PEJOURNAL – An expert on Eurasia said about the reasons for the border tensions between the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia: “First of all, it should be said that this conflict, unlike the previous conflicts, did not take place in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, but outside it.”
The cause of the conflict goes back to the differences between the two countries in the past. There has always been an exchange of fire due to very small conflicts or minor tensions between the two countries.
In response to the question why these conflicts between the two countries have increased in the current situation? He added that the main reason for these tensions is Israeli movements in the Caucasus region.
Armenian opening of its embassy in Jerusalem:
Almost a month or two months ago, news and information were published in the regional media that Israel had provided military information to the Armenians in exchange for the Armenian opening of its embassy in the occupied territories (Jerusalem).
This Eurasian analyst stated: “In fact, the leak of the military information of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the access of Armenia to this information due to the Israeli action in the meantime, is the cause of the fire in the current situation in the region.”
As a result, the current tensions and conflicts, despite their historical roots and territorial and ethnic divisions, are at least due to Israeli intervention in the region and could have dire consequences.
If the parties fail to manage and control these conflicts, it will certainly have dangerous consequences.
Although this conflict seems to be under control as it has been in the past, it will continue to have consequences in both countries.
Referring to the Israeli intention to move information between the two countries, despite being aware of the historical tension between them, he concluded: “The Israelis were in fact seeking to give the Armenian side a concession to open their embassy in the occupied territories (Jerusalem).”
The Armenians were supposed to do so in early April this year, but due to protests in Islamic countries, they practically postponed the issue and have not opened their embassy to date.
As a result, the Israelis wanted to persuade the Armenian side to open an embassy in the occupied territories immediately.
