as it makes it possible to frighten the West, Azerbaijani political expert, Arif Yunusov, told Arminfo correspondent when commenting on the reasons skirmish and sabotage attacks at the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.
"As soon as Europe and the USA make the pressure upon Azerbaijan stronger, similar processes start happening. The head of the Azerbaijani delegation to PACE, Samed Seidov, has recently reminded European deputies of "the threat which Azerbaijan comes across with every day at the front line, where women and children are killed", - he said. Yunusov is confident that nobody in Europe is aware of the fact that ceasefire regime is being broken for 20 years. Meanwhile, both Azerbaijanis as well as Armenians have become so much accustomed to the sniper war and death of people from both sides, that they do not pay attention to it, he said.
The situation is "corrected" by Azerbaijani mass media which from time to time give information about "sharp worsening of the situation at the line of contact". After that, the Azerbaijani and Armenian pro-government mass media fan hysteria. "As a rule, it happens the time when the authorities need and coincides with certain processes within the country or at the world arena. "I can say for sure that today it is clear to everybody that no war around Karabakh will happen in the near future. However, the authorities cannot but use sabotage attacks and artificial worsening of the situation in the sphere of propaganda", - Yunusov concluded.
