YEREVAN (Yerkir)–Baku’s statemen’s on ceasefire violations are nothing but an attempt to show that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is not frozen but burning, Vice Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Vahan Hovhannisian said.
“I do not rule out that Baku paints a background that can lead to a real aggravation of this situation,” he said. I have recently been to Tigranakert (Aghdam region), which is situated near the frontline. I heard no firing there. The ceasefire is maintained.”
When commenting on the possibility of resumption of hostilities in the context of Azeri leadership’s militant statemen’s, Mr Hovhannisian said, “The tone of the Azeri leaders is influenced by the petrodollar factor. Apparently, they do not understand that any aggression will result in a sudden cut of this flow, since the oil facilities will be the first targets if Azerbaijan wages war. Azeris had better think before drying up the source that feeds them,” he said.
