There is a great will to finally put an end to the conflict between Armenians and Azerbaijanis. In the wake of the Ukraine War, Armenians no longer want to rely so much upon Russia.  

At the same time, following the Liberation War, one of the main stumbling blocks for Armenian-Azerbaijani reconciliation, namely Armenia’s illegal occupation of Azerbaijan’s Karabakh region and seven other Azerbaijani districts, has come to an end.

According to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, “ Late last year, Baku and Yerevan agreed to form a delimitation commission, established a hotline between their defense ministers, and began once again talking directly with each other—all small signs of progress.”

Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyav delivered a speech in Shusha, where he proclaimed that the issue of Armenian-Azerbaijani normalization is on the agenda now: “Despite all the painful moments, despite the occupation and despite all the atrocities committed, we believe that this is necessary for the future of the region. So, we came up with a peace agenda.”

He added: “So we put forward a proposal consisting of five specific principles, and Armenia has accepted these five principles. Thus, the Armenian leadership has officially stated that it recognizes the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and has no territorial claims to Azerbaijan and will not do so in the future. This is an essential moment for the post-conflict period, and we intend to conduct further negotiations based on these five principles.”

“At present, the foreign ministers and ministries of the two countries are setting up working groups, and I think concrete talks should be initiated soon,” Azerbaijan’s President noted. “The talks should not be delayed because a peace agreement will be signed based on five principles. Therefore, the text of the agreement can be prepared and signed soon. Thus, the relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan can be established, including diplomatic relations.”

Following these developments, Ayoob Kara, who served as Israel’s Communication, Satellite and Cyber Minister, stressed that there are many things that Israel can do to help the two sides: “I think that Israel is very influential at this time.  She has the best innovation and different technologies. This means that every state needs help from Israel, whether military, cyber, medicine, or agriculture. I think that Armenia needs Israel and so does Azerbaijan. Israel can connect between the two states. They can give terms to help them if they go to the right process to make peace.”

“I don’t think that Armenia will agree to peace with Azerbaijan tomorrow morning,” Kara cautioned, “but something could slowly happen in several years, we have to push for it. After they saw that Karabakh is part of Azerbaijan, they also wanted peace. They don’t need war. Step by step, they agree that Azerbaijan is not an enemy. After that, they could cooperate with all the areas.  If they take it as a goal, they could have it.”   

Kara believes that, “Israel can push other states to help them including Europe, the US, the Middle East and others. This is the direction. We can do a lot to help Armenia improve in different things and Azerbaijan could control the area better. Azerbaijan is not the enemy of Armenia. Azerbaijan is a secular state and is very liberal. I am sure that they could cooperate together.”
