NKR president's assistant: Baku's stance divorced from reality is the key obstacle on the way of the Karabakh conflict settlement

  • Tuesday, February 4, 21:57

 Baku's counter-productive stance divorced from reality is the key obstacle on the way of the Karabakh conflict settlement, Karabakh president's assistant, Ashot Beglaryan, said in an interview with "Ditaket" programme.  

"Today president of Azerbaijan lays claims not only to Nagornyy Karabakh but also territories of Armenia. Besides the destructive stance of Baku, there is also a problem  of clash of interests of the influential superpowers. The Karabakh conflict also touched on the interests of Russia, Georgia, Turkey and Iran and attracted attention of the western superpowers chiefly because of availability of geo-strategic interests. And in its turn, this fight of interests hinders development of the negotiating process. However, one should remember that the main reason of the created situation should be looked for not in Washington, Moscow or Paris, but in Baku, which thanks to its maximalist position leads the talks in deadlock", - Beglaryan said. 

He also added that there are issues linked with activity of the OSCE MG co-chairmen, in particular, the groundless distancing from the decisions of the OSCE Budapest summit, according to which the NKR was recognized an independent party to the conflict. He thinks that only returning of the NKR to the negotiating table  and official abandoning force use  will make it possible to reach progress in the negotiating process. "The present settlement process is just consultations and looking for the contact points, as the key party to the conflict - the NKR does not take part in the process", - he emphasized. 

When commenting on tense situation at the line of contact, Beglaryan said that it is not for the first time that the Azerbaijani party implements such actions on the threshold of the talks or immediately after the talks and even during the talks. Their purpose is to demonstrate unwillingness to make any compromises in the Karabakh conflict settlement process. "This is an attempt to impose pressure upon the intermediaries and the Armenian parties to the conflict, so that to cow into submission. In general, they are directed at disruption  of the intermediaries' efforts", - Beglaryan said. 

As the same time, he thinks that in such a way Baku is trying to kill the clock. However, delay of the settlement process thwarts progress of the region. "Another ceasefire regime breaking by Azerbaijan has worsened the situation in the region even more. In fact, Baku confronts the world community and deepens the conflict. The world community should take a grave view of Baku's such actions", - Beglaryan said. 

He also added that today the fragile peace is in fact preserved thanks to the strong Armenian army and the established military and political balance of forces. Unfortunately, there is still no validation mechanism for preservation of this peace, he said.
