Even though experts do not expect a new war in Nagorno-Karabakh,
Armenia must be always ready for it, political expert Levon Shirinyan
told journalists on Saturday.
He said that the recurring incidents on the contact line may trigger a
new war. “We don’t know what the Azeri authorities are thinking about,
so, we must be ready for the worse. As a matter of fact, the war is
already in progress,” the expert said.
He advises Armenia to follow Israel’s example and to create a military
zone along the contact line. “We need a multi-layer defense. Our
soldiers are excellent fighters, but we must not forget that we have
nowhere to retreat. We also need a clear plan of action to be able to
win quickly should the war resume,” the expert said.
