Problem Of Nagorno Karabakh Not To Be Solved Without U.S And RF


21.05.2009 19:21 GMT+04:00

Azerbaijan’s and Armenia’s approximation in talks over the settlement
of Nagorno Karabakh problem can be possible if RF and U.S. have a
hand in the process, said Azeri political scientist Rasim Musabekov.

"We should not expect that the sides can reach an accord by
themselves. Russia has its own interests in that area and we don’t
know what Moscow will require. Conditions, offered by Russia related to
assisting to the conflict settlement are not acceptable for Baku yet:
in particular, their call to stifle Georgia together with Moscow and
to put under Gasprom’s control our energy industry. It means we are
offered to return into the area of Russian influence. This is not
acceptable yet, but we will see in future," Musbekov said.

During his speech the president of Russia Vladimir Putin did not
hide his displeasure by Azerbaijan’s policy. Therefore, Moscow
will not oppress Armenia at all. Russia is dissatisfied with two
things: participation of Azerbaijan in NATO exercises in Georgia and
Baku’s support of the Nabucco project. Azerbaijan is played with
in anticipation when it will fulfill the requirements of Russia,"
Musabekov said.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
