Baku hopes Moscow can compel Yerevan to concessions on Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - Baku believes that Moscow can compel Russia to make concessions on the Nagorno Karabakh issue.

“We know that Russia is Armenia’s strategic partner. But we also know that Armenia depends much on Moscow. During the past years Baku-Moscow and Ankara-Moscow have considerably improved, what originates a hope that Russia’s mediation can be not only impartial but also effective,” political analyst Rasim Musabekov said.

As to the status quo, it may be maintained for a long time, according to him. “Time can come when Azerbaijan’s military advantage will inspire hope for a victory, given the favorable political situation, for example complications in Iran or strengthening of Azerbaijan’s political influence. In this case, resumption of hostilities is quite possible,” Musabekov said.
