Russian diplomacy attempts to revive USSR policy in Middle East

PanARMENIAN.Net - "The Russian diplomacy attempts to revive the USSR policy in Middle East, Dr Ruben Safrastyan, Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies, told a news conference in Yerevan.

"Russia is demonstrating wait-and-see attitude but the USSR used to support Kurds. Do not forget that Masoud Barzani's father was a KGB agent and the old ties were certainly maintained," he said adding that Russia's line in the South Caucasus is still firm.

"Russia has the 102nd military base in Armenia. It has good relations with Armenia and Azerbaijan. However, the U.S. is determined to push Russia out of the region," Dr Safrastyan said.
