Political Analyst: Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh separatists plan to strengthen military presence in Azerbaijani occupied territories

Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 18 / Trend, S. Agayeva /

Neither Armenia nor the separatist regime of Nagorno-Karabakh want to peacefully resolve the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and live with Azerbaijanis, but rather train military personnel to strengthen its military presence in the Azerbaijani occupied territories. This is according to a plan by the separatist regime and other Armenian circles standing behind it, Trend Expert Council member, Western University professor, political analyst Fikret Sadikhov told Trend today.

He was commenting on Armenian media's information on the plans of opening a military school in Nagorno-Karabakh, which will be named after great military leader Alexander Suvorov.

Sadikhov added that unfortunately, Azerbaijan has facing many unfriendly statements and hostile actions of Armenia and some other neighbors within all the years of its independence. Being in a state of war and conflict with Armenia, the country turned into the object of ill will.

Several Islamophobic countries, which essentially reject the prosperity and development of independent Azerbaijan, have chosen the country as a target.

"Everybody is aware of these forces: These are different Islamophobic centers, the countries that indulge in Armenia's interests and pro-Armenian circles," he said. "We understand that we have faced with the countries with Islamophobic attitude and a very strong and wealthy Armenian diaspora."

He said that a new wave of accusations has been recently started against the militarization of Azerbaijan, and this is not casual.

He stressed that this is connected with the fact that Azerbaijan's development irritates some circles and countries.

"Azerbaijan does not abase itself," he said. "The country clearly and unequivocally states its clear and transparent position on a number of issues and does not take the leading world countries' compromises in conflict with Armenia."

He added that Azerbaijan does not claim to the territory of any country.

"We have never said that we are going to capture and target neighboring countries," he said. "The matter rests in releasing its own territory."

Moreover, Baku has repeatedly offered various solutions to the conflict in accordance with European principles.

The opening of a military school in Nagorno-Karabakh is very bright and significant example of the militarization in Armenia and in Nagorno-Karabakh, the analyst said.

"I can not understand Suvorov's attitude towards Karabakh Armenians, but, apparently, the passion for some famous military leaders gives no rest to some 'hotheads' in Nagorno-Karabakh," he said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France and the U.S. - are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
