"Maintaining negotiation process on Karabakh conflict will reduce the risk of military confrontation"

The meeting of Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan is praiseworthy,Stanislav Tarasov, a Russian expert specializing in Middle East and Caucasus Affairs told Armenian mass media while commenting on the Presidents' meeting held in Geneva on Oct. 16, AzVision.az reports.

"The sides should maintain the format of the navigation process which will reduce the risk of military confrontation. I can say this about the meeting since little information is available. usually during such level meetings either the agenda is known or there is an information flow on what issues can be discussed which enables the analysts to make comments."

In this case before the meeting contradictory statements were made. In particular, president Ilham Aliyev said Armenia has accepted certain preconditions, but he didn't mention what preconditions the talk is about. Armenia highlights the Vienna and St.Petersburg agreements. The co-chairs in their turn talk about a document the details of which are being discussed. Thus, it is difficult to make a comment on the background of these contradictory statements", Stanislav Tarasov said.
