Levon Ter-Petrosyan: The reaction of the Armenian party at the Azerbaijani invasions is quite guarded and inadequate

  • by Marianna Mkrtchyan

The reaction of the Armenian party at the Azerbaijani invasions is quite guarded and inadequate, the first president of Armenia Levon Ter-Petrosyan said in an interview with ILur.am, when commenting on growth of tension at the Armenian-Azerbaijani border and at the line of contact between the armed forces of Karabakh and Azerbaijan. 

The reason of that is that the Armenian party scares giving an adequate response, as it takes into account the fact that as a result of adequate actions the situation may run out of control and mutual firing at the border may result if not in the beginning of the battle actions, but at least, in more dangerous worsening of the situation. 

On the other hand, Ter-Petrosyan thinks that restraint of the Armenian party is letting off the leash of Azerbaijan, which by using the situation, has been trying to worsen the situation at the border area. 

'For this reason, the authorities of Armenia are in front of the dilemma, the settlement of which requires great efforts and an absolute political ready wit. I think that Azerbaijan's aggressive actions are conditioned, on the one hand, by distrust of the West in Armenia since failure of the Association Agreement with Europe, and on the other hand, by Armenia's unclear status in the Eurasian Economic Union", - he said.  

He also added that many people waiting for positive progress in the Karabakh settlement, link their hope with the meeting between presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan, Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev in Paris , in which President of France Francois Hollande will also take part. "The fact that the heads of the conflicting states meet, is positive. As for the meeting initiated by Hollande, it is hard to say, what results it can give. I think that a certain atmosphere of mutual understanding may be created", - he said. 

In this context, Ter-Petrosyan thinks that even if Hollande-Sergsyan-Aliyev meeting providing no serious progress in the negotiating process for settlement of the conflict, will promote decrease of tension at the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, the given meeting may be considered to be quite satisfactory.
