/PanARMENIAN.Net/ After Ilham Aliyev coming to power in October 2003,
a natural pause has appeared in the talks, head of the Department of
Conflictology and Migration of the Institute of Peace and Democracy
Arif Yunusov stated in an interview with PanARMENIAN.Net. In his
words, a situation has appeared that had already taken place, when
after the resignation of Levon Ter-Petrosyan new Armenian President
Robert Kocharian stated the line pursued in the talks by the Armenian
authorities was incorrect and it was necessary to review many aspects
in the negotiation process. “I. Aliyev behaved the same way, stating it
was necessary to start the talks from naught. This at first caused a
painful response of Armenia, however talks started then and they were
even called “the Prague process.” That was what I exactly meant when
stating in one of interviews in Azerbaijan that a new, recurrent and
of course not last stage has outlined in the negotiation process,”
the expert noted. In his words, “The activation is conditioned with
the increase of West pressure upon Armenian and Azeri authorities
and the domestic political situation in the two republics,” the Azeri
political scientist considers.
