Armenian President threatens to recognize the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic in the event of conflict escalation

111
The President of the Republic of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, stated that in the event of further aggravation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, the authorities of the country will decide to recognize the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. The Armenian president made such a statement during the reception of the diplomatic representatives of the OSCE countries. Information Agency TASS quotes Sargsyan's statement:


As a party to the 1994 ceasefire agreement, Armenia will continue to fulfill its responsibilities to ensure the safety of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh. Further exacerbation of hostilities can lead to unpredictable and irreversible consequences, up to a large-scale war. This, naturally, will have an impact on security and stability not only in the South Caucasus, but also in the European region. If hostilities continue and gain wide scope, Armenia will recognize the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh.


Armenian President threatens to recognize the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic in the event of conflict escalation


Recall that in the NKR the third day the fighting continues, in which the following types of weapons are involved: armored vehicles, artillery, aviationmortars. More than 30 people died on both sides. This is official data.

At the same time, the Azerbaijani authorities stated that the Azerbaijani soldiers unilaterally cease armed clashes and start “settling in the liberated territories”. We are talking about several heights in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, the capture of which by the Azerbaijani army is refuted by the soldiers of the army of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Since yesterday, volunteers have been mobilized in the unrecognized republic of Transcaucasia.

      Like the Romans, "seek who benefits." Neither Armenia, nor Russia, nor Azerbaijan need this conflict, but Turkey is beneficial. We have to deal with them somehow, everything else is secondary.

        The main gain from the escalation of the conflict comes from Turkey, which has been fueling the conflict, and now trying to position itself as a peacemaker, and the United States, which has another reason to accuse Russia of supporting the "separatists" around the world.

        Since February 29, a NATO delegation has been in Yerevan (remember, this is the capital of Armenia). Summing up and agreeing on a new package of cooperation within the framework of the Individual Partnership Program.
        Armenia just needs to solve the issue of dependence on Russia in the security sphere ...

          Not a fact if the Armenians were sure that they would smash Azerbaijan.
          But they are not sure. We would be sure they would have begun to advance long ago.

          Since February 29, a NATO delegation has been sticking out in Yerevan (I recall, this is the capital of Armenia).


          A delegation of the NATO International Secretariat was in Armenia from February 29 to March 3, 2016.

            New ones will arrive. Three months ago, the Armenian President rode to Brussels, with NATO bosses "to grind the topic", even Mr. Stoltenberg praised for "deepening and expanding".

          Why is it not profitable? To distract Russia from the main destination in Syria, Armenia, by the way, if you forgot, the CSTO member and Gyumri, our base is standing and Russia, by the way, acts as a guarantor of a ceasefire and if something happens, Russia will have to take part in order to force Azerbaijan into peace or to pull away on both sides, both sides, not for nothing right now Erdogan says that Turkey and Russia should solve problems in the region and not for nothing right now, suddenly the killer of our pilot Oleg Peshkov is arrested in Izmir and a hint is made in our direction, they say you can give Russia, do not find too many coincidences. There are a lot of ears sticking out of the backstage and mattress and Turkish and hell knows which, but it's all against Russia.

            There is no "distraction" here, a direct armed clash is possible. Russia is obliged to get involved in the war on the side of Armenia, and then Turkey will have to intervene on the side of Azerbaijan. Otherwise, they will lose it ... And Turkey will not have a single friendly "hydrocarbon barrel" left. Do they need it?

              Turkey will not enter directly, it will throw up weapons, it will direct the militants, generally do what the Turks are doing now in Iraq and Syria with all sorts of barmaley, but they are unlikely to directly harness. And the Turks still have more than one Azerbaijan "hydrocarbon barrels" they do not feed badly from the barmaley and are playing hydrocarbon games with the same Iraq and Saud.

              1. Russia will intervene only by diplomatic methods. .. CSTO is too one-sided, like a one-goal game. . And on a fig we need it? In general, it is worth considering and revising the charter.
              2. Turkey, quietly moved the United States. Erdogan got everyone unpredictability and obstinacy. ..aki Khokhl Yakoy .. it is frankly drained. Replaces the recommended, it seems, Davutoglu. ..which will portray a democrat, a peacemaker and a liberal. ..and oh get, ryvolyutsiya! :-) but this one is not for long. ..
              3. Turkey will fall apart. ..Kurdish state to be. ..also at the expense of Syria and Iraq. ..axiom. But the USA, it seems, are hoping to acquire a new sphere of influence on BV.
              4. Great dill, perhaps officially, will fall apart sooner.

            Where is it about the fact that Russia has the right not to intervene if Azerbaijan attacks Armenia?
            And it will happen necessarily when Azerbaijan squeezes out NPOs, the Armenians simply will have no choice but to provoke it.

          One day, Karabakh will certainly become Azerbaijani again, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said. According to him, Turkey was next to Azerbaijan from the very beginning of the Karabakh crisis. "Turkey was next to Azerbaijan from the very beginning of the Karabakh crisis and will continue this. One day, Karabakh will certainly return to its real master, will again become Azerbaijani, ”Erdogan said at the congress of the Red Crescent Society in Ankara. Earlier, the Turkish Prime Minister and Turkish Foreign Minister announced support for Azerbaijan. In Armenia, these statements provoked a sharp negative reaction. ANKARA, April 4 - RIA News

        What are you talking about! Do you at least ask a question historically at the beginning, before scattering your pearls here. For this "garden" ares with aisers tore the throats of others and will fight for another dozen years. The Turks may warm their hands, but the former "our animals" generally side with harness there. It's like a situation when two dogs stand opposite each other and growl, you just throw the stick and that's it! scraps rushed through the back streets, and it doesn't matter who threw them.

      Well. With tongue removed. I just described in another article such a probable possibility. Infa, April 4: The Armenian Armed Forces from long-range artillery shot on a march a column of the military reserve of Azerbaijan (a fake would be better). They write that they destroyed everything that moved. But this is already very fraught with the escalation of hostilities. CSTO member country involved. Something they can cut through the land corridor to Russia.

          I did not expect such a development of the situation at the moment, it is not beneficial to anyone. One - due to oil prices and low gold reserves, the second - the territory behind them and graters with the Turks.
          So, ears in the west stick out. NATO has few problems in Ukraine, Near. East and North. Africa, home, etc .; they also decided to set fire here. Erdogan already kind of supports Aliyev. Oh and reckless, his home (Turkey) has few problems with the Kurds and all neighbors; so also here ... NATO (USA) is left to inherit only in Central Asia. Tajiks or Turkmens; Kirghiz like oppositionists presanuli (they wrote about some arrests and evidence against them, Dustum acts as a buffer among the Uzbeks. They would have been a swindler in Kazakhstan, but the National Academy of Sciences had already outplayed them (on March 20 they held 3 extraordinary parties in parliament laughing ), on the line of the jihadists, he gave the command "fas" (200 criminal cases against those who left for Syria, and locals are even checked for their appearance on the streets; and we did not have any major troubles). Therefore, I think that either Tajiks or Turkmens will be "checked". But, it seems to me, the root of everything lies in the creation of the CU and the EAEU, when the Russian Federation began to fight for living space and markets. As soon as we got started, they started playing for high stakes. Economic pressure and propaganda, then crises and sanctions, now fires at the borders are kindling and "knocking out" obvious candidates for the CU and the EAEU. Even the Turks did not regret it when resorts and hospitals were paid for the militants there (and now porridge is being brewed in Turkey).
          War sucks money out of the treasury with a vacuum cleaner. The CSTO, in my opinion, will wait until they run out of steam, and then either to the negotiating table or send peacekeepers. Ukraine is enough for us, so this fire needs to be extinguished as quickly as possible. Both depend on Russian transit and supplies, so the Kremlin can "arrange" things quickly. NK - mountainous area. There you can butt for the dominant skyscrapers for years. And no one can stand a war of attrition - I hope both understand this. It's just that even the BC will not be taken from where (I hope everyone will stop military contracts with fighters). Based on this, I hope to see both presidents at the negotiating table soon. hi

    Armenians and Azerbaijanis are fighting to the death, and the states, the West, and especially Turkey are rejoicing.
    They seem to have woken up a frozen conflict, right at the borders of Russia, and now Russia will again have to resolve the situation. The West will not lift a finger.
    I really want to hope that the top leadership of our state will once again show the whole world that there is no better peacemaker than Russia.
    And Armenians and Azerbaijanis want to say: - "Wake up! Think, who benefits from that you pour your blood and die" ???

      And how not to rejoice? The task is being solved. The match lit up. If earlier it was Ar.-Az’s business .. now Turkey can fit in, and we will answer. And burn-burn-clear, so as not to go out! And the states of the feet are rubbing. Oxygen urgently needs to be shut off to Azerbaijanis. Can I throw sugar in a gasoline?

    Further aggravation of hostilities can lead to unpredictable and irreversible consequences, up to a large-scale war. This, of course, will have an impact on security and stability not only in the South Caucasus, but also in the European region.

    yeah, that's right, indirect appeals to the "world community" began in the spirit of "harness yourself, otherwise it won't seem a little to everyone."
    Armenia recognizes the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh.

      It seems Azerbaijan is ready to go to the end ....
      Azerbaijan put forward a number of conditions for a ceasefire: the liberation of territories and the restoration of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, Hikmet Hajiyev, head of the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told RIA Novosti on Monday.
      But for this, in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions, Armenia must liberate all occupied territories, ensure full territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Azerbaijanrecognized internationally, ”said Hajiyev.

      According to him, Azerbaijan on April 3 decided to end the hostilities unilaterally.

      “But despite the peaceful position of Azerbaijan, the Armenian side continued to shell Azerbaijani positions and settlements. Shelling continues to this day. Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that the main reason for the tension in the situation is the occupation of Azerbaijani territories by Armenia, ”he stressed.

        To give up the territories occupied more than 20 years ago - to expose the Armenian population to deportation and ripping open their stomachs to old people, women and children (it all started from that). There will be a dead end worse than in Ukraine. Armenians remember the genocide of 2015. Slightly yielding to the Turks - they will cut everyone out. If you turn your back a little, you will immediately get a knife in the back. Azerbaijanis consider themselves southern Turks. Perhaps for them to consider them brothers.

      Either one side will thoroughly destroy the other and that will ask for peace, or a miracle will be shed and one of the parties will ask for peace just like that, without defeat.
      But Aliyev has a very serious problem, not related to the Armenians.

        The UAV of Azerbaijan struck a bus carrying volunteers from Armenia, RIA Novosti reported. At least six people were killed. In Yerevan, confirmed the death of five people.

        The aggravation of the confrontation between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh began on April 2. The participants in the conflict, for their part, report that the enemy’s losses account for hundreds. At the same time, the UN claims 30 dead.

        In turn, Russia and the United States called on the parties to immediately cease hostilities. This was discussed in a telephone conversation held at the initiative of the United States between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry. According to its results, it was agreed to combine the efforts of Russia, the United States and France in resolving the conflict.

Why did Armenia demonstratively roll out the "Elbrus" OTR, which flies 300 km with poor accuracy, that the NKR army has an OTR? Well, they will drag them to Stepanakert, and what will they launch at Azerbaijani tanks? I am neither for Armenians, nor for Azerbaijanis, both of them are worthy of each other. Shoigu won a call to the defense ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia, the contact group seems to be gathering on Nagorno-Karabakh, maybe they will calm down.

        Azerbaijani ISIS detachment leaves Raqqa to fight in NKR

        It is reported that about 60 terrorists returned to their homeland through Turkey.

        According to a military source, the Azerbaijani detachment of the ISIS * terrorist group, numbering from 50 to 70 militants, left Syrian Raqqa. It is reported that radicals from Transcaucasia through Turkey returned to Azerbaijan to participate in hostilities in the Karabakh conflict zone.
        Because of this, a real scandal erupted in the "administrative capital of terrorists" in Syria, because ISIS militants are very sensitive to discipline violation, especially against the backdrop of the recent successes of the Syrian army.

        It is worth noting that extremists from Azerbaijan and earlier in the ranks of ISIS were accused of betrayal. So, in January 2015, terrorists executed the field commander Siraj Azeri, suspecting him of espionage.

    Sargsyan, who are you playing for?
    For the Armenians living on the territory of NGOs, I think. To us, too, "the whole civilized world" insists that Donbass is not our business - the Ukrainians will figure it out themselves. Or have you already forgotten?

      That's just the point that I did not forget. Now it’s starting to blaze again in the Donbas, in Syria, again, nothing has ended yet, and then there is Nagorno-Karabakh and Russia shouldn’t lose everywhere, they circle the adversaries in a circle.

    Judging by the statements of Azerbaijan, this is for a long time ... In accordance with UN Security Council resolutions, Armenia should liberate all occupied territories, ensure the full territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Azerbaijan

    Let's see how long. In my opinion, the Azerbaijani army should not last so long. Not a slingshot, the battle is on.

    And why do some people think that the CSTO is a copy of NATO? Has anyone bothered to read the Charter? There is no chapter 5 analogue. Decisions are made by the Council and, as far as I remember, there is no question of any automatic entry into the war on the side of a CSTO member.

      Still how it goes. Everything is spelled out in the CSTO much stricter than in NATO in the notorious "Fifth Chapter"

      If one of the participating States is subjected to aggression (an armed attack threatening security, stability, territorial integrity and sovereignty), it will be considered by the participating States as aggression (armed attack threatening security, stability, territorial integrity and sovereignty) to all states parties to this Agreement.

            This is a contract, and I about the charter. Yes, in general, not the point.
            Armenia has been in the CSTO since its founding on May 15, 1992.
            The war in Karabakh was already in full swing and ended in '94.
            And what, did the CSTO take part?

        For the CSTO to have the right to intervene, according to the CSTO Charter unanimous the decision of all its members. I suppose everyone sees that Nazarbayev, Rakhmonov and Atambayev are already at a low start and they are just beating their hooves with excitement to start helping Armenia lol

    Russia will be forced to provide military assistance to Armenia, otherwise the reputation suffers greatly, and Russia has almost no friends. Azerbaijan can be sacrificed and blocked, especially since we are at war with Turkey. It is much worse if Russia simply watches the developing conflict. But on the other hand, Russia does not need to rush, we must wait for the ayzers to hit the territory of Armenia and only then react harshly. While they are only hitting Nagorno-Karabakh, we will modestly stand aside, since the great war of Russia is NOT NEEDED.

      "Russia will just watch the developing conflict." This is the best option for us and the only correct one - the country's leadership understands this perfectly and therefore will fight in this war exclusively by diplomatic methods.

    In order to shake Russian positions in Armenia by the hands of Azerbaijan. In response to Russia's actions in Syria. They already believed that the north of Syria is already theirs and this is the case! Turks want to divert Russia to Syria in Armenian affairs. yes hi

    Bara fight, at lackeys forelocks are torn. Smart learn from the mistakes of others, fools from their own. Azerbaijan didn’t even teach their own mistakes. They will be deployed on both sides by several hundred military personnel and will remain in their previous positions. But Russia will have to wage war on the diplomatic front, no matter what the third one gets into. Unfortunately, Armenia and Azerbaijan have long been looking in the direction of rich Uncle Sam, Russia did not live up to expectations, and by themselves peacefully agree with each other weakly. So they are looking for a wealthy sponsor. And who feeds the girl, he dances. The Russian leadership needs to look for a non-standard solution and at that very quickly.

    That’s what makes us different from other nations is, to the point of cloying, the willingness to help everyone and reconcile everyone. Why should it flutter Well internationalists have multiplied, I won’t save any! Everything! one-goal international is over!
    _Ah Russia must! Russia will get into a conflict!
    And with x ... do we owe them something, one asks? Not small already, when they separated, they didn’t ask.
    And if Russia owes something, then I will answer you. Collect one and a half lemma "volunteers" from both sides of our markets for a vigorous hair dryer and forward to help the historical homeland in the so-called business. liberation. Enough, pumped. Today the tit has shrunk and there won't be enough for everyone. Themselves, yourself somehow, but observe the edges. But when someone starts to swim for the buoys, then we, well, say, fatherly, not out of malice ...

    I hope you are joking like that. We are really at war with Turkey - literally !!!
    Another thing is that no one has declared this war, no one has yet shot at each other, although the Turks fired and hit our plane, killing our pilot. Prohibited ISIS is both a weapon and a cheap supplier of oil to Turkey, and as we know, we are fighting a war with ISIS, in fact, Turkey, and Turkey perceives the actions of Russia in Syria. Here you can speak multifaceted, but why not express obvious things.

    A very interesting and non-standard move: in our markets, finally, our sellers will appear, and the former, i.e. their sellers certainly will not want to fight (business, however ..) and will unanimously oppose a military solution to the problem.
