Washington. Isabel Levine –APA. “Azerbaijan should have an excellent chance to represent itself in the Security Council”, Thomas Ambrosio, US analyst on South Caucasus issues, an Associate Professor of political science at the North Dakota State University, said in an interview with APA’s Washington, DC correspondent.

He believes, Azerbaijan’s chances seem pretty good, with Moscow backing Azerbaijan’s candidacy.

“Armenian-American organizations appear to be fighting it and it will be interesting what Washington does”, he mentioned.

According to the analyst, assuming one of the rotating seats in the UN Security Council is more important symbolically than politically.

“In reality, most decisions by the UN SC are taken by the five permanent members and then presented to the 10 rotating members. Nonetheless, the prominence of the body can only help to enhance the prominence of Azerbaijan on the world stage”, he said, adding, it may also have a more substantive benefit for Azerbaijan: “Sitting on the Security Council may allow Baku to help set the agenda of the Security Council and place the Nagorno-Karabakh issue on the world’s agenda”.
