EXPERT MIKHAIL ALEXANDROV: "POSSIBILITY OF AZERBAIJAN’S MILITARY VICTORY OVER ARMENIA IS ABSENT BOTH FOR EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL REASONS"
July 16 2008
Chief of the Caucasus Department of the CIS states Institute Mikhail
Alexandrov considers that the soonest resolution of Nagorno Karabakh
conflict is impossible.
"The situation will remain frozen for a long time. As the succession of
Armenian external political course continues, no principal concessions
on the issues of Nagorno Karabakh conflict are expected", said he at
the Novosti International press center in Yerevan.
On the other side, the expert noted that possibility of Azerbaijan’s
military victory over Armenia is absent both for external and internal
reasons, therefore, the conflict will remain unsettled for long.
According to the expert, Armenian society should accept it and live
in this situation calmly. "It is impossible to get everything you want
including annul blockade and get Nagorno Karabakh", said Alexandrov.
The expert said it is necessary to wait when global geopolitical
processes, for example, economic crisis in the West and possible
undermining of world hegemony of the United States in the result of
this crisis, will lead to global geopolitical progress, US withdrawal
from Eurasia and collapse of the NATO bloc.
"The geopolitical situation in the region will change after it and
it will be possible to settle Nagorno Karabakh issue on the basis of
the right of nations for self-determination", said Alexandrov.
