2019-03-07 16:16:33

Azerbaijan celebrates the 27th anniversary of its membership of the United Nations. Experts are unanimously confident that relations between the country and the organization have been developing at a rapid pace since March 2, 1992. Azerbaijan has developed its relationship with the world`s leading organization in all areas since becoming its member. But the country experienced certain problems in these relations in the early years of independence. The then leadership`s political incompetence and provocative actions of certain forces prevented the country from building a sound and fruitful cooperation with the UN. National leader Heydar Aliyev`s return to power marked a turning point in Azerbaijan`s relationship with the organization. It became systematic and fully met Azerbaijan`s independent statehood interests. This article will provide an analysis of the geopolitical aspect of Azerbaijan-UN relationship in this context.

2017-01-12 14:45:44

Politicians, scientists, analysts and experts have repeatedly noted the need for a new geo-political world order. This looks quite natural against a background of a variety of dangerous global processes that have been taking place since the early 21st century. Called global problems, these negative trends are growing and posing a threat to entire mankind. So there is a need for a new geo-political world order that would please all countries and that would be based on international law. Violence, terror, double standards, poverty, hunger, violation of law should at least be reduced to a minimum. The whole of mankind is facing this task. But surprisingly the world is now unable to perform this transition. One of the weakest points here is that there is no confidence in international organizations, first and foremost in the United Nations. Theoretically, everyone admits the role and importance of the United Nations, but when it comes to doing concrete work, certain barriers emerge. Is there a way out? What do experts think?

According to the format of G7, Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, U.S., France and Japan gathered to address the urgent issues of international relevance.

By the way, the idea of convening of the leaders of developed nations emerged in the 1970s, in the times of economic crisis and aggravated relations on the economic and fiscal matters between the U.S., Western Europe and Japan.

It is no secret that on the global scale, there are ongoing complex and fluid processes. Unfolding conflicts in certain parts of the world imperil the formation of a security system in general, especially in the South Caucasus, where the issue of stability and peace is of greater relevance. Therefore, the substance of the foreign policy of the regional countries evokes interest. The analysis demonstrates that each nation has the posture of its own. Armenia plays an utterly destructive role. Yerevan's recent actions prove that the region is prone to escalation of uncertainty. Georgia, in the meantime, is deprived of a capacity to effectively leverage the situation, owing to the number of errors this nation made, in terms of the geopolitical choices. And it is only up to Azerbaijan to play an instrumental role for the sake of ensuring regional security.

Experts differ in their opinions regarding the causes of Ukraine crisis. Commonly, Russia's "aggressive behavior'' is cited as the key reason. Yet, lately a different position has started to emerge.
