Albert Bazeyan considers that the latest statement of the RA President
on the possibility of Armenia's recognizing the independence of
Nagorno-Karabakh is dangerous and untimely. According to Bazeyan,
Armenia will present itself as having a deconstructive position,
therefore the pressures will be directed toward Armenia, which Albert
Bazeyan considers illogical, since it is Azerbaijan that consistently
excludes any concessions.

"It is obvious that that there are no levers of agreement in the
negotiations process. These will never be found unless Nagorno-Karabakh
is presented as a subject of talks," Bazeyan considers.

According to the Head of the Republican faction Galust Sahakyan, the
settlement of the Karabakh conflict is not the problem of Karabakh
Armenians only, it is an all-Armenian issue.

Galust Sahakyan considers that the party more powerful economically
will become the winner in this conflict. The recent violations of the
cease-fire regime escalated talks about the possible resumption of
the war. Galust Sahakyan does not consider such a threat is realistic,
since Azerbaijan should be interested in the maintenance of peace as
much as Armenia.
