Implementation of 3+3 cooperation mechanism in the South Caucasus will allow Yerevan to understand today’s reality, said Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of the Russian magazine Nasionalnaya Oborona, a well-known military expert, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.

According to him, on December 10, the establishment of the 3+3 format which is a new cooperation mechanism in the South Caucasus is of vital importance for the region: “Support of Moscow and Tehran for Baku and Ankara’s initiative is an indicator that there is no alternative for economic cooperation in the region. The meeting in 3+3 format is very important in terms of starting economic cooperation and integration process in the region. Today we see that Georgia remains outside of this process. However, despite this, we hope that Armenia’s participation in this format will allow Yerevan to realize today’s reality. There is no alternative to economic cooperation in the region. Economic connection of region countries, implementation of joint economic projects in general economic space, the establishment of the general market will give a strong impetus to the progress of all South Caucasus countries. The main duty of this cooperation mechanism is the opening of the Zangazur corridor. This will be a foreign corridor passing from the territory of Armenia and will connect Azerbaijan with Nakhchivan. The sooner Armenia carries out this project, the sooner we will witness the economic development of the region, the prosperity of industry, the rise in living standards of ordinary citizens of the countries attending this project.”

Director of the Institute for Political Studies of Russia, Sergey Markov noted APA that the "3+3" cooperation format has great perspectives and he forecasts that this format will give an opportunity to solve not only economic but also political problems of the region. ""3+3" format has a very good perspective. This cooperation format is not only for the resolution of the existing problems at present, but also for the establishment of the free-economic trade zone that both the South Caucasus countries and neighboring countries to them such as Russia, Turkey, and Iran will take part in this zone. In this perspective, if there are no special problems, at that time, the free-economic trade zone may be established. On this basis, it will be possible to jointly manage transportation and logistics projects. This will pave the way for Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia to involve investments from giant countries. If all of these happen, I think that we may see the rapid development of the South Caucasus countries in terms of economy in the near future. In addition, the "3+3' format will give an opportunity to solve any political problems. That is why this project has great perspectives". The Russian experts have noted that the establishment of the new cooperation format in the region is the political and economic result of Azerbaijan's victory in the Second Karabakh war.
