Negotiations with Azerbaijan are held behind scenes – expert

02:22, 01.05.2012 Region: Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan Theme: Politics, Analytics

The statements of OSCE Minsk Group should be open and honest but negotiations with Azerbaijan are held behind scenes, political scientist Sergei Minasyan, the director of the Caucasus Institute, told Armenian News-NEWS.am, commenting on the statement of OSCE co-chairs upon the ceasefire violation by Azerbaijan. According to him, it is evident that OSCE Minsk Group brings together the leading actors in the region, especially Russia and the United States who are not interested in escalating the conflict. “Diplomatic announcements are one thing, but a serious ‘discussion’, which I am sure took place, is something entirely different,” he noted. Commenting on the question whether a serious ‘discussion’ might affect Azerbaijan’s actions in the future Minasyan announced that the situation must be assessed realistically. “Such incidents will occur until Azerbaijan is able to demonstrate its discontent and dissent on the current situation. Everybody knows that there is a certain line which Azerbaijan will not overstep,” Sergei Minasyan said. As Armenian News-NEWS.am informed earlier, Dovegh village’s kindergarten was fired at on Thursday, and a VAZ 2107 was fired at on Friday at the road section between the Aygepar and Movses villages, and, as a result, the three citizens in the car were killed.
