Russian political expert: “Nagorno Karabakh will never be part of Armenia”

Moscow: The continuation of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over 20 years shows that there is not a peaceful solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. 21 years passed since the ceasefire was declared. During this period number of violations of the ceasefire is countless.

As a result, there were a number of military and civil casualties. Nagorno Karabakh will never be part of Armenia,” said well-known Russian political scientist and expert of the Carnegie Moscow Center Alexey Malashenko to APA’s Moscow bureau.

According to Russian political expert, the entire world is aware of Azerbaijan’s strong army. “But they will not let any side win on the battle ground. Because nobody needs it. Taking into consideration that there are problems like a territorial integrity and sovereignty, it remains as a huge problem in Ukraine, South Caucasus, and Middle East. Territorial integrity and sovereignty are the main problems for all of them.

Commenting on the activity of OSCE Minsk Group, engaged in the settelement of Nagornoo Karabakh conflict, Alexey Malashenko noted that their principle is to make an effort to continue negotiations in order to prevent a new war in Nagorno Karbakh: “more negotiations, less danger of the war …” This is the main “slogan” of the OSCE Mink Group’s activity.”
