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”
"The October 24 decision of the Upper House of the South New Wales
Parliament, Australia, is a notification for the world community and
OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs that to achieve a fair resolution of the
Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict and durable peace in the conflict zone, it
is necessary to recognize the Nagorno Karabakh Republic and the
Karabakh people's right to self- determination, as well as to shift away
from the policy of double standards," David Karabekyan, an independent
analyst from Karabakh, told ArmInfo.
He said that the given decision is especially important for it was adopted in the light of stagnating peace process and sharp statements by the two parties' officials that have become more frequent after extradition and pardon of Azerbaijani murderer Ramil Safarov. "NKR was recognized by a state that belongs to Western civilization and was once an English colony. Moreover, the Australian authorities 'did not recognize the decision illegal' as analysts say. The largest state of Australia came out for development of friendly relations with Nagorno Karabakh. All this shows that the Western world is making sure that it is necessary to liquidate displays of colonialism with regard to the Karabakh republic," Karabekyan said.
