PanARMENIAN.Net - Presently there are no preconditions for a quick
settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, an Armenian expert said.

"Azerbaijan will only sign a document which "says nothing", i.e a
document the contents of which is vague enough to leave this country
a room to maneuver," Alexander Iskandaryan, director of Caucasus
Institute, told a press conference in Yerevan on September 1.

Commenting on Russia's involvement in the process, he noted that
after the 2008 war Russia intensified activity in the region.

In early July, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov conveyed
President Dmitry Medvedev's personal message and recommendations
on the Karabakh conflict resolution to Presidents of Armenia and
Azerbaijan. The message followed the failure to reach any agreement
during the trilateral presidential meeting in Kazan on June 24.
