Georgia and Azerbaijan: From Partnership to Interdependence

Georgia and Azerbaijan: From Partnership to Interdependence
05 July 2017

The fates of Georgia and Azerbaijan have been closely linked for most of their histories, and now this is true more than ever. The past twenty-five years have demonstrated that without their close strategic partnership, neither country would be able to sustain its independence or achieve greater economic prosperity.

The Notion of "Alien" in Emerging Multicultural Values

The Notion of "Alien" in Emerging Multicultural Values
03 July 2017

The Globalization and transformations on the international scene as well as within the societies in individual countries, provoked by such processes, are most certainly among the major challenges of our times. Ultimately, the globalization is about universal values, multicultural environment, tolerance towards the differences and astronomic speed of the processes and developments. Therefore, those aspects cannot but be reflected in the new world order.

Changing geopolitical conditions in the Middle East: against a background of Iran election and Trump`s visit

Changing geopolitical conditions in the Middle East: against a background of Iran election and Trump`s visit
25 May 2017

Experts are analyzing the outcome of the presidential election in Iran, with main emphasis made on possible geopolitical repercussions of Hassan Rouhani`s re-election. Some of them say Rouhani`s assuming the second term means Iran will take a softer stand. A reformist, Rouhani wants Iran to be more open to the world. Other experts believe that Tehran will strengthen global economic competition. They see Iran as a tough opponent for the West. Therefore, risks will remain in relations with Iran. Others look at the situation through a prism of Iran`s internal political realities. Reforms in Iran may change the situation, allowing the country to play a more active role on the international scene, which will contribute to stability. These issues seem to be thought-provoking against a background of Donald Trump`s Middle East tour. In this context, it would be interesting to analyze how the geopolitical situation may change in the region.

Macron's Victory: Against the Backdrop of Geopolitical and Domestic Discord

Macron's Victory: Against the Backdrop of Geopolitical and Domestic Discord
22 May 2017

As Emanuel Macron, candidate of the centrist "En Marche" movement that he himself founded, became the next French President, new questions have emerged within the expert community around the world. Some regard him as the European Union's savior, while others argue that the political environment in the country is still far from clear. There is also an attempt to identify a connection between the French elections and the global geopolitics, including the political processes in the U.S. and Great Britain. Donald Trump's victory, the Brexit and Macron's election are seen as three developments that are somehow associated with one another. According to some analysts, it is about the change of substance in the Western politics in the post World War II era. They contend that the policy of double standards is an underlying factor for the political and geopolitical ambiguities. Nevertheless, the general understanding is that the outcome of the French elections will have a profound impact on global geopolitics.

New Legislature in the U.S. Congress: Testimony to Double-Dealing Attitude

New Legislature in the U.S. Congress: Testimony to Double-Dealing Attitude
18 May 2017

According to media reports, the U.S. Congress has passed the budget bill for 2017. The document contains reference to Ukraine and Georgia and reiterates the America's support of their territorial integrity. To that end, certain objectives have been set before the appropriate government agencies and funds have been earmarked. Any country that aims to undermine Georgia and Ukraine's territorial integrity would be deprived of the U.S. assistance. Everything is totally understandable and there is nothing extraordinary about it. Yet, the very document contains no reference to Azerbaijan's sovereignty or support of its territorial integrity. There is an abstract regarding the allocation of $100 million to defend the post-Soviet countries from "Russian aggression". However, the document fails to mention specifically the occupation force – the aggressor Armenia. What is the reason? If Russia is classified as an "aggressor", then what category its closest ally Armenia that for 20 years has occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan's territory falls in?

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the restoration of state independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan, I would like to sincerely congratulate and to address greetings of prosperity to all the people of Azerbaijan. This is a significant historical event. It's important to underline that Romania has been the second state in the world to recognize the independence of Azerbaijan (on December 11, 1991). Following that moment, diplomatic relations between Azerbaijan and Romania were established on June 19, 1992.

Geopolitics of the South Caucasus: Warmonger Armenia

Geopolitics of the South Caucasus: Warmonger Armenia
14 April 2017

As the superpowers spar for influence on the global level, it exacerbates the risk factor in different regions. Development scenarios around the processes in the South Caucasus are subject of particular interest. European think-tanks produce projections of their own on this issue but those forecasts differ with respect to certain aspects. There are some fascinating theses, most importantly on Russia and the issue of the conflicts. Armenian analysts choose to address the issue of a war. According to them, only a war can make Armenia independent – the one between the U.S. and Russia. The future of the South Caucasus is a matter of grave concern in light of such an utterly perilous prospect. Would the world fall for another Armenian provocation?

New Height of Crisis in the Middle East: Big Powers are Gearing Up

New Height of Crisis in the Middle East: Big Powers are Gearing Up
06 April 2017

Military clashes in Syria and Iraq have become more intensive lately with one of the key features being the air bombardments against the civilians. Such attacks had claimed hundreds of lives and caused displacement of thousands more. The situation in Mosul is dramatic to the extent that the government forces have halted the operations. Elsewhere in Syria, the geopolitical tensions around Manbij and Afrin have spiraled. Washington and Moscow have started to back PYD there openly. If Americans are eyeing Raqqa, Russians are making sure that their people are on the ground in Afrin to secure their interests. Ankara's response was an anticipated one as it said the Operation Euphrates Shield would continue. Thus, the outlines of an apparent new triangle of tensions – standoff between US, Russia and Turkey – is starting to emerge.

With less than six months to the next elections to German Bundestag (September 2017) international media is monitoring closely all the political processes around the world that are even slightly associated with such a significant political event. Upcoming elections in one of the most influential nations of the Old World that actually serves as the economic safeguard across the entire European continent are important because imminent is the shaping of the new government and the election of the Chancellor. For the time being, it is evident that the race for the highest public position in the country will not be the easiest one as some of the time-tested political hawks are gearing up for the fight.
