Tension in Karabakh: West-Russia conflict, or… |


“The question now is: Armenia Will he go to the West with Zangezur or without Zangezur?”

Azerbaijan Armenia It constantly manipulates the presence of its armed forces in Nagorno-Karabakh. I officially declare that in Nagorno-Karabakh Armenia has no military personnel.”

The Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan of the government Azerbaijan in his speech at the meeting about the operation of the army on August 3 said.

Prime Minister said that November 9, 2020No matter how much the tripartite statement dated 2008 is criticized, it guarantees the important security of Nagorno-Karabakh:

“2020The Nagorno-Karabakh region was defined by the statement of However Azerbaijan still tries to deny it and says that Nagorno-Karabakh does not exist. By the way, Azerbaijan such statements are a gross violation of the tripartite statement.

Pashinyan believes that defining the line of contact with the November 9 statement was the second important point:

“The third was the Lachin corridor, which provides the connection between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia. In fact, Azerbaijan What they are doing today is against what I have listed. We expect that Russian peacekeeping forces, as stipulated in the tripartite declaration To Azerbaijan will not allow to undermine these fundamental institutions.

“Azerbaijan always talks about the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army and why it is deployed along the contact line. If Russia if they guarantee the integrity of the peacekeeping forces and the Azerbaijan contact line, it seems to me that the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army will not need combat duty,” he said.

“We are ready to use force in our territory if there is no result of negotiations”

Former Foreign Minister Tofig Zulfugarov tells Meydan TV that the Prime Minister of Armenia 10 misrepresents the November document:

“Azerbaijan said that 3 points in the document have not been resolved. First, the presence of Armenian army units in Karabakh. Pashinyan Although he denied it, the Deputy Minister of Defense of Armenia soldier in the meeting with his parents, he said that there are those who are involved in the service based on the agreement. Second, Russian peacekeepers have arrived in the region to ensure security. That is, to ensure security, the Armenian army or something military there is no agreement that the compounds are there either. The third issue concerns Zangezur. In spite of what I have listed, Armenia is consistently excluded from both the peace process and 10 abandons November obligations. “Azerbaijan, after turning to a mediator for a while, struck anywhere.”

“The military in the region cannot perform any function as they have lost their importance. Therefore, they should leave the area immediately, and the illegal gangs should also be disarmed,” added Tofig Zulfugarov.

According to him, Baku On July 3, with the “Revenge” operation, he demonstrated his will to fully restore territorial integrity and sovereignty:

“We are ready to use force in our territory if there is no result of the negotiations that have been held for some time and this will continue. We are talking about the operation against terrorists.”

According to Tofig Zulfugarov, recent events in the West and Russia is taking place against the background of the transfer of the conflict to the territory of Armenia:

“A simple example, USA Following the visit of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director William Burns to Yerevan Russia The head of the Foreign Intelligence Service Sergey Naryshkin also went there. It is clear that Armenia is taking advantage of the weakening of Russia political the elite and society of the west to save themselves way they consider it important to choose. Because only with this they can bring investments to the country. Currently, they have no expectations from Russia. Moscow does not like this. Perhaps, Armenia is not so important for Russia. But “Zangazur Corridor” is of strategic importance for them. Because this corridor opens the way to Iran and Turkey. The current question is, will Armenia go to the West with Zangezur or without Zangezur?”

“The status quo that existed for 30 years has been destroyed, with another one substitute done”

Political commentator Rauf Mirgadirov said in Pashinyan’s statement that some points are justified and some are unfounded:

“For example, what the Prime Minister said about the existence of the contact line is valid. If we are talking about the deployment of peacekeeping forces on the contact line, then there are two sides.”

Mirgadirov believes that Pashinyan’s statement that Armenian troops are not stationed in the region is a great hypocrisy:

“Because in Armenia for a long time military during the draft, young people were sent to Karabakh. Even the Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia in September military announced that all his forces would be withdrawn. Pashinyan is talking about Nagorno-Karabakh, however 10 most of Nagorno-Karabakh until the November statement free was done. Even if we take it as a state institution, Nagorno-Karabakh, controlled by the separatists, no longer existed.”

“If we go a little further into history, it was not even in the borders of the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Province. Because Shusha, Hadrud and other areas Azerbaijan contained. Therefore, it is not true that Pashinyan presented Karabakh as an institution, because this institution did not exist. First, the status quo that existed for 30 years has been destroyed, with another substitute was done. Finally, the existence of the Nagorno-Karabakh separatist organization is not confirmed,” he said.

Political the commentator noted that 2020In the November statement of 2011, there is a clause for the construction of a new road outside Lachin within 2 years:

“Thus, after 3 months, the Lachin corridor should become part of Azerbaijan. But the Minister of Transport of Armenia said that the new road will be ready by the spring of next year. Therefore, Armenia cannot fulfill its obligations. If the road is not ready on time, an additional agreement is signed to indicate the new deadline. In this regard, Armenia should take the initiative.”

“Azerbaijan should be more concerned about the operation regulations of the new road. That is, the current norms do not meet the interests of Azerbaijan. because Baku cannot control the flow of goods and people passing through it. In fact, this is formally the responsibility of Russian peacekeepers, but as a state they are not strictly responsible. They can say that they did not see something. In this sense, a different control mechanism should be introduced,” Mirgadirov said.

Azerbaijan Ministry of Defence accused the other side of the military operations in Karabakh on August 3.

The Ministry emphasized that illegal Armenian armed groups in the territory of Azerbaijan, where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily stationed, grossly violated the provisions of the Statement dated November 10, 2020.

In the statement, the retaliatory measures of the Azerbaijani army were called “Revenge” operation.

It is reported that as a result of the “Revenge” retaliatory operation carried out by the Azerbaijani army, the Kyrgyz height, as well as Saribaba along the Karabakh ridge of the Lesser Caucasus mountain range and a number of other important judge heights are under control.
