“Azerbaijan and Armenia have reached a verbal agreement on the establishment of a delimitation commission. I think a delimitation document should be signed,” Interfax quoted Shafiyev as saying.
At the same time, the analyst believes that it is unlikely that a peace treaty will be signed between Azerbaijan and Armenia in 2022. “The majority of the Armenian population voted for Nikol Pashinyan (in the parliamentary elections in summer 2021—Ed.). But every third person speaks against him. This must be taken into account. Some organizations do not support Pashinyan’s policies in Armenia,” Shafiyev stressed.
Commenting on today’s meeting of special representatives of Turkey and Armenia in Moscow, Shafiyev pointed out that some forces do not want Turkey-Armenia relations to stabilize. “Armenia’s current policy is determined by third countries. Some states do not want normalization of relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia as well as between Turkey and Armenia,” he said.
The head of the AIR Center added that Baku’s goal is to compel Yerevan to recognize the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan without the use of force. “Our main goal is to get Armenia to recognize the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan through a diplomatic process. As the President of Azerbaijan said, if Armenia does not recognize the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, then Azerbaijan will not recognize the territorial integrity of Armenia,” Shafiyev emphasized.
