How Pashinyan fooled himself in Munich Security Conference

World A- A A+

Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan delivered strange messages in the debate with the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at Munich Security Conference.

Pashinyan noted that in order to solve a Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, it is important to make a revolution in the negotiation process. According to his opinion, the revolution could bring new ideas bolstering the solution of the conflict and the restoration of peace between the peoples of Armenia, Azerbaijan and so-called Nagorno-Karabakh.

“When I became Prime Minister of Armenia through non-violent revolution, I understood that it isn’t possible to solve thirty-years lasting conflict with one or two steps. I thought that for solving this problem, we need to have revolutions, especially micro and mini revolutions,” Pashinyan stressed.

It is very interesting that what Prime Minister of Armenia wanted to mean, while he was using the concept of micro and mini revolutions.  It could seem strange to any talented person when he or she hears micro and mini revolutions in negotiations processes. In modern politics, no head of the state, who is involved in negotiations on the solution of conflicts, has used the concept of revolutions, and there is no theory or definition in international relations that lay the notion of revolution in the subjects on conflict and peace. However, there is one definition in International Relations, called “Conflict Resolution,” which is directed to provide the basis for the settlement of conflicts and the formation of peace among territorial, ethnic and religious entities. There is no still an alternative to the “Conflict Resolution” definition.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in his debate with President Ilham Aliyev had used the term of revolutions many times, but he couldn’t clarify what he means. Nobody could understand his opinions.

“Any solution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be acceptable to the people of Armenia, the people of so-called Nagorno-Karabakh and the people of Azerbaijan. Why this is Micro revolution,” Pashinyan noted.

Of course, the political solution should be fair and transparent for all sides, both Azerbaijanis and Armenians, which could generate stability and peace in the region. However, Pashinyan did not explain what should be acceptable to Armenians and Azerbaijanis, and he did not respond to what conditions should be promoted that bring both Caucasian nations together. He had just repeated his opinion, which isn’t possible to perceive.  President Ilham Aliyev asked him to explain what acceptability means.

While watching debate carefully between Nikol Pashinyan and Ilham Aliyev at the Munich Security Conference, we see that Pashinyan fools himself with his opinions. His views on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict make everybody to laugh at him.  He could not provide any normal and efficient argument on the political solution of that conflict.  When he argued with the President of Azerbaijan, some people in the audience were trying to leave.

Nikol Pashinyan could be a strong leader of the revolutionary movement, which has helped him to take control of the government, but, in fact, he does not have the normal capability to represent his country in negotiations and debates. He has zero talent in foreign policy and diplomacy. He does not know what conflict resolution means. He does not have the capacity and tendency to participate in format negotiations for the solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Even he has not looked through any information about UN Security and General Assembly resolutions, and decisions made by other international organizations, which demand Armenia to stop the occupation and respect the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

In the end, it should be noted that there is another political solution on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which is called revised Madrid Principles, has been shaped for two times in the format of the OSCE Minsk Group. President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev during debate at the Munich Security Conference, in response to Russian journalist’s question, emphasized important points confirming the document of Madrid Principles, which includes the liberation of the occupied districts surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, the return of Azerbaijani IDPs to their territories, the resettlement and later the determination of the status of Nagorno-Karabakh.
