On July 12, Armenia launched attacks on the border with Azerbaijan in Tovuz. As a result of Armenian provocations, Azerbaijan lost 11 servicemen including 1 general.

The situation in Tovuz posed a great threat to the peaceful resolution of Nagorno-Karabakh.

American political analyst and writer at the same time former CIA analyst, Paul A. Goble shared his views on the current clashes with EDNews.net.

It is worthy to note that armed clashed started in the border not frontline along Karabakh.

American analyst thinks that Armenia is testing the stances of Russia.

"Armenia wanted to be sure that Russia is still in its corner and will prevent Azerbaijan from using its larger army to respond," he noted.

Paul Goble excludes any special geopolitical meaning behind the scene. He also stated that a prolonged war is not so expectable.

"I can’t even imagine how that could occur. Russia would be very clear about the need to prevent that from  happening."

Political analyst also added that no other powers are going to get involved at least for the foreseeable future.

"The fact that Azerbaijan lost senior officers means that it will be almost impossible to achieve anything in talks in the near future. Azerbaijanis will see standing tough as a point of national honor," Paul Goble concluded.
