NOVEMBER 2, 2010
YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 2, ARMENPRESS: It is not always that imperial
centers reconcile themselves with independence of peoples as a result
of collapse of empires. Azerbaijan, driven by murmur of loss of the
own empire, cannot adapt itself to the reality, member of the public
council of the Armenian Defense Ministry, military psychologist Davit
According to him, the history of collapse of Russian, French, and
British empires shows that when the alliance has gained independence
from them with its ethnic borders, the latter have not made territorial
concessions; sooner or later the empire center has reconciled itself
with that thought. ”
According to the military psychologist, when we compare which party
will experience more losses in case of war, it becomes obvious that it
will be only Azerbaijan, as Armenia is in more favorable conditions.
“We must be so strong with our potential – army and economy, that
Azerbaijan becomes sure that their aggressive strivings can no more
become reality,” he said.
Referring to the joint statement of the Armenian and Azerbaijani
Presidents in Astrakhan, Mr. Jamalyan expressed an opinion that it
is the most to which the parties could come in the current conditions.
Mr. Jamalyan said that looking directly at the reality, the situation
can be depicted as “claim of territory with promise of not colonizing.
“It is historically unprecedented and impossible phenomenon in our
case,” he said.
