The West, led by the US, doesn’t want to accept the new reality in the South Caucasus, and its main goal is to oust Russia not only from Armenia, but also from the entire region, Director of Report News Agency Fuad Huseynaliyev said in an interview with ARB 24 TV channel.
Speaking about the possibilities of influence of the West, including the US, in the South Caucasus, the head of the news agency noted that the US intends to pursue a policy of ousting Russia from the region: “The negotiations held by the United States on the supply of grain, military equipment and nuclear energy to Armenia for the Metsamor nuclear power plant serve this goal. A similar policy was actually pursued by France. Subsequently, this policy was continued by the European Union, and now by the United States. From now on, Azerbaijan won’t be present on peace platforms where the EU and the US are.”
Huseynaliyev noted that Western pressure on Armenia is delaying the signing of the peace treaty: “Azerbaijan has established its sovereignty over its entire territory. There are no controversial issues left. As for the Zangazur Corridor, serious work is currently underway to open the road based on an agreement with Iran. Azerbaijan has no territorial claims to Armenia. Taking all this into account, it is safe to say that Nikol Pashinyan, without any reason, makes groundless statements against Azerbaijan, creates artificial obstacles to the signing of a peace treaty.”
The director added that the West acts as the patron of Armenia, which puts it in the position of countries such as Ukraine and Syria: “The statehood of Armenia is in big question.”
