Gabala radar base joint use not to tell on Armenia's relations with Russia and U.S.

PanARMENIAN.Net - The core of Vladimir Putin's proposal on joint with the U.S. use of the Gabala radar base is not the implementation of the project but cooperation possibilities, political scientist Stepan Grigoryan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter. Azerbaijan will benefit from this proposal, according to him. "Actually Azerbaijan assumes significance in the region. However, there are negative aspects as well. The Muslim world can disapprove such cooperation. Furthermore, Baku will arouse Iran's circumspection," he said.

"However, this cooperation will not tell on Armenia's relations with Russia and United States," he added.

Vladimir Putin told Bush their two countries could use Gabala radar system in Azerbaijan to develop a shield covering all of Europe, during talks at the G8 summit. Mr Putin said the base could detect incoming missiles from so-called rogue states aimed at Europe or the U.S.
