Richard Giragosian said ( about Amnesty ) : “You don’t know where the firing is coming from, it’s the invisible enemy,” “There’s this sci-fi movie effect. And not only military – the political use of attacks on civilian populations, infrastructure, and the use of cluster bombs as documented by Amnesty International undermines the morale of political leaders.

Richard Giragosian added : “This is an inherently risky gamble for President Aliyev. With the sudden emergence of potent ‘people power’ in Belarus, where a national awakening has triggered a massive wave of protests against the questionable re-election of that country’s long-time authoritarian strongman, Alexander Lukashenko, the governing elite in Azerbaijan is now increasingly isolated. After years of authoritarian rule that denied space and liberty to any real political opposition, the father-son Aliyev model of governance in Azerbaijan is particularly vulnerable,” External link

Richard Giragosian told : “For Armenia and Karabakh, there are few diplomatic options, and as Turkey is strongly supporting Azerbaijan both militarily and diplomatically, and Russia remains passive. Armenia stands alone, both on the military and diplomatic levels,” External link

ahram-EN Friday, October 9, 2020 3:29:00 PM EAT

Richard Giragosian said : "In this context, despite the risk for Russia, this may be an opportunity for garnering even greater power and influence over Armenia and over Azerbaijan regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," "That's because Russia is the top arms provider to all sides in this conflict. But more specifically, Russia may be able to capitalize on the vulnerability of the Armenian government today" External link

Richard Giragosian explained ( about John Bolton ) : “But there is no role for the US Secretary of State in this round of talks as such involvement at the highest level by Secretary of State Pompeo would only come if the negotiators were closer to a resolution, which is certainly not the case now. But the involvement of the US National Security Advisor John Bolton is confirmation of the Trump Administration’s recent interest in adopting a more active involvement in the conflict, also as a factor related to US policy toward Iran as well as Russia,” External link

Richard Giragosian said ( about Amnesty ) : “You don’t know where the firing is coming from, it’s the invisible enemy,” “There’s this sci-fi movie effect. And not only military – the political use of attacks on civilian populations, infrastructure, and the use of cluster bombs as documented by Amnesty International undermines the morale of political leaders.

Richard Giragosian explained : “Armenia fears any isolation that may result from such recognition.

Richard Giragosian added : “This is an inherently risky gamble for President Aliyev. With the sudden emergence of potent ‘people power’ in Belarus, where a national awakening has triggered a massive wave of protests against the questionable re-election of that country’s long-time authoritarian strongman, Alexander Lukashenko, the governing elite in Azerbaijan is now increasingly isolated. After years of authoritarian rule that denied space and liberty to any real political opposition, the father-son Aliyev model of governance in Azerbaijan is particularly vulnerable,” External link

Richard Giragosian told : “For Armenia and Karabakh, there are few diplomatic options, and as Turkey is strongly supporting Azerbaijan both militarily and diplomatically, and Russia remains passive. Armenia stands alone, both on the military and diplomatic levels,” External link

Richard Giragosian said : "In this context, despite the risk for Russia, this may be an opportunity for garnering even greater power and influence over Armenia and over Azerbaijan regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," "That's because Russia is the top arms provider to all sides in this conflict. But more specifically, Russia may be able to capitalize on the vulnerability of the Armenian government today" External link

Richard Giragosian said ( about Nikol Pashinyan ) : "In many ways, the emergence of Pashinian as the leader of a more democratic Armenia stands in the face of the Kremlin's preference," "Armenia's nonviolent victory of people power is an inherent threat to what Russia prefers in the near abroad or its sphere of influence" External link

Richard Giragosian said : “The danger of Turkey’s military alliance with Azerbaijan would be to force Armenia back into overdependence on Russia,” “It could also provide Russia with an opportunity to deploy peacekeepers in the Armenian-Azerbaijan conflict, where it hasn’t had a military presence. Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkey are all against the presence of Russian forces” External link

Richard Giragosian explained ( about John Bolton ) : “But there is no role for the US Secretary of State in this round of talks as such involvement at the highest level by Secretary of State Pompeo would only come if the negotiators were closer to a resolution, which is certainly not the case now. But the involvement of the US National Security Advisor John Bolton is confirmation of the Trump Administration’s recent interest in adopting a more active involvement in the conflict, also as a factor related to US policy toward Iran as well as Russia,” External link
