/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armenia must negotiate with Azerbaijan for peaceful
settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and simultaneously be ready
to resume hostilities, Eduard Abrahamyan, the expert of the `Mitk’
analytical center told journalists in Yerevan.
"The Nagorno Karabakh conflict cannot be resolved through compromise,
since it is an ethnic struggle. Many politicians mistakenly compare
the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with the Franco-German one. If in the
case of Karabakh, there were ethnic cleansings, in the case of the
Franco-German conflict, the ethnic structure of Alsace-Lorraine has
not been changed at all,’ the Armenian expert said.
According to Eduard Abrahamyan, it is not right to talk about
reciprocal concessions for the Karabakh problem resolution and keep in
mind only territorial concessions. `The territory can be passed only
in exchange for other territories. It should be noted that today
Azerbaijan needs to establish a land connection with
Turkey. Therefore, it needs to negotiate with Armenia more than we,
because the Armenian side in the military, geographic, and ethnic
terms, solved its tasks. So, Baku should be more interested in
continuation of negotiations, than we, ` the expert said.
Referring to the recently promulgated Madrid principles, Eduard
Abrahamyan observed that the American side, by publishing these
principles, made it clear that there is some agreement on them
