Azerbaijan has missed the opportunities to settle Karabakh conflict by military means, and foreign actors would not let this happen, political analyst Stanislav Tarasov told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
He noted that without Turkey’s support Baku is unlikely to start a military operation in Karabakh, as they may face the risk of colliding with Russia. However, Turkey has too many problems to care about Karabakh now.
“In fact Baku is at stalemate, as the old elite in Mejlis [Azerbaijani parliament] still pursues a policy of revanchism. Therefore, we must hope that a new generation will be able to assess the situation differently, and who will seek reconciliation scenarios. Although it can take years, however, political changes in Baku can somewhat reduce the escalation,” Stanislav Tarasov added.
On December 2 Azerbaijani deputies asked president to dissolve the parliament.
