The British media's recent interest in the Nagorno Karabakh conflict
might be explained by the need to propose new plans and mechanisms,
an Armenian expert has said.

"The stalemate over Karabakh requires new solutions and approaches.

Serious media outlets address such problems upon facing the need to
propose a mechanism or a political plan," political analyst Hrant
Melik Shahnazaryan told Tert.am.

He further noted the foreign media might also pursue financial
interests in their propaganda.

"But that's more characteristic to the Russian media, rather than BBC.

Although it's quite possible that Britain, as well as Western Europe
might have received instructions from Azerbaijan," he said.

This comes after the Russian Service of BBC News conducted an
interview with Armenia's first president and the leader of the
opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) Levon Ter-Petrosyan who
spoke mainly about the Karabakh issue. The Financial Times later
addressed the problem in an article. Yesterday, BBC News Russian
released a video material devoted to the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
