Russia’s ability to influence the settlement of the conflict is incomparably greater than that of any other country, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev told RBC TV
Of the three co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group (Russia, USA, France), Moscow, due to historical and political reasons, has the greatest potential to influence the course of the conflict. The head of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev told RBC TV channel about it.
“Russia, as our neighbor, as a country that has a common history with both Azerbaijan and Armenia, of course, it plays a special role. And, of course, this role, it is based both on history and on the interaction of our peoples, as well as on the weight and role of Russia in the world and, of course, in our region. Therefore, of course, Russia’s ability to influence the settlement of the conflict is incomparably greater than that of any other country, due to these objective reasons, ”he said.
According to the President, Azerbaijan has repeatedly appealed to the Russian leadership to use the levers of political influence on Armenia and convince the Armenian side to end the occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenia, according to him, is 100% dependent on Russia – from security to gas and electricity supplies. “With the persistence on the part of the Russian side, given that we changed the status quo, we broke through the line of contact, and I think that sobering up in Yerevan happened, of course, Russia has a lot of tools to convince Armenia in a short time that the only way out – and not only in terms of military confrontation, but for the future of Armenia as a whole – is to find a solution with Azerbaijan, and it is quite simple: to leave the territory, withdraw troops, our people will return there, and we will try to live side by side again, ”Aliyev said.
On Friday, October 9, consultations between the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and Jeyhun Bagramov were held in Moscow with the mediation of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. They lasted almost 11 hours. The result was an agreed statement on a ceasefire from 12 noon on October 10 and the beginning of negotiations on a peaceful settlement. However, during Saturday, the parties announced a violation of the silence.
Commenting on the relations between Moscow and Baku, the President of Azerbaijan noted the increasing flow of tourists (last year the country was visited by almost 1 million Russians), the development of relations on five “road maps” of cooperation in the economy and other areas. However, since the beginning of the aggravation on September 27, the attitude of Azerbaijanis towards Russia could worsen due to the coverage of the conflict in the Russian media, the head of Azerbaijan admitted.
“During these two weeks, when on some Russian channels we see rabid anti-Azerbaijani propaganda, falsification, manipulation, an unbalanced composition of talk show participants, when the Azerbaijani people are insulted, the President of Azerbaijan is insulted on the leading Russian channels, this, of course, does not add to Russia’s authority. “, – noted Aliyev. He said that he had brought this issue to the attention of the Russian leadership. “The information attack that we faced with the Russian media, during this time, of course, it did great harm to the public perception of Russia,” he warned. The head of the Republic of Azerbaijan did not give specific examples of such attacks.
Since the beginning of the fighting, a state of emergency was declared in Armenia, and on October 8, by the decision of the government, publications criticizing, refuting the actions of state bodies and local self-government bodies to ensure martial law and state security, as well as questioning the effectiveness of these actions or devaluing them, were prohibited. On the same day, Ilya Azar, a special correspondent for the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, was stripped of his accreditation. According to him, the reason was his report from the conflict zone.
