Azerbaijan, Baku / Т corr S. Aghayeva, S. Ilhamgizi / Proposal from Russian President, Vladimir Putin, to his US counterpart, George Bush, on the joint uses of the Gabala Radar Station (Azerbaijan) put forward within the framework of the G-Eight summit in Germany, will not satisfy the United States, Azerbaijani politician, Vafa Guluzadeh, said on the 8th of June.
"The United Sates intend to locate its Anti-Missile Defence (AMD) system in Europe in order to control Russia. The United States is interested in neither Iran, nor North Korea, which have been studied thoroughly by the country. However, Russia, a country which intends to restore its military power, this poses as a threat for the United States," he stressed. According to the politician, this smart move by Putin will resolve in no result at all.
Guluzadeh disagrees with placid moods within the political circles in Azerbaijan supposing that Azerbaijan will receive dividends on the matter.
"In case the United Sates agrees to co-operate with Russia in Gabala it will be under the control of the Russian Defence Ministry, which they do not want," politician said.
Another Azerbaijani politician, Rasim Musabeyov, believes that the joint exploitation of Azerbaijani Gabala Radar Station by Russia and the United States would be very important and acceptable for Azerbaijan. He believes the proposal is of an intelligent character.
"Thus, Russia wants to define whether the plans on AMD of the United States are intended against the country or not. In case Russia and Gabala agree on Gabala RS, vast changes will be made in the policy. Azerbaijan's strategic importance in this connection will increase," politician noted.
"It will also mean the co-operation of Russia with Europe. If the Unites Sates manages to direct Russia's position towards the West, then the US is likely to postpone its plans on the location of AMD in Poland and the Czech Republic," he noted.
