/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "At present peaceful settlement of the Nagorno
Karabakh conflict is not possible," stated Director of International
Security and Energy Programs of Nixon Center Zeyno Baran. "If the
parties were ready to compromise, they would pursue another foreign
and domestic policy," the expert believes. "Possible operation against
Iran may have a negative impact on Azerbaijan, however assessing the
scale of that impact is still hard," she said. When commenting on
Iran's negative stance over the project of an oil pipeline between
Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan on the bottom of the Caspian, the expert
noted that Teheran cannot prevent its implementation, reports IA
Regnum referring to Turan agency.
