Azerbaijan Preparing for War, Warns Sarkisian

President Sarkisian with his Lithuanian counterpart, Dalia Grybauskaite during Wednesday's press conference

YEREVAN—President Serzh Sarkisian said Wednesday that Azerbaijan is waiting for the right moment to resume military “adventures”—attacks.

Speaking at a press conference with Lithuania’s visiting president, Dalia Grybauskaite, Sarkisian pledged Armenia’s commitment for a peaceful resolution to the Nagrono-Karabakh conflict. Lithuania holds the OSCE presidency this year.

“Unfortunately, Azerbaijan continues to escalate the situation with continued statements that do not correspond with any norms of civilized dialogue and which seriously harm the negotiation process,” said Sarkisian.

“As a tactic, Azerbaijan has opted for a policy to drag out [the talks] and is waiting for the right moment to resume military activities,” added Sarkisian who expressed Armenia’s willingness to work with the negotiation parameters.

“However, to achieve a resolution, it is imperative that Azerbaijan have the same desire,” expressed Sarkisian.

In her remarks, Grybauskaite ruled out any military resolution to the conflict, saying that a peaceful solution is possible.

“No one, and in that realm, no international organization will never support a military solution,” said the Lithuanian leader.

    Translation: No military victory by the Armenian side will be acceptable. Azeri military victory, on the other hand…will be regarded as…well…”there’s nothing we can do now”…response.

    So arm yourself Armenia, and nothing less than total obliteration of the Azeri army, again, will put an end to this international charade. Armenia can say after that…”nothing is left to be done”.

      Azeris and Turks get out of Armenia and Greece! Vacate the so called Azerbaijan, So called Turkey, Nakhichevan and Cypress. Ohwgile you are at it, get out of Bulgaria, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iran, Syria, Caucasus at large, and go back to your homes east of the Caspian.
