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”
The conflict in Syria is multi-layer and has gone beyond the domestic political interests of that country, says Kiro Manoyan, Head of ARFD Bureau's Hay Dat and Political Affairs Office.
He told media, Monday that external forces pursue their own interests in the Middle East. He believes that influence of external forces on the Syrian political crisis was and will be veiled. Manoyan forecasts that the Syrian conflict will result in establishment of Kurdish autonomy in the territory of that country, which is the key issue official Ankara is concerned about. These issues will be on agenda of U.S. Secretary of State Clinton's upcoming visit to Turkey.
As for the probability of military actions against Iran, Manoyan said that the West has realized long ago that Iran is neither Libya nor Afghanistan.
