EU-Azerbaijan: key aspects of strategic partnership against background of Tusk`s visit
15 July 2019

Some experts are alleging that Azerbaijan-European Union relations experience tough times and that Brussels even hesitates to recognize Azerbaijan`s territorial integrity. But Donald Tusk`s visit to the region clarified the situation. His remarks refuted the provocative allegations. Donald Tusk described the EU`s relations with Azerbaijan as strategic and very important. Brussels recognizes Azerbaijan as a powerful state and the leader of the South Caucasus. This shows that the relationship with Baku influences greatly the geopolitical picture of the region. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev confirmed this following his meeting with Donald Tusk. This article will highlight the geopolitical importance of Donald Tusk`s visit to Azerbaijan.

Both nations are geographically close, and Azerbaijan is the only Turkic state sharing a small border with Turkey through Azerbaijan's Nakhchivan region. All this has contributed to the build-up of special ties between modern-day Turkey and Azerbaijan.

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.

The foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenian held another meeting in Washington, mediated by the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group. The meeting grabbed the media spotlight. But the Armenian side distorted some details of the meeting. Yerevan appears to be losing the sense of logic behind its position.

All these efforts, of course, are doomed to failure. Sooner or later the occupying forces will be expelled from the Azerbaijani lands. This article will highlight the Washington meeting from this perspective.
