The “3 + 3” format is entirely Turkish, which was first initiated after the Russian-Georgian war in 2008, and now Georgia has clearly stated that it will not participate because of its problems with Russia, because Georgia realizes that Abkhazia will be discussed there. The issue of Ossetia 168 TV “Review” Dean of YSU Chair of Archeology, Turkologist Ruben Melkonyan told the program.
According to Melkonyan, the issue of Artsakh’s status in “3 + 3” cannot be bypassed.
“Pashinyan’s words that they are ready for discussions, if they do not interfere with other dimensions, have nothing to do with reality. The key emphasis of this dimensional dimension is the following: a conflict-free region. “One of the conflicts in this region is the issue of Abkhazia, Ossetia, the other is the issue of Artsakh, in fact, Georgia realizes this, does not participate in the discussion, and Armenia participates,” Melkonyan said.
According to the Turkologist, the goal of the “3 + 2” measure is to solve the existing problems through regional powers, but Armenia can not solve anything because it is not a subject.
“No one asks Armenia’s opinion, the situation and our weakness force us to participate in this. There is also a certain Russian-Turkish compulsion, because this is beneficial for Russia, the issue of the railway can be discussed here. “Russia must take part in this in order to maintain balance,” he said.
According to Melkonyan, Nikol Pashinyan can not disagree with this measure, because “3 + 2” assumes the opening of roads in the region, which means providing a corridor through Syunik.
“During negotiations, the states usually have something to give and take. Armenia has nothing to offer at the negotiating table, does not have the resources to reject the demands. “We find ourselves in a situation where it seems that we are dealing with a pre-planned project, which is becoming a reality, to which the Armenian state is being sacrificed with a very rough egg,” Melkonyan said.
