K. BEKARYAN: NEGOTIATIONS PROCESS IS BETTER THAN SHOT
June 17 2010
“It is a regular meeting and I would not say that breakthrough will
come after the meeting or the meeting will give significant results,”
European Integration NGO Chairman, political scientist Karen Bekaryan
stated commenting upon the tripartite meeting of Armenian, Russian
and Azerbaijani Presidents Serzh Sargsyan, Dmitry Medvedev and Ilham
Aliyev in Saint Petersburg.
Mentioning that the Nagorno Karabakh settlement process is rather
complicated and deep as it is, and a resolution takes much time and
efforts, K. Bekaryan stressed that “he does not expect great results
as the Nagorno Karabakh Republic is not at the negotiations table.”
Nevertheless, the political scientist considers it possible that
“some new detail or element can appear” in the negotiations process
at the meeting.
“And in the general context it is a regular meeting, however, even if
it does not produce significant results, even if no breakthrough comes
after it, nevertheless the meeting is in itself important, because,
if the negotiations process works between the sides, in spite of all
its shortcomings, it is much better than any shot fired in a border
region,” K. Bekaryan stressed in conclusion.
