If position of Azerbaijan is strong, thesis of territorial integrity of country will dominate
The final statement of the Foreign Ministry of Russian Federation (RF) on the Georgian-Ossetin conflict and the self-determination principle was forwarded to Georgia and indirectly to Moldova, Azer Mursaliyev, the deputy editor-in-chief of the newspaper Kommersant, informed the special correspondent of Trend in Moscow.
It is clear that these two countries have not good relations with Moscow, and the history of the bilateral relations over the past two years it is a gold war between Russia and Georgia, as well as Moldova, partially Ukraine. As always, Azerbaijan separates in this situation and remains alone, told Mursaliyev.
In politicians opinion, it is not by accident that recently the Russian defense minister Ivanov kindly and neutrally spoke about the Nogorno-Karabakh conflict at the meeting of the defense ministers of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) member-countries in Baku. At the same time, the statement of the Foreign Ministry it is the statement of the Foreign Ministry, although it separately touched up on taken regions. The Russian foreign minister put the territorial integrity of the neighboring countries under the doubt. Undoubtedly, it will affect the position of Armenia in the solution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, told Mursaliyev.
Besides, Mursaliyev noted that if Azerbaijan and its position are strong enough, of course, the thesis of the territorial integrity of the country will dominate. If Azerbaijan gets into a conflict situation and its position weakens, of course, the self-determination principle and many other principles will be remembered. It is fair not only from the position of Russia, but also other European countries. To tell the truth, practically all small and serious forces of the planet from China, Europe to the USA take interest in this region, said Mursaliyev.
