Armenia-Azerbaijan Clashes: ‘Yerevan Doesn’t Expect India’s Support Despite Backing Delhi On Kashmir’

NEW DELHI: “India doesn’t need to articulate clear support” to Armenia in military clashes with Azerbaijan despite Yerevan’s public support on Kashmir and Baku siding with Pakistan and Turkey on the issue, says former Indian Ambassador to Armenia, Dr T. Suresh Babu. A status quo on the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh area suits Armenia, he said, adding he “doesn’t see an end to the conflict in the foreseeable future”. With heavy military clashes since September 27, the ex-envoy took note of reports of a $40 million Indian military deal for indigenously made weapon locating radars to Armenia. Speaking to StratNews Global Associate Editor Amitabh P. Revi, the Russia specialist discussed Moscow and Ankara’s role in the Caucasus, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s muscular nationalism and India’s relations with the clashing neighbours. Dr Suresh Babu also explained the dispute and its roots in the collapse of the Soviet Union.
