YEREVAN.- NATO mentioned about territorial integrity of Azerbaijan because of Georgia’s case, Armenian expert believes.

Ruben Safrastyan, head of Institute of Oriental Studies, commented on the NATO Summit declaration supporting sovereignty and territorial integrity of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Moldova.  

“By including such wordings in a declaration, NATO wants to show Georgia there is an opportunity to join the alliance, although Georgia is engaged in territorial conflicts as well,” he told journalists on Friday.

Nevertheless, the expert considers the document is a mistake as Azerbaijan will perceive it as a pardoner for new provocations in the line of contact with Karabakh.

“NATO will not directly act as a mediator, as the bloc clearly supports the talks held within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group,” Safrastyan added.

He considers Armenian leader’s decision not to attend the summit was right.

“Presence of president during signing of such document is not in Armenia’s interests,” he said.
