Fooling OSCE MG Co-Chairs Much Harder than UN Representatives, said Vladimir Kazimirov
“Azeri diplomacy disposition to go to various international institutions and spend efforts instead of focusing on the talks within the OSCE is not occasional. There are several goals, the most important of these being prolonging the talks and searching for propaganda infusion within organizations that are little aware with the course of the Karabakh conflict,” former co-chair of OSCE MG for settlement of the NK conflict, Ambassador Vladimir Kazimirov told a PanARMENIAN
“This is not the first time official Baku departs from actual settlement tools. It is covered by cock-and-bull story about the future power of Azerbaijan. Both helps pulling wool over the eyes of those, who expect the soonest resolution of the conflict, first of all Azerbaijan’s own internally displaced persons. Besides, fooling OSCE MG co-chairs is harder than representatives of states, who know little about Transcaucasia and the Karabakh conflict. There are more such states in the UN, than in the OSCE. There are also countries, whose votes can be gathered by appeals to Muslim solidarity,” he remarked.
At that the Russian diplomat noted that it is easier to convince the UN that keeping others’ lands occupied is odious. “It is easier to conceal from them more odious refusals of Baku to cease hostilities in 1992-1994 and even several failures of agreements over that matter. Accumulating minor propaganda scores is a fragmentary and peripheral occupation, it cannot speed up settlement of the conflict. It is not that much important how it will tell on actual search of compromise. Especially that partial publication of the settlement scheme by the mediators has made “game in the dark” with their own people harder and made moving back. This should be either compensated by something, or covered. The internal “logic” of foreign policy maneuvers of Azerbaijan looks like this. In other words, it is seeking for effectiveness at the expense of effectiveness,” Kazimirov underscored.
