Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan predicts new war in Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - There is a high possibility of resumption of hostilities in Karabakh, as the talks reached a deadlock, according to Major General Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan, Commandos.

“The conflicting parties are trying to merge irreconcilable contradictions – the principle of territorial integrity and the right of nations to self-determination. Additional tension is created by the Armenian-Turkish rapprochement process. At that, failure of the dialogue will increase the possibility of war,” he said when responding to a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter’s question during a press conference on April 8.

“Azerbaijan and Turkey have been coordinating their foreign policies since 1919. I can’t say for sure that war will start this May but it will start anyway - if not this year, so next year for certain,” Commandos said.

Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan, Commandos

Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan, Commandos, (born on May 22, 1939 in Tbilisi, Georgia) was a military leader of the Armenian forces during the Nagorno Karabakh War. He is best known as being the commander of the operation to liberate the town of Shushi in May 1992, after which he was conferred the rank of Major General. In 2009, NKR President Bako Sahakyan honored him with Arstakh Hero order.

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan broke out as result of the ethnic cleansing launched by the Azeri authorities in the final years of the Soviet Union. The Karabakh War was fought from 1991 (when the Nagorno Karabakh Republic was proclaimed) to 1994 (when a ceasefire was sealed by Armenia, NKR and Azerbaijan). Most of Nagorno Karabakh and a security zone consisting of 7 regions are now under control of NKR defense army. Armenia and Azerbaijan are holding peace talks mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group up till now.
