Despite the efforts being made already for the third time—this time by the US—to establish a humanitarian ceasefire on the line of contact between the Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and Azerbaijan opposing armed forces, it would be naive to think that it will actually enter into a coordinated action, as not Azerbaijan, but Turkey is not the main initiator and dictator of the current regional developments. Senor Hasratyan, former spokesman of the Artsakh Defense Army, noted about this in a social media post.
"There is only one real way to establish a full-fledged ceasefire and end the war after that, once and for all: to recognize Artsakh's independence and force Baku to come to terms with the created reality.
And only we [Armenians] can do that, with our military resilience and diplomatic prudence, convincing the world that this country [Artsakh] has rightly earned the right to live freely and independently and deserves respect. No matter how difficult [it is], but we will achieve that noble goal with a steady process thanks to our devotees who become heroes every day on the battlefield," Hasratyan added.
