The EU foreign ministers should know better than to believe unsubstantiated one-sided comments, whether from Pashinyan or from anyone else, US journalist, analyst in the sphere of national security, lawyer Irina Tsukerman, said commenting on the recent statements of EU top diplomat Josep Borrell regarding Azerbaijan.
She said the statements follow PM Pashinyan's appearance at the Paris Peace Summit, a propaganda line straight from the mouth of the Armenian diaspora lobbies, which have been pushing the same idea for several months.
As an example, Tsukerman cited a publication in Politico which attributed similar words to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken that was categorically rejected later by the State Department.
"It seems odd for them [the EU foreign ministers] to devote resources and to undermine trust over ambiguous and clearly fictitions and grandiose statements from someone who has proven unreliable," she believes.
The expert suggested that one of the possible reasons for this is that some of the ministers are less concerned about Baku’s actions and more concerned that Russia is trying to stage another provocation amid tensions, and are strengthening monitoring mechanisms in Armenia for those reasons.
"Another possibility is that they want to make sure Pashinyan returns to the process," Tsukerman said, adding that to guarantee this, they want to demonstrate that all statements by the Armenian side, all its concerns are taken seriously and are investigated which means that Armenia has nothing to worry about.
However, the expert believes that Baku should put an end to this rhetoric and to disclose to EU the months of empty talk from the US Armenian lobbyists who have been trying to sow distrust in the process and to discredit Baku.
