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?

Differing Attitude within America's Policy on South Caucasus

Differing Attitude within America's Policy on South Caucasus
11 April 2017

The U.S. does more than express opinion on the developments around political and security problems – it finds political and military ways of interfering. The geography of such meddling spans continents – from the South-East Asia to the Middle East, from Africa to Latin America and even Europe. Everywhere, America's meddling pursues one goal – to impact the developments in line with own interests and utilize to the maximum extent every political and military means available.

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.

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.

Khojaly genocide – clear manifestation of Turkophobia

Khojaly genocide – clear manifestation of Turkophobia
23 February 2017

The 20th century witnessed the perpetration of crimes and emergence of universal threats and challenges. It is the past century when humanity was brought face to face with fascism, racism, xenophobia, apartheid, genocide, international terrorism and different phobias, particularly Islamophobia and Turkophobia, which have recently been growing. The last century went down in history as a century of two world wars, millions of deaths and the use of the atomic bomb. The 20th century witnessed one of the large-scale outbreaks of national, religious and racial discrimination in human history. Crimes against humanity encouraged the emergence of a world order dominated by the killing of millions of innocent people and national, religious and ethnic phobias. Unfortunately, all these events challenging humanity are associated with the Western world, Europe, which is considered an example to the rest of the world.

Baku meeting of generals: the Caucasus` center of peace and reconciliation

Baku meeting of generals: the Caucasus` center of peace and reconciliation
21 February 2017

The Azerbaijani capital of Baku has hosted a landmark meeting between the chairmen of the joint chiefs of staff of the Russian and American armed forces. Experts say the agenda did not include mere local and technical issues as the generals discussed global geopolitical problems. And it`s no coincidence that the two superpowers decided to choose Baku as location for the meeting of their military leaders. They gave preference to Azerbaijan as the most rational option from among former Soviet republics. This means that the post-Soviet region is now playing an increasing role in the global geopolitical processes. In the Caucasian sub-region, preference is given to Azerbaijan as a reliable and civil country. We believe that this will have a strong impact on regional and global politics and the formation of security system.
