/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Current stage of developments contains key elements
for both the region and Armenian-Turkish ties. There is a conflict
of views in Armenian-Turkish relations. Both sides have adopted
wait-and-see policy, following one another’s steps, Stepan Grigoryan,
Head of Analytical Center on Globalization and Regional Cooperation
(ACGRC), told journalists in Yerevan. "What we currently see in
Armenian-Azeri relations is an open information warfare. Parties make
tough statements, disseminating disinformation," expert noted.
With regard to regional processes, Grigoryan dwelled on changes in
Turkey’s foreign policy. "We are currently witnessing such changes –
warmer relations with Iran, Turkish side’s positive statements on
Iranian nuclear program and relationship with Middle East countries,"
Focusing on Russia’s role in the region, he noted that Moscow has
found relevant political tools. "Russia proposes public initiatives for
Armenia and Azerbaijan and touches on regional security issues," Stepan
Grigoryan said, adding that Armenia should consider the factors above.
