Financial Times: Russia agrees to transfer part of Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijan


The Russian president announced his readiness to facilitate the transfer to Azerbaijan of seven regions of Nagorno-Karabakh, previously occupied by Armenian troops, in order to resolve the long-term military conflict in this territory. The American edition of the Financial Times writes about Moscow's initiatives to pacify both sides of the confrontation.


The transfer of the disputed territories surrounding the enclave is the main stumbling block between the parties to an armed conflict. Putin's statement is very opportune - it sounded in the days of intensified diplomatic efforts to end the war that claimed about 5 lives. In addition, tens of thousands of peaceful residents of Nagorno-Karabakh were forced to flee their homes to escape the bombing.

I must say that our position is absolutely open regarding the possibility of transferring these five and two more (adjacent) regions to Azerbaijan.

- noted the head of the Russian Federation, stressing the need to ensure the special regime of the Karabakh region and its ties with Yerevan.

Vladimir Putin also mentioned the importance of maintaining the balance of interests of the peoples of Azerbaijan and Armenia, while saying that there are no simple solutions in the settlement of such difficult territorial-historical disputes.

      Russia never considered Karabakh to be Armenian, if anything ... laughing only if the Americans send their aircraft carrier to the shores of Armenia as to Georgia ... and that did not help.

        Armenia itself has never considered Karabakh to be Armenian. That is why NKR is an unrecognized republic.

            The question is not for me - I am never Armenian and I don’t know the history of the Armenian people.

    I don't know the history of the Armenian people.

    Well, at least you know the sacred Armenian mountain Ararat?
    There, as it were, your Noah (Noah) was building his ark. )

      From the first day of the existence of their state, the Israelis independently decided their own security issues, and therefore survived.

    Why should the Americans "send" it? Are they NATO members? Or do the US consider Armenia their strategic ally?

    Aha, very little - after that, the foreign ministers of both countries, instead of Moscow, "sawed off" to negotiate in ... Geneva! wassat

      In fact, The Financial Times has long been controlled by Russia. And voices Moscow's thoughts on behalf of the West. You can find out about this from the former resident of the KGB PGU in the UK - O.A. Gordievsky. Now a defector. In his joint with Andrew and the most monumental work on the KGB "KGB from Lenin to Gorbachev."

    Was it worth even indirectly, but to support someone from the "former" ... 7 regions did not fall from the sky at one time, they were taken by blood. And how much will this freeze this "baida"? then let them give guarantees that the claims were lifted on the Karabakh

    But what can I say, what empires have collapsed - Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian, Tsarist Russian, soon the American, and maybe the Russian, and then some kind of Karabakh, from which the third world war may begin, how the first world, with one shot of a sick student.

    Nothing new. These proposals, moreover, 1: 1 were voiced by D.A. Medvedev back in 2010 at the talks in Kazan. The parties shook hands. But during the signing of the final version, Ilham Aliyev noticed a fraud on the part of Serzh Sargsyan: a reservation appeared that Armenian troops remained in two regions. A hot Caucasian dispute between two hot horsemen began. Medvedev spat in hearts and left. Armenia overheated the situation, and Azerbaijan wasted no time. The worst thing is that on the very first day of the conflict, opinions were expressed at the level of the "Reporter" website, including mine, that everything will end with the transfer of seven districts. Why did you need to bomb the cities and kill so many people? !
