The Non-Aligned Movement in Azerbaijani foreign policy

2019-10-24 17:38:43

Azerbaijan became a full member of the Non-Aligned Movement, which includes 120 member states, 17 observer states and 10 international organizations as observers on May 26th 2011. What makes the Movement attractive for Azerbaijan are undoubtedly its principles. For Azerbaijan, principles of sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and non-intervention of international law constitute existential red lines. For Azerbaijani diplomacy, which is trying to resolve the issue of its Nagorno-Karabakh region and its environs, which were occupied and pillaged by Armenia, in the framework of international law, a large and influential platform such as the Non-Aligned Movement is very significant.

The confusion that existed in the aftermath of WWI at the global and regional level made a new world order necessary. Tsarist Russia having come to an end led to the statism of Azerbaijan, which had been covered up by the Russian Empire to blossom once more. Azerbaijani étatism surfaced once more on May 28th 1918 under the name Azer­baijan People's Republic. Although the history of Azerbaijani diplo­macy, in keeping with that of the states mentioned above, stretches back centuries, in the modern sense considered as a nation state, its history begins with the founding of the Azerbaijan People's Republic. At the time, Azerbaijani diplomacy faced many tough tasks and numerous problems it had to solve.

Europe's Energy Security and the Role of Azerbaijan

2019-04-15 20:15:05

Today the world's primary energy resources consist of oil, natural gas, coal and in addition nuclear and hydroelectric power plants. Since the last decade new energy resources were added to this list, such as wind and solar energy, which are rapidly increasing in usage. However, data for the last five years show that despite the wide utilisation of alternative energy resources worldwide, the need for traditional energy resources has not diminished. This once more shows how significant Azerbaijan, and its natu­ral energy resources, are for Europe and the world's economy.

Armenia – a cause of instability in South Caucasia

2018-10-15 19:13:45

For a century now, the term South Caucasia brings to mind a geographical region consisting of three countries: Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. Throughout the past century, the region has occupied the world political agenda with a series of issues. Some of these are hot issues that stem from territorial and border disputes, border security, occupations and border conflicts. The direct and indirect involvement of global powers and of powers that pursue their own interests in the region has been influential in the lack of a solution to these problems. Therefore, at present South Caucasia is a region that harbours a series of internal problems that can cause significant regional and international difficulties. In fact, it may be said that South Caucasia is a small region that can cause big problems for the world. These problems are undoubtedly triggered by some of the region's characteristics.

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.
