YEREVAN. – Russian foreign ministry’s recent statements are an attempt to cut Azerbaijan down to size, Armenian analyst Stepan Grigoryan told 168zham newspaper.
“Such statements made one after another are not a mere coincidence,” said Stepan Grigoryan, director of Analytical Centre on Globalization and Regional Cooperation.
He believes it is the answer to arrogant behavior of the neighboring state, as it is very difficult to deal with a similar country and similar leadership that has no respect for agreements.
In an interview with the newspaper the analyst described the statement by Maria Zakharova as “an important and sufficient step”.
During the briefing this week, spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry said: “Russia, as a participant in the respective format, is doing its utmost, everything necessary, for its part, to find the compromise. It is desirable that it be found, and the sooner the better; but without harming the peoples of the two countries, and, of course, the people of Nagorno-Karabakh.”
