Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan: Oil dollars and rich allies encourage Baku, but it still has no capacities for new war

The local tensions on the Armenian-Azeri border and the Nagorno-Karabakh- Azeri contact line will hardly cause a new war, hero of the Nagorno-Karabakh war, the commander of the Shushi liberation operation Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan told ArmInfo on Monday. 

 

He said that the Azeris are not ready for a new war. "Oil dollars and rich allies encourage them but they still have no capacities for starting a war. Just a month ago there was a pretext for a new war:  the Armenians captured a high point in Sisian region but the Azeris did nothing in response.  Everybody is aware that if a new war starts, it will involve not only Armenia and Azerbaijan but also the great powers and Turkey. I don't think anybody needs such a thing today," Ter-Tadevosyan said.

 

He believes that special systems must be installed on the contract line to record who and when broke the cease-fire regime. "Armenia cannot afford such systems. Azerbaijan will gain nothing from them.  So, it is the world community who must do something to this end," Ter-Tadevosyan said.

 

He is sure that the OSCE Minsk Group will not make any statement on the last Azeri raid in Karvachar. "Even if they make a statement it will be addressed to both parties. They are unwilling to interfere in the conflict. They want the parties to come to terms on their own.  But considering the existing contradictions, this is not something we can expect in the near future," Ter-Tadevosyan said.
