Israeli Specialists Trained Georgian Military

The visit of Israeli President’s visit to Baku and dynamics of Azerbaijani-Israeli relations are not a coincidence, a Russian expert said.

“Israeli experts have been carrying out a purposeful work to strengthen relations with Azerbaijan. Israel is fortifying positions in the Caucasus, it’s obvious. Let’s not forget that Israeli specialists trained the Georgian military before attack on South Ossetia,” said Andrey Areshev, deputy director general of the strategic culture foundation.

“It’s unclear whether Israel plays its own game or acts as an agent of another power wishing destabilization of Russia and Iran. At that, it would be naïve to think that intensification of Baku-Tel Aviv relations is still a secret for Iran and Arab states,” he said.

Further developments depend on a number of factors, according to Areshev.

He also said that the Azeri diplomacy’s aspiration to act simultaneously at American-Israeli, Islamic and Russian fronts is quite understandable but it will hardly produce positive results.

“To resolve the Karabakh problem, Baku should put an end to bellicose statements and launch an open dialogue with Stepanakert,” Areshev concluded.
