The USA is main initiator of various ways of Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement, as well as most active mediator of the negotiation process, Azerbaijani analyst Arif Yunusov is quoted as saying by a REGNUM correspondent at The Caucasus in Russian Policy: History and the Present International Conference organized by Caucasus Research Center at Russian Foreign Ministrys Moscow State University of International Relations (MGIMO).

According to him, Russian co-Chair of OSCE Minsk Group Yuri Merzlyakov, who, according Yunusov, “sabotaged the talks,” did not practically support activity of the American side. At the same time, Yunusov stated that American diplomacy did not succeed in achieving any results to settle the Karabakh conflict, and, according to Yunusov, American co-Chair Steven Mann is to be dismissed, receiving a new appointment.

Also, the Baku analyst mentioned processes, which develop around Iran, as well as Azerbaijans attitudes towards to them. According to him, official Baku has unofficially agreed with Washington to take part in anti-Iranian coalition, offering their airdromes and other communications to satisfy US armys requirements. Also, according to him, main part of Azerbaijani public opinion is categorically again such decision, because it realizes risks, which will become real, if Iran is attacked. “Iranian authorities directly stated that if the Azerbaijani side supports Americans, they will attack on 24 most important objects in Azerbaijan, including BTC oil pipeline, which will cause ecological disaster, and even, maybe on Baku residential areas,” the analyst stressed. Also, he informed that despite that, seven airdromes have unofficially been handed over to Americans, and appropriate conditions and infrastructure are prepared to settle US servicemen in the south of Azerbaijan. The analyst pointed out that there is danger of refugees afflux from Iran in the light of possible attack against the country. Already now, according to Yunusovs information, confirmed, in his words, by the Iranian ambassador in Baku, up to 50,000 Iranian citizens have settled in the Azerbaijani territory.
