"Armenia violates international law norms by resettling ethnic Armenians from Lebanon to Nagorno-Karabakh," Russian military expert Igor Korotchenko told the Russian Bureau of Report.
Moreover, the expert expressed doubt that Lebanese Armenians will voluntarily want to live in Karabakh: "The fact is that the Armenians who live in Lebanon are quite well - off people. Therefore, I have strong doubts that they will want to move from Lebanon to Nagorno-Karabakh, where there is no status or opportunities for economic activity. They are unlikely to decide to exchange Lebanon for Nagorno-Karabakh, although it is purely indicative that Yerevan will strive for this. "It is unlikely that they will decide to exchange Lebanon for Nagorno-Karabakh, although, Yerevan will strive for this."
Moreover, according to the expert, such an Armenia policy that contradicts the international plan's norms harms the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement negotiation process.
"The negotiation process is not going on anyway. It is simply called the "negotiation process". If Baku has a position to negotiate, then Armenia desires to maintain the existing status quo for as long as possible. There is no negotiation process in this way. In any case, any additional problem will become a stumbling block to the negotiations, "Korotchenko said.
