Fyodor Lukyanov deems Russia-Tukey-Azerbaijan alliance as ‘impossible’

We are living a period when the idea of alliances has disappeared, and they simple do not exist in these days, Chairman of the Presidium of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, and Research Director of the Valdai International Discussion Club Fyodor Lukyanov told a press conference on Monday in Yerevan when asked to comment on the possibility of an alliance of Russia, Turkey, and Azerbaijan.

To remind, earlier Turkish president Erdogan had come up with an idea of establishing trilateral alliance of Russian, Turkey, and Azerbaijan discussed with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Lukyanov recalled the cooperation framework of Russia, Turkey, and Iran aimed at the resolution of the Syrian conflict. “I view that as a model. It does not necessarily mean they are in a union. In that specific case, their interests partially coincided while trying to solve the issues and break the deadlock,” Lukyanov stressed.

The political scientist went on suggesting there is even no perspective for a possible union among Russians, Turkey, and Azerbaijan.

“The three states share certain interests. I understand Armenia’s perception of that. However, conceivably, that is not a union and will not be ever,” pointed the speaker, adding Russia knows well it should communicate with Armenia any developments with that respect as an allied country through the EAEU and the CSTO, to assure those relations pose no threat to Armenia.

“Russia, as a super power, will develop its relations in a way it deems necessary,” concluded Lukyanov.
