American analyst: “Unless a genuine mediation moves forward, negotiations would likely become a surprising rather than a likely outcome”

 Stephen Blank, a Professor at the Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, believes that a new war over Nagorno-Karabakh would be a disaster for everyone concerned, and the only beneficiary would probably be Russia who could then try to implement its neo-imperial vision over the corpses of the ensuing fatalities, APA Washington DC correspondent reports.

In his latest analyze on Nagorno-Karabakh peace process, Prof. Blank mentioned that the recent failures of the negotiations are unsurprising.

“But as current history and the present trends in the Caucasus suggest, unless a genuine mediation moves forward, negotiations would likely become a surprising rather than a likely outcome”, he noted.

In the meanwhile, the analyst points out that Azerbaijan’s relations with the US are now improving now and joint exercises between the two states’ armed forces recently took place, albeit in Germany and Romania. But Baku clearly also wants weapons and NATO support.

“Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz said in Baku that Turkey is ready to support and join the Azerbaijani army in defense production. Both states have also signed an agreement on strategic cooperation and formed a high advisory council. Thus Azerbaijan has apparently decided to reject Moscow’s demand that it subordinate its defense and security policy to Moscow” he added.
