Collapse: Anticipating a political earthquake in Armenia

Collapse: Anticipating a political earthquake in Armenia
26 September 2019

Experts have recently been noting the deepening of the political crisis in Armenia. The number of Armenian officials who are discontent with Nikol Pashinyan`s policy is growing and they are leaving the ruling party. The party, which just a year ago seemed to be a strong force and was even described by some as democratic, in fact, was torn apart by contradictions. The situation has worsened to the extent that experts are warning of the collapse of the government. Against this background, the resignation of several senior officials is of particular interest. The "revolutionary" government seems to be unable to find a way out of the situation. Pashinyan`s approval ratings are now going down at a rapid pace. People continue staging protests against Amulsar gold mine. Senior police chief Valeri Osipyan, who opposed the government`s crackdown on the demonstrators, resigned from his post. Pashinyan`s statements contradict sharply with his political identity. Such a scenario may cause chaos in the country.

New strategic agenda: Brussel`s optimistic forecasts

New strategic agenda: Brussel`s optimistic forecasts

For several years, experts have been point out growing negative tendencies within the European Union. Some even hint at the possible collapse of the organization. Brexit is frequently recalled in this context, with experts believing that it will encourage other countries to leave the organization. Against this background, the preparation of an optimistic strategic agenda on the future of the EU is of special interest. The agenda encompasses the organization`s development priorities until 2024. Those who drafted the agenda believe that the organization will develop in specific areas. But whether this will happen or not remains a question. What adds interest to the agenda is that apart from EU member states it also highlights some points relating to non-member states that cooperate with the organization.

Pashinyan`s Khankendi rhetoric: the region at risk of tragedy

Pashinyan`s Khankendi rhetoric: the region at risk of tragedy
09 August 2019

A couple of days ago Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan addressed an event in Khankendi, which was called "All-Armenian games". But, in fact, the essence of the event was quite uncertain.Experts say he was nervous and unsure, describing his remarks as potentially dangerous for the region. Even the Armenian opposition called the prime minister`s views "absurd". The matter is that Pashinyan once again highlighted Armenia`s territorial claims to Azerbaijan and attempted to present them as Yerevan`s legal right. But the lack of logic behind his arguments is obvious. On the one hand, this "street politician" says "Artsakh is independent" and Yerevan does not interfere with its affairs, while on the other, he calls the unrecognized regime in Khankendi "illegal". Of course, this regime is illegal in a true sense of the word, but it isn`t what the Armenian prime minister means. The real reason why Pashinyan called the Khankendi regime illegal is that he wants to put his own man at its head. It is yet another evidence of Armenia`s policy to establish a separatist regime in the neugbouring state`s lands, patronize it and maintain the occupation of territories.

Thought on the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Azerbaijan's Diplomacy
09 July 2019

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. Azerbaijani étatism surfaced once more on May 28th 1918 under the name Azer­baijan People's Republic. Although the history of Azerbaijani diplo­macy, in keeping with that of the states mentioned above, stretches back centuries, in the modern sense considered as a nation state, its history begins with the founding of the Azerbaijan People's Republic. At the time, Azerbaijani diplomacy faced many tough tasks and numerous problems it had to solve.

Avoiding reconciliation: Armenians distort Washington discussions

Avoiding reconciliation: Armenians distort Washington discussions
25 June 2019

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. It ether distorts the Azerbaijani side`s views, or invents different lies. Armenia is trying to perpetuate the status quo rather than withdrawing from Azerbaijan`s occupied lands. 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.

The place and role of every nation in history is conditioned by the extraordinary mission of a great personality who took responsibility under difficult political circumstances to play an indispensable role in its fate, and laid the foundations of firm statehood traditions with his progressive ideas, unique governance qualities, wisdom and vision.
