Expert: EU’s And France’s Stances On Karabakh Differ


March 23, 2012 – 16:53 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net – A senior fellow at the Institute of Political and
Social Studies of the Black Sea and Caspian region commented on the
document on Armenia adopted by the European Parliament proposing
to replace France’s mandate in OSCE Minsk Group on Nagorno Karabakh
conflict settlement with that of the European Union.

In conversation with a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, Andrei Areshev noted
that the decision is conditioned by EU’s wish to advance its positions
in the region.

According to the expert, though France as EU member-state de facto
represented EU’s stance, there was certain disjuncture between
positions of France and the rest of EU member states which sparked
discontent in European lobbies. The fact served reason for the issue to
be put to vote and likely to be approved under pressure from Brussels.

Areshev further deemed changes in Karabakh conflict resolution
hardly probable, although the position of EU member-states on the
issue differs.

“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
