“We need full transparency and the active involvement of civil society experts into the negotiations process,” – Azerbaijani political expert, Agmad Alili said.

EDNews.net reports that Ahmad Alili, a political expert in Caucasian Policy Analytical Center touched upon the recent Nagorno-Karabakh negotiations process in his social network.

Ahmad Alili noted that the statement made by Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov on the agreement on the peaceful solution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict caused interesting discussion in Armenian and Azerbaijani societies.

“Mr. Lavrov’s recent statement on the agreement to resolve the NK conflict caused interesting discussions in ARM and AZE societies. The Pashinyan team is under heavy criticism for not delivering the promises during the Velvet Revolution. AZE MFA Mammadyarov criticized “soft approach” on ARM MFA Mnatsakanyan’s responds to RUS MFA statements,” – Alili stressed.

Azerbaijani political expert assessed the importance of “Constructive ambiguity” in the adjustment of disputes between conflict sides, and how this concept could play role in the solution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

“Constructive ambiguity’ – a well-established concept in the diplomatic negotiations – might help the conflicting sides to reach an agreement and then break it on to the public. It helps the negotiation parties to hold dialogues with minimum public pressure. Nevertheless, when there is a protracted conflict such as the NK conflict, conflicting sides start portraying the negotiations process in a manner that suits their interests most. That is what happened to NK diplomatic negotiations process – As time passes, ‘Constructive ambiguity’ transforms into ‘Destructive ambiguity,” – Alili noted.

According to view of political expert, it is time to gradually open the doors for the civil society experts and reveal the exact content of the document to the population.

“Keeping the public informed is the part of the ‘Preparing Population for Peace’ (PPP) strategy. If the aim is sustainable peace, society should be aware of the ongoing negotiations and hence avoid the spread of fake news,” – he added.
