Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
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”
Pardoning and glorification of Azerbaijani murderer Ramil Safarov is a strategic mistake of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev from both moral and political
point of view, Gareth Jenkins, expert in recruitment technology and online systems integration, said in an interview with the Romanian Daily Adevarul.
He said that Aliyev's decree has created a negative image of Azerbaijanis in the eyes of the world community.
"World community considers Azerbaijan as a country promoting ethnic crimes. I think that no one doubts that Safarov was pardoned and promoted to higher rank just for killing an Armenian. He did it in peacetime and viciously. Aliyev's statement that Safarov did a service to the Azerbaijani people is insulating first of all for Azerbaijanis," the expert said.
He thinks that military actions are unlikely to resume in the Karabakh conflict zone, because Azerbaijan needs first of all peace to develop its oil industry. Jenkins is sure that Armenians and Azerbaijanis will become witnesses of the final resolution of the Karabakh conflict after several generations.
