JAMnews: restoration of railways complicated because of war in Karabakh

In his article “The disappeared railway from my childhood and the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict”, posted by JAMnews on October 24, Armenian journalist Alexander Martirosyan claimed that the combat actions of the autumn of 2020, known as the Second Karabakh War, further exacerbated the parties to the conflict and complicated the solution of such a problem as the resumption of communication by rail between Georgian Tbilisi, Armenian Gyumri, and Turkish Kars.

Alexander Martirosyan emphasizes that “closed roads deprive us of the opportunity to choose.” “However, the openness can help us distinguish economic interests from public interests, politics from murders, and charity from hatred,” the Armenian journalist noted.

The Azerbaijani authorities are counting on the resumption of the railway communication with the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic (NAR) through the territory of Armenia, that is, the opening of the so-called Zangezur corridor. Baku believes that the creation of the Zangezur corridor is provided for by trilateral agreements on the cessation of the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, but Armenia does not recognize that.

The conflict is deepening due to the “militant aspirations and ambitions of top-ranking officials” of Armenia and other states to the detriment of the economic interests of the respective countries, Alexander Martirosyan believes.
