General: Armenian armed forces mull retaliatory attack on Azerbaijani armed forces

  • by Ashot Safaryan

  • Tuesday, June 10, 16:08

 The Armenian armed forces are preparing a retaliatory attack on Azerbaijan's armed forces, retired Major General Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan told RFE/RL Armenian Service. "I have relevant information," he said.

To recall, two Armenian soldiers, Andranik Yegoyan (26) and Boris Gasparyan (22) were killed by the shots fired from the Azerbaijani armed forces on the border with Nakhijevan.  The tragic incident has got a wide public response. "The growing tension is pregnant with heavy consequences for Azerbaijan," Defense Minister of Armenia Seyran Ohanyan told OSCE CiO PR Andrzej Kasprzyk on the day following the incident.

"If our forces fail to make retaliatory actions as soon as possible, Azerbaijan will think that we have got weaker.  We need to make tangible blows. It is not just anticipation. I know for sure that such a blow is being prepared," Ter-Tadevosyan said.

According to the Artsakh War Hero, Azerbaijan buys weapons from Russia and breaches ceasefire to exert pressure on Armenia and the world community and make them go on concessions in the negotiations with Baku.

"They do not seek to unleash war. Considering Azerbaijan's commitments and the international energy projects for the coming years, as well as Armenia's arms ad the balance of power, the Armenian-Russian treaties, and the negative approach of the US, EU and Iran to any attempt to change the status quo in the region by force, I don't think that Baku seeks to unleash war," the retired general said.  

He is sure that Azerbaijan has no appropriate resources to change the balance of power in the South Caucasus on its own. Unleashing a war in the region where the superpowers have interests in would mean that it ignores their interests and seeks to change the situation, he said.
