South Caucasus shouldn’t be overestimated –expert

2010-10-26 12:58

9255.jpegSouth Caucasus doesn't play a big role in global policy, stated Thomas de Waal from Carnegie Fund. 

He said he doesn't consider South Caucasus a strategically important region for the world, and in case strategic importance of the region is overestimated, it overrates the self-appraisal of local political figures. Unfortunately, it happened with Georgia in 2008, he noted - Vestnik Kavkaza.

De Waal noticed that South Caucasus is mainly discussed by the world community in negative light. Its instability and frozen conflicts still can harm a bigger region. If Nagorno-Karabakh conflict again grows into a military one, it would affect not only Armenia and Azerbaijan, but also catastrophically impact Georgia, Russia, Turkey, Iran, and oil and gas sphere of Caspian Sea, the expert explained.
