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”
Azerbaijan's introducing the issue of resettlement of Syrian Armenians in the security zone around Nagorno-Karabakh in the agenda of the meeting with the OSCE Minsk Group co- chairs is an attempt to divert attention from the main content of the Karabakh problem, Rouben Safrastyan, Director of the Oriental Studies Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia, told ArmInfo.
"First of all, the matter concerns a very small number of people; moreover, the given actions have a humanitarian nature and attaching a political context to this issue can be qualified as Azerbaijan's attempt to influence the peace process in order to divert attention from its aggressive policy", the expert said.
He also stressed that one should not expect any active steps in the peace process, as the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries and the EU are not interested in it yet. "One should expect nothing from the Jan 28 meeting of the Armenian and Azerbaijani foreign ministers with the mediators in Paris", he said.
To note, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said that at the Jan 28 meeting in Paris he will raise the issue of resettlement of Syrian Armenians in the security zone around Nagorno-Karabakh.
