Armenian analysts rule out Yerevan's refusal to talk on Karabakh within OSCE Minsk Group format

Armenia is interested in the negotiations on Nagorno-Karabakh within the format of the OSCE Minsk Group; and the West will support it in this, Armenian political analysts believe.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Armenia is ready to resume negotiations with the OSCE's participation, Nikol Pashinyan has stated. The tripartite armistice agreement, which contradicts the principles of the OSCE Minsk Group conflict settlement, prevents Armenia from intensifying the negotiations, political analysts have stated.

The transfer of the Karabakh issue into the OSCE format cannot imply any Yerevan's concessions, Andrias Gukasyan, a political analyst, has noted. He has recalled that at the suggestion of the OSCE, Azerbaijan should withdraw its troops from Shushi and Gadrut, return these territories under Armenian control and agree to hold a referendum.

The Azerbaijani party is trying to gradually weaken the Armenian influence on Nagorno-Karabakh, Thomas de Waal, an expert on the Karabakh conflict, has stated on air of the "Azatutyun TV".

In the opinion of Gukasyan, Russia plays a central but destructive role in the conflict settlement. Only due to Russia's position, the Azerbaijan's aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh remains unpunished he believes.
