Baku believes that Yerevan has weakened in recent years and Armenian leader is weak, political scientist, former head of the Israeli Liaison Bureau Yaakov Kedmi said on September 30 on the air of the Vesti FM radio.
According to Kedmi, a conflict situation may go beyond a purely verbal ideological altercation and come to hositlities only if the balance of power changes. “Any situation is the result of the established balance of power,” the political scientist said.
“From Azerbaijan’s point of view, this conflict can be solved only by forcing Armenia to make concessions,” Kedmi said. He added that the Azerbaijan’s current government sees Pashinyan as a small pawn, who was brought to power in Armenia as a result of a coup, similar to that which has failed in Minsk.
“From Azerbaijan’s point of view, Armenia is weaker today than it used to be, with its leader is a weak appointee of external forces,” the political scientist said.
At the same time, he stressed that the current leadership of Armenia, without disrupting relations with Russia, brought them to a point where the probability of effective Russian support to Armenia is less.
“One must give a credit to the Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev, how deeply he understands the situation and how clearly he expresses his thoughts. In Russian and English, he expresses himself perfectly,” Kedmi said.
“Turkey will support any actions against Russia as long as it is not directly involved in them,” the political scientist noted.
Earlier Kedmi noted that if Russia hadn’t returned the Crimea, it wouldn’t be Syria now, because with the loss of Sevastopol, it would be hard for the Black Sea Fleet to act.
