The degree of the conflict has grown in many aspects and this is a loss both for Azerbaijan and Armenia, former Advisor to U.S. President Donald Trump on National Security Affairs John Bolton told Armenian ArmNews TV Channel asked what he meant by stating during his visit to Armenia that Armenia’s PM was in brilliant position to make decisive decision in NK conflict issue.
“I was registering the fact of living in a democratic society. When a new leader of a country assumes the post, it is a period to see whether international conflicts, especially those in impasse, have an opportunity to break the stalemate. During the preliminary meetings there were encouraging signs, but it did not work during a year after my visit, and the degree of the conflict, in reality, has grown in many aspects. I think it is a loss for the two peoples – Azerbaijan and Armenia,” he said, adding that he understands that the settlement of the conflict is rather complicated.
“I consider Caucasus a core region not only for those living there but the USA and the whole world. In reality, it is a very dangerous surrounding because of few of your neighbors. I would like the USA to focus more on this issue. I would like us to be more useful, but there are three small countries there surrounded with one big and two problematic from the South. I think the presence of the USA from outside increases the regional security, as we are not limited geographically,” he said.
