News.Az interviews Amanda Paul, policy analyst on the EU Eastern Neighbourhood, Russia, Turkey & Eurasia at the European Policy Centre, Brussels.
2013 is the year of Presidential elections in Armenia and Azerbaijan. Does it mean that one shouldn’t hope for a progress in the Karabakh settlement during upcoming year?
Over the last couple of years progress in the Nagorno-Karabakh peace talks has become increasingly elusive. 2012 as 2011, was a lost year with the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia having last met in January 2012.
With negotiations totally deadlocked, tensions have risen along with negative rhetoric and increasing military skirmishes and saber-rattling across the Line of Contact. Rising tensions are directly linked to the lack of progress in the talks. Unfortunately, given this impasse and the fact that Presidential elections will take place in Armenia (February) and Azerbaijan (October), progress in 2013 does not seem very likely. Rather we may expect a continuation of the fragile status quo. Read the rest of this entry »

News.Az interviews Jean-Yves Camus, research fellow at Institute for International and Strategic Relations (IRIS), Paris.
What do you think about future of Azerbaijan, a country with Islamic values and European integration as a priority of the foreign policy?
Azerbaijan is a country whose Islamic values are at the same time deep-rooted and tolerant. It is certainly an asset for its foreign policy, as radical Islam is more and more perceived by European public opinions as a serious threat. Is European integration a goal? I am not sure that Azerbaijan should aim at becoming an EU member State and anyway, until the EU accepts Turkish membership, I do not even think it is possible. Azerbaijan is, by virtue of its geography and history, a bridge between Europe and Asia, between the Muslim world and the West. It is far better to be a strategic bridge than to be a new member of the EU-club. Read the rest of this entry »
