    Question to Pashinyan: Do you fear 3rd war between Armenia, Azerbaijan?

    As for regional destabilization and steps towards it, of course, anyone with common sense would be concerned. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said this in an interview with The Telegraph's international commentator Roland Oliphant Sunday—and answering the question whether he fears that a third war may start between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

    ‘"Fear’ is not the right word to use, because the Republic of Armenia is a democratic, developing state and, as I have already said, the Republic of Armenia is implementing large-scale reforms to improve the resilience of the country, and by the way, in recent years, I think the international community and our community have seen and saw that the resilience of our country has improved significantly. We continue the path of reforms to further improve Armenia's resilience.. As for regional destabilization and steps towards it, of course, anyone with common sense would be concerned," he said.

    Pashinyan said that the interstate nature of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan should be noted.

    "Although we do not have diplomatic relations, I have to refer to the documents we signed, to rely on those documents. I already said that we have signed a document with Azerbaijan on non-use of force and threat of force. If we look at it with this logic and if Azerbaijan were to not respect the documents signed by itself, then Azerbaijan might attack any country, why only Armenia? Look around Azerbaijan, if they were to not respect their international commitments, then they could attack any of their neighboring countries, if that were the case," he added.

    And to Oliphant's question that if Pashinyan receives those international commitments, does he trust Aliyev to keep those commitments, Pashinyan said: "I trust in God, and I believe that every self-respecting state should follow its commitments."
