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”
Hungary's disgraceful with Azerbaijan has undermined the European Union's reputation but this will not affect our cooperation with Europe, Turkologist Ruben Melkonyan said in an interview with ArmInfo when asked to comment of Hungary's decision to extradite murderer Ramil Safarov to Azerbaijan.
He believes that now that Azerbaijan has shown its true face, the OSCE Minsk Group should change its policy as it is already clear who is who in the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process.
Melkonyan said that Russia's silence may disappoint the Armenians. "The Russians have no right not to condemn the Azeris' meanness. On the other hand, they have their own interests in the region and are a the OSCE MG co-chair, so, they may just be unwilling to spoil their relations with Azerbaijan," the expert said.
