GEORGY VANYAN: "RESOLUTION OF THE CONFLICT WITH AZERBAIJAN IS A VITAL AND TOP PRIORITY ISSUE FOR ARMENIA"
July 28 2008
Settlement of the Karabakh conflict is a real, not cosmetic resolution
of the Armenian-Azerbaijani relations and it can not be subjugated
to the use of the third factors, said chairman Caucasus Center of
Peacekeeping Initiatives Georgy Vanyan in his interview to Day.Az.
According to him, this is a vital issue for both countries and both
peoples and importance of this issue can not be compared to the factor
of opened or closed border with Turkey.
He noted that resumption and freezing of the Armenian-Azerbaijani
conflict is a small change for the third countries.
"The conflict resolution lays in the area of direct
Azerbaijani-Armenian relations. Our internal potential should be
used for the purpose. Resolution of the conflict with Azerbaijan is a
vital and top priority issue for Armenia. It can not lay in the area
"of changing interests" of some third countries, either neighbor ones,
or super states or simply states."
He said the real progress in the Armenian-Turkish relations
will undoubtedly cause progress in the resolution of the
"But this will not occur in the geopolitical field. The thaw in the
relations can be possible in case of profound changes in Armenia. It
does not mean change of powers. I imply the timely reassessment of
national interests and review of development priorities", said Vanyan.
