US Intelligence: Tension over Karabakh could develop into large-scale conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia

Tension over the Nagorno-Karabakhregion could devolve into a large-scale military conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which could draw in Russia to support its regional ally, says the report published by U.S. intelligence.

Daniel Coats, director of U.S. National Intelligence, has published Worldwide Threat Assessment which contains 2018 assessment of threats to US national security, AzVision.az reported.

“Both sides’ reluctance to compromise, mounting domestic pressures, Azerbaijan’s steady military modernization, and Armenia’s acquisition of new Russian equipment sustain the risk of large-scale hostilities in 2018,” says the report.
