Feb 16, 2009
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 16, NOYAN TAPAN. The Nagorno Karabakh conflict
settlement has no negotiations, diplomatic solution. Analyst
Armen Aghayan expressed such an opinion at the March 16 press
conference. According to him, indeed not the negotiations format has
been exhausted, but they were useless from the very start. "They could
not but be a failure, as in 1994 the Artsakh war was interrupted
and not finished," A. Aghayan said adding that the view is spread
in Armenia that the Karabakh war has been finished, at that, with
Armenians’ victory. However, according to him, Azerbaijan has not been
defeated finally and is not going to conciliate with the losses the
Armenian people considers its victorious achievement. "For Azerbaijan,
the sense of the negotiations is the continuation of the war,"
A. Aghayan said.
According to him, analyses show that RA President Serzh
Sargsyan is ready to solve the Nagorno Karabakh problem through
concessions. However, in A. Aghayan’s opinion, to achieve his goals
S. Sargsyan should overcome two great obstacles, Azerbaijan’s
bellicose disposition and Armenian people’s national-historic
self-consciousness. And they, according to him, are insuperable.
