Armenia’s new authorities haven’t made any progress in the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, at least in the process of negotiations. This is what political scientist Aghasi Yenokyan told journalists today.
“They set forth the major goal to have Artsakh become a party to the negotiations, but they failed to achieve that goal. What’s more, they still don’t have a clear plan to return Artsakh to the negotiating table. Instead, the major achievements that Armenia made, particularly the agreements on monitoring mechanisms reached in 2016, are no longer on the agenda,” he stated.
Yenokyan attached importance to the monitoring mechanisms and insisted that they are important in terms of preventing a war. “Many think this is merely a matter of technique, but it is a major mechanism that can prevent military operations,” he said.
