Terrorism remains an obstacle to peace in the South Caucasus, French expert Maxime Gauin said in his article ‘Assessing the Current Threat of Armenian Terrorism’, Report informs.

“Despite the consistent willingness of Azerbaijan and a series of positive signs given by Armenia since the end of the Second Karabakh War, a peace treaty between Baku and Yerevan remains elusive. So does the normalization of relations between Ankara and Yerevan. Much of the responsibility for this suboptimal state of affairs lies with extremist elements of Armenian society operating both within the country and in the diaspora,” Gauin says.
