Azerbaijan will have to "force Armenia to peace" should the latest
round of Russia-brokered talks fail, Azerbaijan's ambassador to Russia
has said.

"If this issue still remains unresolved after Russia's intervention,
Russia's and personally Mr Medvedev's reputation will be at
stake. Therefore, they [Armenians] should think about it," Polad
Bulbuloglu said in a telephone interview with ANS TV.

"In recent years, forcing to peace is used as a political term. If
the talks yield no results, it seems that [Azerbaijan] too will have
to use this... I do not see any other option," Bulbuloglu said.

"Forcing to peace" was the term Russia used in its war against Georgia
in August 2008.
