A meeting between the leaders of Russia is underway in Moscow, Armenia and Azerbaijan. It takes place on the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This is the first meeting, where Nikol Pashinyan and Ilham Aliyev found themselves at the same table after the hostilities between Armenian and Azerbaijani troops in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Kremlin press service publishes first photos from meeting of three leaders. Psychologists, based on these photos, give their assessment of the, what is happening in the negotiations in the Russian capital.
There is no image in the photo, where the President of Azerbaijan and the Prime Minister of Armenia would shake hands. This is understandable. Handshakes after the open phase of a military conflict, which ended not on the initiative of one of its parties, and after decisive measures by the Russian president, would be inappropriate.
But Ilham Aliyev and Nikol Pashinyan had handshakes with President Vladimir Putin.
Psychologists have paid attention to the fact, that the handshake of the leaders of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Azerbaijan was accompanied by the smiles of the presidents, what can not be said about the handshake of Putin and Pashinyan. The heads of Russia and Armenia at the time, which the camera captured, behaved more than restrained. Nikol Pashinyan's face can be called tense.
For him, these negotiations and the meeting itself are clearly more difficult., than for the same Ilham Aliyev. If Aliyev arrived in Moscow as a de facto winner in the war for Nagorno-Karabakh, then Pashinyan not only as a loser, but also as a politician, lost support in his own country. Suffice it to say, that Pashinyan could not have flown to Moscow at all, since the road to Yerevan airport was blocked by people, demanding the prime minister to resign. Pashinyan, as psychologists say, even in these two photos looks depressed, but still ready to take certain steps.
During the negotiations, ways of further interaction on issues, related to Karabakh, including ways of a humanitarian nature. According to some reports, a particularly acute issue is the issue of a corridor from the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic to another part of Azerbaijan through the territory of Armenia. earlier it was reported, that security in this corridor can be provided by Russian border guards.
