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”
Russia's Foreign Ministry will undoubtedly react at extradition of Ramil Safarov and his pardoning by president of Azerbaijan, Russian political expert, Andrey Areshev, told Arminfo correspondent.
Director of the Centre for Regional Studies, Richard Giragossian, said at today's press-conference that Moscow's silence regarding the situation with Safarov is strange. He also added that being Armenia's strategical partner Moscow did not react at the events which are a direct result of the anti-Armenian hysteria, and finally are a threat to security of Armenia.
Areshev said it is early to make conclusions about the Armenian-Russian relations. "I think Moscow will make an official statement on the event... Russia's Foreign Ministry did not immediately react. It did not have an opportunity to get all the needed information because of the days off", - Areshev said.
He thinks that the reaction of the American party was rather operative and the Americans played correctly. "However, the military and technical cooperation between Washington and Baku will not suffer because of it. The statement by US Department of State and Barack Obama's administration will not negatively affect close military and political and economic cooperation with Azerbaijan, and in general, the role of Azerbaijan which the Americans shared in their anti-Iranian programmes", - Areshev concluded.
