Talks on Karabakh peace process will intensify this autumn, said Ruben Safrastyan, Director of Oriental Studies Institute, National Academy of Sciences of Armenia, in a press conference, today.
The expert believes that Washington’s recent policy suggests that U.S. will try to make more initiatives in the Karabakh peace process and even replace Moscow, the most active mediator in the talks.
“However, possible change of external actors will not have any fundamental effect on settlement of the Karabakh conflict,” Safrastyan said.
He is sure that neither Moscow, nor Washington seek resumption of military actions in the conflict zone. The expert drew attention to the fact that Azerbaijan is already trying to take diplomatic measures to ensure more favorable environment for talks.
In particular, one can see that Baku’s foreign policy priorities have changed, at least, Ilham Aliyev was not present at the Iranian president’s swearing-in ceremony.
