Our Lands – Erivan Becoming "Yerevan"

2018-02-27 15:24:18

Actually I was not going to write about it. Mainly because on 8 February 2018 President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev delivered an extensive and substantive speech on country's domestic and foreign policy during the New Azerbaijan Party's 4th Convention. However, following the statements by the Armenian, Russian and French officials in response to President Aliyev's remarks I figured that writing an article was a must.

The psychology of Armenia`s foreign policy

2017-07-25 16:14:54

National psychology plays a crucial role in building and shaping a foreign policy. A psychological aspect should be taken into account when assessing economic, political or security policy of countries. Developed by humans, foreign policy is inevitably affected by their psychology, mood, thinking, and world view. Armenia`s foreign policy has been shaped by President Serzh Sargsyan and his team for 10 years. Members of Sargsyan`s team have changed several times over these years, but his foreign policy remains unchanged. The reason is that it is his views that form the backbone of this policy.

Differing Attitude within America's Policy on South Caucasus

2017-04-11 14:30:03

The U.S. does more than express opinion on the developments around political and security problems – it finds political and military ways of interfering. The geography of such meddling spans continents – from the South-East Asia to the Middle East, from Africa to Latin America and even Europe. Everywhere, America's meddling pursues one goal – to impact the developments in line with own interests and utilize to the maximum extent every political and military means available.

Avetyan, Martirosyan, Chaginyan, Arzumanyan, Torosyan and others...

Armenia has kept 20 per cent of Azerbaijani lands under occupation for 25 years. The initiatives put forward by the OSCE Minsk Group, which was set up to mediate the problem, have proved fruitless so far. Among the main reasons why Armenia`s occupation still continues are that no clarification is made into the notions of the aggressor and the victim, that truth is hidden, and that the rights of over a million Azerbaijani refuges to live on their own soil are ignored, while human rights of 100,000 Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians are brought to the fore.

The USA: a mediator or a provocateur?

2016-12-21 12:51:33

America has dominated the unipolar world since the fall of the USSR. The US is certainly the most powerful country both politically, economically and militarily. The US military budget is $582.7 billion, which exceeds the military budget of G8 countries all together. Washington is expected to increase its military spending as it leads the international anti-terror coalition. The US has and regularly uses the opportunity to interfere politically or militarily in processes taking place in any part of the world. Although America behaves as the world ruler the country almost lacks a sense of justice and does not obey the principles of international law.

Armenia's Transportation Limbo: No Light at the End of the Tunnel

2016-07-28 18:52:29

International transportation issue has been a lingering problem for Armenia since the day it declared its independence. The northern transportation corridor that runs across Azerbaijan has been inaccessible after occupation of Azerbaijan's territory. Although Armenia uses the Upper Lars customs checkpoint in Georgia, for political, geographic, environmental and other reasons it occasionally encounters significant problems there. That is to say that Upper Lars simply cannot accommodate completely Armenia's needs.

Armenia's Demographic Problems

2016-03-03 12:43:31

Since declaring its independence, Armenia has largely been helpless in tackling its political, economic and social grievances. Another dangerous problem of demographics is evident in its entire severity and persists as a negative trend. According to the UN's 2015 World Population Prospects, Armenia of today with the population of 3.018 million people would see a steady decline in numbers – 2.992 million in 2030, 2.729 million in 2050 and 1.700 million in 21001. Based on information released by Karine Kuyumchuyan of the Census Department of the National Statistics Service of Armenia, the natural population growth in the country stood at 4091 people in the first quarter of 2015 – 8.6 percent decline from the year before (4447).

Is Minsk Group an Honest Broker?

2016-02-10 14:40:27

According to the international practice, when countries cannot agree on the issues related to occupation, ethnic problems, border disputes and other matters, one or several impartial states can be designated as mediators for resolution of the outstanding issue. Examples are abundant. Created in 1992, the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe was supposed to resolve the problem of occupation of Azerbaijan's territory by Armenia. Yet for over 20 years now, the Minsk Group has struggled to propose to the parties any decent plan for peaceful resolution of the problem. The Minsk Group cannot even be credited with the signing of the ceasefire agreement in 1994.

Ukraine Factor in West-Russia Standoff – Part Two

2014-12-05 13:29:04

As the struggle between the West and Russia over Ukraine has exacerbated the government of Ukraine commenced the pursuit of what U.S. and European countries are describing as deepening of ties with the European Union. That said, it started to feel greater Russian pressure as Ukraine moved forward. It was followed by an attempt of the Ukrainian government to distance itself from the European Union and seek advancement of relations with Russia.

Ukraine Factor in West-Russia Standoff – Part One

2014-12-04 12:33:47

Until the late 2000s the Western world-Russia standoff was largely unfolding in the Eastern Europe, however since then, the West has endeavored to solidify its stance in the post-Soviet geography. Eastern Partnership, NATO's Partnership for Peace Program and others were designated to foster relations with the post-Soviet nations and enhance their European integration. Today, Ukraine is vital for enlargement aspirations of the West, whereas for Russia, it stands for a struggle arena for prevention of approaching towards its borders. The outlines of this struggle became more evident by the late 2013, while Ukraine has aimed to determine its political future sandwiched between the two powers.

Trade war set to be the United States' next foreign policy quagmire

History is littered with real wars, like those in Afghanistan, Iraq and Vietnam, that were supposed to be won quickly and cheaply but turned out to be the most expensive and inconclusive of quagmires.
