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”
There will be no breakthrough in the Karabakh peace negotiations until Nagorno Karabakh is directly involved in the process within the OSCE Minsk Group, says Richard Giragosian, Head of the Center of Regional Studies.
"No matter how many time the parties will meet over a cup of tea or coffee, the given process will be formal unless Artsakh is involved
in the negotiations as a party to the conflict," the analyst told media, Monday.
He thinks that it is not so important what the Armenian and Azerbaijani foreign ministers talked about during their latest meeting. It is much more important that the meeting took place after Baku's mean step. Armenia acted wisely in the given case, Giragosian said.
He expressed regret that the OSCE MG took no relevant steps after Baku pardoned and glorified Safarov, which has discredited the negotiation process. The analyst thinks one should not expect much from the negotiations within the OSCE MG.
