Aliev Is Inspired

28 April 06

We hope that the US as a superpower and the OSCE MG cochairman will
assist the NK conflict settlement and it will be possible to make
peace in the region’ , – the President of Azerbaijan said in the
council of foreign relations of the US Carnegie foundation in
Washington. The latter also made some other declarations about
Karabakh. `Karabakh today is the main problem of preventing the
development of Azerbaijan, otherwise we are in excellent conditions,
budget is multiplied, energetic projects are enlarged’, – Aliev has
said. To the question to what concessions Armenia, which won in the
war can go Aliev answered; `First of all, Armenia hasn’t won in the
war, maybe the RA had some privileges in the first battle with the
assistance of other countries. Everybody knows that the Armenians
weren’t able to occupy our territories without the assistance of
Russian army. Besides the war isn’t over yet. I think it’s already the
time for the RA authorities to take a decision and try to make a
decision what will happen in Armenia in 10, 15 years if the conflict
isn’t settled’ , – Aliev said.

The speech of the President of Azerbaijan has turned into obvious
threat; ` The future of Azerbaijan is rather clear. Azerbaijan will be
become a strong, prosperous country with a powerful economy and
society. A country with which is better to become a neighbor’. Peace
is [profitable for both sides. In case of mutual concessions Armenia
will have ways of communications, way to the RF which is `very
important for Armenia’, and will be able to take part in the regional
project. The NK people will get the right of living in peace. He has
produced his version of settlement; `The Armenians who live in
Karabakh have right to have a high level of autonomy round territorial
integrity of Azerbaijan, which we see in many other countries,
including in Europe. Strong political guarantees must be given to them
that the peace will be indestructable in the region’.

By the way the OSCE MG American cochairman Steven Mann has said to the
mass media `it is possible to refuse of attempts of entire and
immediate settlement of the conflict. The opposite approach must act
now, to go ahead step by step and give some difficult problems to the

Summarizing we should mention that Aliev’s these strong declarations
are made in Washington and before the meeting with Bush. It is obvious
that he has been inspired.
