22 September 2008 [15:20] - TODAY.AZ
Famous Azerbaijani political scientist Vuqar Seidov commented on the recent announcements of Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and Defense minister Seyran Ohanuan.
As reported previously, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan announced that in any referendum, which can be held soon, the Karabakh Armenians will speak for cessation from Azerbaijan.

"The whole world recognized that the population of Nagorno Karabakh consists of two communities and the issue of the return of Azerbaijanis to their homes in Nagorno Karabakh is not removed from the agenda of peaceful talks", said the Azerbaijani political scientist.

Commenting on Serzh Sargsyan's announcement that Karabakh Armenians may demonstrate will to live within Azerbaijan in case investments are made into Karabakh, Seidov said: "Let Karabakh Armenians first recognize themselves as part of Azerbaijan and they will get such large investments, which will even make Armenia jealous towards Karabakh Armenians and it will itself develop an intention to knock at Azerbaijan's doors".

Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan has previously said that in the result of reforms they will get an army, capable of resisting aggression, targeting Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh.

"None of Armenia's neighbors intend to attack this country and the phrase "aggression against Nagorno Karabakh" is completely absurd as aggression can be against a sovereign state, but not a part of one's own state. Aggression is a forced annexation of a part of the country but not the return of this part into the same state", said Seidov, commenting on Ohanyan's statement.
