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.

OSCE`s new resolution: expressing respect for territorial integrity and international law
18 July 2019

It is a well-known fact that settlement of ethnic and local conflicts in different parts of the world remains the main global geopolitical challenge. Particularly, finding a fair and peaceful solution to conflicts in the South Caucasus is high on the agenda.

The document features important views. It provoked inadequate reaction from Armenians because it reflects the reality.

Azerbaijan and Turkey maintain a special relationship defined by a long history of events and cultural and ethnic connections.

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.

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.
