Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
Due to Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev's rhetoric, Azerbaijan resembles a dog that barks but does not bite, Richard Giragosian, Director of the Regional Studies Center (RSC), said at a press conference in Yerevan on Monday.
The analyst qualifies Azerbaijan as a weak and unpredictable state, which is proved by the release of the murderer Ramil Safarov. Giragosian welcomes the defensive strategy of Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, who speaks of the danger of resumption of military actions more often.
He said that Serzh Sargsyan addresses clear messages to the international community, warning of possible aggression by Azerbaijan.
As regards the visit of the parliamentary delegation of Uruguay to Nagorno-Karabakh, Giragosian stressed that it was neither the first not the last visit of the kind. A delegation from Australia will be next. Democracy in Nagorno-Karabakh is rapidly developing, and the international community cannot ignore this process, he said.
