The recent escalation at the frontline, during which the Azerbaijani side used a tank to shell the Armenian positions, is connected with the foreign external and internal developments, David Babayan, Spokesman for the NKR President, told Public Radio of Armenia.
He said the terrorist state is thus trying to destabilize the situation at the border, in order to be free to use force against its own people, as well.
Political scientist Hrant Melik-Shahnazaryan considers that the recurrent ‘convulsion’ of the rival aims to help them avoid negotiations. “They are thus trying to escape discussions on the principles of conflict settlement,” he said.
According to Melik-Shahnazaryan, Azerbaijan is trying to change the political agenda by creating tension in order to either evade a meeting or discussing the issue of border at the meeting, if there is one.
