Armenian political expert: Outbreak of war in our region is low probable due to situation in Ukraine and Syria

 An outbreak of war in our region is low probable to the situation in Ukraine and Syria, Armenian political expert Alexander Manasyan said at today's press conference.

In the meantime, Manasyan pointed at the insufficient diplomatic efforts of Armenia in the Karabakh peace process. "We should state within international structures that one should not sell weapons to the aggressive country, which uses aggressive militaristic rhetoric", he stressed when commenting on the supplies of Russian military hardware to Azerbaijan.  

In this case, he said, one can point at the Russian traditional ambiguity when Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov speaks of strategic partnership with Russia during his visits to Armenia and Azerbaijan. "We should only hope that Russia will supply Armenia with equal military hardware", said Manasyan.   

To recall, Russia keeps intensively supplying Azerbaijan with military hardware. It was reported in May 2014 that Azerbaijan purchased TOS-1A heavy flamethrower systems and T- 90 armored vehicles from Russia. Moscow and Baku have also an agreement on supply of Mi-35 strike helicopters. In an interview to the Argentine La Nacion daily newspaper, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said that Armenian people are very much concerned with the fact that Armenia's strategic ally Russia is selling weapons to Azerbaijan.
