YEREVAN.- Azerbaijan’s success in propaganda is complicating the process of recognition of the Nagorno-Karabakh independence, political analyst Alexander Manasyan told the journalists on Wednesday.
According to him, by signing truce the Armenian side thought the Karabakh war is over.
“It is a peculiarity of Armenians’ way of thinking. If the fire is stops, we think the war is over too. However, it continues but in information field. We should accept and give an adequate response to this challenge,” he said.
Manasyan said the Khojalu events are well studied by the Armenian side but were not put forward during the information war.
“We thought the truth can win, but it cannot, unless true facts are protected. The result was recognition of Khojalu ‘genocide’ by Pakistan and the threat to recognize it by Mexico. Azerbaijan’s success in propaganda is complicating the process of recognition of the Nagorno-Karabakh independence,” he stressed.
The analyst underscored that using official diplomacy and work of NGOs we should raise awareness about the Sumgait and Baku pogroms.
“The world must see true face of Azerbaijan – a state which committed the Armenian Genocide for many times - to fix success achieved in the process of recognition. We must direct all the efforts to change the essence of the conflict which was distorted by Azerbaijan,” he concluded.
