Ilham Aliyev and Nikol Pashinyan will meet – to achieve lasting peace or a new war in the region?!

The leaders of the two countries were expected to meet against the background of the recent clashes on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.

Because there are a number of issues to be discussed between the parties.

However, the meeting was expected to be held in Moscow with the mediation of Russia. It seems that there is a competition between Europe and Russia on this issue. Russia and the West have been competing for peace in the South Caucasus and resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict for years, and this race has intensified since last year’s 44-day war.

Moscow’s more active role in resolving the conflict does not satisfy the other co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, the United States and France. In this regard, the main goal of the West is to organize a meeting of the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan and reach an agreement between the parties.
In fact, there is a need for dialogue between the parties today, regardless of who the mediator is. Because a number of unresolved issues remain between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

First of all, the demarcation of the borders between the two countries is a matter of dispute. It is necessary to determine the boundaries for the signing of a lasting peace agreement between the parties. And I think this issue will be discussed at the meeting of the leaders of the two countries.

In addition, Armenia does not want to agree on the implementation of the November 10 agreement. From time to time, Armenian officials give different interpretations of the terms of this agreement. We are talking about the Zangazur corridor, which is one of the main conditions of the November 10 tripartite agreement.

Armenia sees the opening of the Zangazur corridor as a threat to its state independence and sovereignty. However, along with connecting Azerbaijan and Turkey, this corridor means the opening of land relations between Armenia and Russia and Iran. This is of great importance for the welfare of the Armenian people.
