ArmInfo.Azerbaijan's pressure on Armenia will only increase over time, but the likelihood of a large-scale war is low. MP from the "I have honor" faction Tigran
Abrahamyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
" Baku's main goal of increasing the degree of pressure through armed
provocations and murders on the border is to gain the corridor they
longed for through the territory of Armenia. But today I see only the
possibility of the risk of continuing local clashes. Azerbaijan has
been preparing for its current stage for a long time, actively
spreading misinformation about violations of the regime truce that
allegedly took place by the Armenian side," he said.
According to the oppositionist, in order to achieve its goal, Baku
forced Yerevan to withdraw the last conscript soldiers from Artsakh
ahead of time. Azerbaijan also forced Armenia to agree to the
construction of the Armenian section of the Tegh-Kornidzor road,
alternative to the Lachin corridor. And although no construction work
has been completed there, it turns out that even now citizens will
have to move on the ground to travel to Artsakh.
The parliamentarian is convinced that by putting forward such
humiliating demands for the Armenian leadership, Baku is preparing
the ground for new demands in the future. And he will receive exactly
as much as Yerevan will be ready to give up. Accordingly, according
to his forecasts, the current tension will last until Armenia
fulfills all the demands of Azerbaijan.
"Baku has a clear program of action for the final de-Armenization of
Artsakh in the next decade. While the current government of Armenia,
apparently, is ready to make concessions, surrender territories, etc.
However, instead of doing it peacefully , it prefers to do this under
the guise of local clashes. Considering that having lost Artsakh,
Armenia will become even more defenseless, our task is to prevent
behind-the- scenes agreements around Artsakh. Since the loss of
Artsakh, the loss of a combat-ready army will lead us to the loss of
statehood," Abramyan summed up.
