Anti-Iran sanctions and PKK: Washington playing two cards

2018-11-12 17:58:52

Two decisions announced by the United States in November have grabbed the global spotlight. Experts admit that although these two events cover different areas, they are interconnected. It is Washington`s decision to re-impose anti-Iranian sanctions and pledge a total of 15 million US dollars for information which could lead to the arrest of three PKK leaders. If we look at the ongoing developments in the Middle East and nearby geopolitical regions from one perspective, we can conclude that very dangerous scenarios may lie behind these two events. If anti-Iranian sanctions encourage tragedy, poverty and disorder in a broader geography, the creation of a new terrorist organization to replace PKK may bring about new tragedies. The United States` efforts to officially rehabilitate another terrorist organization serve this goal. In this article, we will try to analyze possible consequences of these developments.

Azerbaijan successfully hosted the 6th Baku International Humanitarian Forum. This time the motto of the event addressed creativity and human development. These issues were discussed in the context of humanity. The two-day forum brought together hundreds of delegates from different parts of the world.

Meanwhile, Baku International Humanitarian Forum addressed a range of pressing issues of global concern. In this context, we would like to look at the geopolitical significance of the Baku Forum.
