Turkey`s historic decision: Operation Peace Spring changing balance of power

2019-10-10 21:06:38

U.S. President Donald Trump`s decision to withdraw troops from northern Syria has resonated across the world. There have been different approaches to this decision. Some even said the withdrawal of troops was shameful for America. Especially in the Pentagon there are those who criticized the U.S. president, stressing the necessity of resisting to Turkey. But that would have been an illogical and irrational decision because an ally resisting Turkey and supporting illegal armed groups would have been ridiculous. Experts therefore believe that Washington would not interfere with Ankara`s operation. At the same time, it should be admitted that Turkey undertook a very hard mission because it is confronted by a 110,000-strong well-armed group. Of course, they will be regularly resorting to different tricks. The operation may drag on. But Ankara has no other choice. If Turkey fails this operation, the country may lose its influence in the new world order, which will put all regional nations, including Kurds, at risk.

2019-10-07 16:46:48

The President of Azerbaijan attended the 16th Annual Meeting of Valdai International Discussion Club. Ilham Aliyev made a 15-minute speech at the event to highlight Azerbaijan-Russia strategic relations against a background of global and regional developments. He also referred to recent irresponsible statements of the Armenian leaders, and provided an insight into Azerbaijan`s position on the issue and achievements in state building. Commenting on different aspects of cooperation with Russia, the head of state expressed Azerbaijan`s interest in fostering this collaboration. President Ilham Aliyev gave a harsh answer to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan`s populist statement on the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The Azerbaijani leader`s speech grabbed the audience`s attention and was given a big round of applause.

EAEU`s event in "hospitable" Armenia: confrontations amid vows

2019-10-03 17:10:10

The vassal Armenia`s hosting a meeting of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which was established under Russia`s patronage, is not an unusual event as Armenia now chairs the organization. The fact that the so-called state of Armenia – the aggressor – is a member of the EAEU does not bring it honor. On the contrary, with its resentment, discontent and absurd claims, Armenia is just complicating the situation. In addition, no member country of the EAEU shares Armenia`s hostile position towards Azerbaijan. However, experts do not rule out that the Yerevan meeting may produce positive process for the organization. But the event that took place in the capital of Armenia showed the lack of any progress. There were only new vows. Among them was a proposal to embark on cooperation that would increase the organization`s international influence. In this context, the organization considered the opportunities for building relations with Iran, China, Singapore, Egypt, Israel and other countries.

Nikol Pashinyan's lies in the UN: slave thinking and infantile political illogicality

2019-10-02 18:33:48

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was among those who addressed the 74thSession of the UN General Assembly. His speech was of an extremely poor standard and had little value. But Pashinyan used the UN tribune to try to deceive the international community. An analysis of his speech reveals that the fact that Pashinyan repeatedly makes similar statements reflect his moral, political and psychological abnormalities. The Armenian Prime Minister is not tired of repeating the same things to people – the things that be believes to be true, but in fact are ridiculous. Pashinyan`s speech at the UN General Assembly was completely illogical.

Azerbaijan`s oil strategy: Contract of the Century as the beginning of a successful path

2019-10-01 16:50:12

Signed in 1994, the world-famous Contract of the Century is one of the sources of pride for the Azerbaijani people. President Ilham Aliyev highlighted this fact in his speech at the ceremony to mark 25th anniversary of Contract of the Century and Oil Workers Day. The head of state reiterated the strategic and geopolitical significance of the project. In their letters to the Azerbaijani President, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, UK Secretary of State for International Trade & President of the Board Trade Elizabeth Truss and UK Minister for Europe and the Americas Christopher Pincher stressed very important points in this regard. It`s obvious that these major powers are interested in cooperation with Azerbaijan and highly appreciate the policy pursued by the country`s leadership.

Collapse: Anticipating a political earthquake in Armenia

2019-09-26 15:30:52

Experts have recently been noting the deepening of the political crisis in Armenia. The number of Armenian officials who are discontent with Nikol Pashinyan`s policy is growing and they are leaving the ruling party. The party, which just a year ago seemed to be a strong force and was even described by some as democratic, in fact, was torn apart by contradictions. The situation has worsened to the extent that experts are warning of the collapse of the government. Against this background, the resignation of several senior officials is of particular interest. The "revolutionary" government seems to be unable to find a way out of the situation. Pashinyan`s approval ratings are now going down at a rapid pace. People continue staging protests against Amulsar gold mine. Senior police chief Valeri Osipyan, who opposed the government`s crackdown on the demonstrators, resigned from his post. Pashinyan`s statements contradict sharply with his political identity. Such a scenario may cause chaos in the country.

Patrushev`s Baku talks: in the context of global and regional geopolitical realities

2019-09-09 18:02:51

Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev visited Azerbaijan immediately after John Bolton`s tour of Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and Poland. For experts, the visit came as a surprise as much as the US Security Adviser` s trip. Interestingly, Patrushev visited Armenia in August. Experts believe it`s not a coincidence because senior security officials of two superpowers, which are at loggerheads over geopolitical influence in Eurasia, visited two geopolitically volatile regions. What they came with? Both officials affirmed their countries` commitment to the issue of security. But what does really lie behind these statements? In particular, which issues did dominate Patrushev`s agenda?

EU-Azerbaijan relations: Eastern Partnership and a new strategic cooperation model

2019-09-04 20:26:55

Issues surrounding the preparation of a new cooperation document between the European Union and Azerbaijan have recently provoked lively debates. Different opinions are voiced, with some contradicting each other. Official Baku remains patient and committed to its realistic attitude, saying negotiations on the partnership agreement continue successfully. In this regard, experts should focus on one critical point. Azerbaijan prefers equal relations based on mutual respect with countries and international organizations. Protecting sovereignty and national interests is number one priority. As Azerbaijan was dissatisfied with some terms featured in the European Union`s Eastern Partnership program, the country put forward its own cooperation model. And fruitful talks are now being held in this regard.

New strategic agenda: Brussel`s optimistic forecasts

2019-09-03 01:39:13

For several years, experts have been point out growing negative tendencies within the European Union. Some even hint at the possible collapse of the organization. Brexit is frequently recalled in this context, with experts believing that it will encourage other countries to leave the organization. Against this background, the preparation of an optimistic strategic agenda on the future of the EU is of special interest. The agenda encompasses the organization`s development priorities until 2024. Those who drafted the agenda believe that the organization will develop in specific areas. But whether this will happen or not remains a question. What adds interest to the agenda is that apart from EU member states it also highlights some points relating to non-member states that cooperate with the organization.

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.
