Israeli political analyst: Azerbaijan fairly wants to liberate its occupied territories
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 2
By Nargiz Sadikhova - Trend:
As always, the world community shook off the issue related to the escalation of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict by voicing the general phrases and was engaged in its own affairs, Israeli political analyst Yuri Bocharov told Trend on Oct. 2.
Bocharov said that Azerbaijan wants to liberate its occupied territories and solve the problem of internally displaced people.
"This is a sacred deed and a duty of the leadership of the country, which can only be welcomed,” the political analyst added. “If the negotiations are not just deadlocked, they have not come out of deadlock for a quarter of a century, but the problem must be solved, then it is time to solve it in a different way or forget about it."
Bocharov also stressed that the war in the Nagorno-Karabakh region was discussed at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
"All world powers, including members of the UN Security Council, call on the parties to cease fire and return to the negotiations, which have been fruitlessly lasting for 26 years,” the political analyst said. “The war in Nagorno-Karabakh region was also discussed at an extraordinary meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna. As always, everybody stigmatized, condemned the aggression, and called on the countries to the dialogue.”
“The SCO and a number of other organizations expressed extreme concern over the aggravation of the situation in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” the political analyst added. “In general, as always, everyone shook off the issue by voicing the general phrases and was engaged in their own affairs. This means that the hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region will continue. No measures except for condemnation will be taken."
While commenting on the mediation activity of the OSCE Minsk Group on the settlement of the conflict, Bocharov emphasized that the OSCE Minsk Group made, in principle, the right decisions and proposals for a way out of the conflict.
"But no one wanted to bring these decisions to the end, to liberate, at least at the first stage, the occupied Azerbaijani territories,” the political analyst added. “That is, everyone was pleased with this situation, namely, in suspense, direct or indirect dependence on the members of the group."
"The negotiation process is always possible, both during the period of hostilities and during the period of peace,” Bocharov said. “The main thing is to have a topic for negotiations. There will always be a venue for them."
