ACNIS WARNS OF DANGERS FROM BAKU’S NEW “DIPLOMACY OF WAR” IN INTERVIEW WITH AZERBAIJAN’S NEWS.AZ

Yerevan—In an interview with the Azerbaijani News.Az news agency, ACNIS Director Richard Giragosian warned of the dangers to regional security and stability posed by Azerbaijan’s new policy of a “diplomacy of war that “seeks to pressure not only Armenia, but to also exert new pressure on the OSCE and the West” marked by rising tension and escalating attacks along the “line of contact.”  Giragosian further stressed that there was “an even greater danger of a return to hostilities and, perhaps, even outright war,” explaining that “what is most likely, however, is not an official declaration of war, but a possible ‘war by accident,’ where limited skirmishes or attacks quickly spiral out of control and trigger a much wider and more serious offensive,” stemming from the “new Azerbaijani policy of using the threat of force as a new policy to increase pressure and express its frustration with the (Karabagh) peace process.”
