No Serious Progress to be Expected in Karabakh Conflict Resolution Process

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–The political director of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Giro Manoyan said Tuesday that the recent talks between the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan on the Karabakh conflict resolution, indicated that no serious progress would be registered in the near future.
"The talks demonstrated that the mediators, who sounded optimistic, are not realistic because Azerbaijan has turned back from agreemen’s reached previously," said Manoyan during a round table discussion with former Prime Minister Hrant Bagratian.
He said that the international community was not interested in the Karabakh issue since there were many other issues in the world, including the presidential election in the US. “So, we need to use the time and focus on our issues that have not been settled so far, among them, the resettlement of the territories under Armenian control,” said Manoyan.
“There is no sense to start the process from scratch after the presidential elections in Armenia and Azerbaijan, so, Azerbaijan should know that if it fails to take this opportunity, it may face an option of negotiating with Karabakh in the future,” explained Manoyan.
"It is clear to us that the most important thing is the status of Karabakh, other issues are secondary," he said.
