Even though experts do not expect a new war in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia must be always ready for it, political expert Levon Shirinyan told journalists on Saturday.
He said that the recurring incidents on the contact line may trigger a new war. "We don't know what the Azeri authorities are thinking about, so, we must be ready for the worse. As a matter of fact, the war is already in progress," the expert said.
He advises Armenia to follow Israel's example and to create a military zone along the contact line. "We need a multi-layer defense. Our soldiers are excellent fighters, but we must not forget that we have nowhere to retreat. We also need a clear plan of action to be able to win quickly should the war resume," the expert said.
