A peace treaty would mean a final settlement of the Artsakh issue in favor of Azerbaijan, Yerevan would make new concessions. The Armenian authorities have adopted the policy of peace at any price, which may cost the statehood in the end, and in these conditions everything is expected. This was stated by Andranik Tevanyan, an MP from the "Armenia" bloc, in a conversation with journalists on September 1.

According to his assessment, the last meeting in Brussels was held on the Azerbaijani agenda.

"Azerbaijan presented the five principles that should be the basis of the peace treaty. Yerevan responded to them very quickly and agreed to them. Then the Armenian authorities stated that they presented their six proposals that were supposed to supplement the five Azerbaijani proposals, but Baku simply ignored them. Yerevan responded to this with silence, actually accepting that the peace treaty should be on Azerbaijani conditions," the MP said.

He reminded that Azerbaijan's five principles did not presuppose any status of Artsakh, did not presuppose any conflict, and Aliyev stated that the Artsakh issue is closed and Armenians must reconcile with the total loss of Karabakh.

"If we compare the 5 Azerbaijani principles and Baku's official statements, it becomes clear that the peace treaty will be on Baku's agenda. Moreover, there is no word about Karabakh in Charles Michel's statement, even the word "Karabakh" is not mentioned. "Earlier we argued that Michel did not use the term 'Nagorno Karabakh', which implies the entity, used the wording 'the Armenian population of Karabakh' and spoke about their rights and security guarantees, but now there is none of that either," Tevanyan said.

He is sure that official Yerevan washed its hands of the Karabakh issue.

"After the 44-day war, Armenia has significantly lost its subjectivity in international relations, and in Artsakh, its statehood. Now we see that Armenia is being kicked like a soccer match by the Turks on one side, by Brussels on the other, and by Moscow on the third. Each is pursuing its own interests, but no one is promoting Armenia's interests. The Armenian authorities are exclusively engaged in protection of their seats. If they find this protection in Turkey, they will serve the interests of Turkey. It will be the same with Brussels and Moscow," the deputy added.

Based on his experience, Tevanyan concluded that the tasks Azerbaijan sets for itself get from Pashinyan.

"Now Baku talks about the same enclaves, but I don't see any counterarguments based on the policy of the authorities. What happened in Lachin contradicts the November 9 statement, and even the Armenian authorities said that Azerbaijan's demands are illegitimate. But a few days later, the proxies of the Armenian authorities in Artsakh said that the Armenians should leave Lachin. So in the end what Baku demanded happened," the deputy concluded.
