America's Double Standard on Nagorno-Karabakh

America's Double Standard on Nagorno-Karabakh
17 March 2018

One of the most important promises of Donald Trump's presidential campaign was to end the damage that special interest groups and lobbyists inflict on the United States' national interests, and to pursue an ''America first'' policy in the best interests of the American people. It is quite well-known that there are groups that speak on behalf of non-U.S.-allied nations, and tend to promote policies that benefit their home nation with little regard for America's best interests. One clear example is the promotion of this week's visit by the so-called president of the separatist ''Nagorno-Karabakh Republic'' Bako Sahakyan to the United States, which was organized by the Armenian diaspora in the United States. This event has already had a negative effect, which is why Azerbaijan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has presented a note of protest to the United States.

The growing regional power of Azerbaijan, through its foreign investments and arms imports, combined with waning investments into Armenia from Russia, is causing policy makers in Yerevan to question Russia's future reliability as a provider of security and economic assistance.

The Factors Which Give Ground For The United Nations Security Council To Determine Armenia As An Aggressor State
25 December 2017

Armenia started the next military against Azerbaijan since 1988, occupied the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast (the territory of 4388 km2) and the surrounding districts – Akhdam, Fuzuli, Lachin, Kabajar, Jabrayil, Kubadli, Zangilan. As a result of "ethnic cleaning" policy of Armenia more than 250000 Azerbaijanis became refugees in only 1988-1992 from the present Armenian territory, as a result of occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh and 7 surrounding districts nearly 700000 Azerbaijanis became a force displaced refugee, more than 20000 people were killed, more than 50000 people were wounded or invalid, about 4866 people were taken captive or hostage during 1988-1993. 314 of them were women, 58 of them were children and 255 of them were old people.

Those Who Shun the Truth: Belgian Judge and New Chapter of Slander

Those Who Shun the Truth: Belgian Judge and New Chapter of Slander
27 September 2017

The campaign of slur, slander and fabrications against Azerbaijan is ongoing in some media outlets in Europe. Two Belgian newspapers have recently joined the race. In their publications they have attacked the judge of Belgium's Constitutional Court Jean-Paul Moerman for the veracity of his remarks on Azerbaijan. Illogical as it may seem, the European media is accusing Moerman of pro-Azerbaijan bias. Mr. Moerman's truthful remarks concerning the Khojaly genocide, Armenia's aggression and indifference of the international community were not met with objectivity. There is seemingly a euphoria in the West that whenever anything positive is said of Azerbaijan it must certainly be refuted. And that absolutely defies any legal or moral boundaries.

Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli: from oil fields to the global strategy

Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli: from oil fields to the global strategy
14 September 2017

Today in Baku is organized the signing ceremony of a new contract on development of the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) block of oil and gas fields in the Azerbaijani sector of the Caspian Sea. Indeed, discovered in the early 1970s when Azerbaijan was part of the Soviet Union, ACG is the largest oilfield in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian basin. Lying beneath 120 metres of water about 120 km east of Baku, it comprises a series of individual "reservoir horizons" located 2,000-3,500 metres beneath the Caspian seabed.

Situation in Armenia: internal crisis, foreign policy fiasco

Situation in Armenia: internal crisis, foreign policy fiasco
04 August 2017

The Armenian media have recently been making attempts to explain official Yerevan`s policy by using a strange logic. This mainly manifests itself in exaggeration of Azerbaijan-related issues. On the one hand, they spread false information on the Azerbaijani army`s retaliation against the Armenian provocations, and on the other, try to accuse the Kremlin of selling arms to Baku. Failing to put forward any convincing argument, Armenia, as usual, resorts to slander. It is obvious that the Azerbaijani military is several times stronger than the Armenian armed forces. Azerbaijan retaliates strongly against each provocation of the Armenians. At the same time, Azerbaijan is continuously increasing its defense capabilities. Baku also continues to purchase weapons from Moscow. The leaders of Azerbaijan and Russia maintain regular contacts, discussing and searching for ways to address regional and global geopolitical problems. This irritates official Yerevan. But it is impossible to hide the reality – the social, political, economic, spiritual and moral crisis is deepening in Armenia.

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.

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?

02 March 2017

Not long ago, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan have marked 20 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the republics. Over the years of independence, our countries have achieved impressive results, such as rapid economic growth and socioeconomic stability. We have a very good relationship, which has become synonymous with mutual trust and equality. The foundations of these ties were built on the principles of friendship and partnership and were, of course, laid by National Leader of Azerbaijani people Heydar Aliyev and President of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Leader of Kazakh nation Nursultan Nazarbayev. These relations have been continuing to grow and develop under the current President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.

What on earth is Trump saying?

Trump prides himself on unpredictability, but, as the attack in Syria showed, there is a price to be paid for leaving allies and enemies alike guessing about your intentions.
