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”
As soon as Russia reaches sole affect upon Armenia, Nagornyy Karabakh will be immediately passed to Azerbaijan, political expert Stepan Grigoryan said at today's press-conference.
"Russia will give Karabakh to Azerbaijan in exchange to several economic and military preferences, in particular, including beneficial bargains in the oil and gas sphere, prolongation of the Gabali radar station renting terms on the conditions profitable for Moscow, deployment of the Russian peace-making forces at the Azerbaijan-Iran border. Ar present it is very much important to preserve the influence of several force centers in the republic, i.e. it is beneficial for Armenia to simultaneously cooperate with European Union and the USA and Russia", - Grigoryan said.
At the same time, he emphasized that one must not let domination of one foreign policy orientation. He also added that if Yerevan refuses the idea of complementarity, it will lead to serious losses. In this context, Armenia already has a bitter experience - the Kars and Moscow treaties of 1921, when the bolsheviks having established their power in Armenia and "becoming friends" with Ataturk, gave native territories of Armenia, Kars, Ardagan and Surmalu region, to Turkey.
