Azerbaijan`s chairmanship: Baku giving new stimulus to Non-Aligned Movement
16 August 2019

In the middle of the last century the world was searching for mechanisms to regulate the system of international relations. The establishment of the Non-Aligned Movement in 1955 was a crucial outcome of those efforts. Its fundamental principles were adopted at the founding non-aligned summit in Belgrade in 1961. These principles included establishing global peace, tranquility, peaceful co-existence and principles of fair cooperation. Experience showed that the world needed such an organization badly. Although interest in the Non-Aligned Movement decreased after the Cold War to some extent, later processes highlighted global need in this organization. Many countries are therefore interested in the Non-Aligned Movement becoming stronger. Azerbaijan is assuming two-year chairmanship of the organization this year.

Experts highlight the global geopolitical importance of the Caspian basin. And what is of particular significance here apart from security in the region, is the issue of cooperation. The signing of a set of documents on the legal status of the Caspian Sea in 2018 opened brand new opportunities for mutually beneficial cooperation. In this regard, the Caspian Economic Forum is of particular interest as a unique cooperation format. Held in Turkmenistan, the first Economic Forum gathered high-level representatives from both the Caspian littoral states and several other countries.

This article will highlight the geopolitical importance of Donald Tusk`s visit to Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan and Turkey maintain a special relationship defined by a long history of events and cultural and ethnic connections. Azerbaijanis and Turks belong to the same Turkic identity and share a common ancestor - the Seljuk Empire made up of Oghuz Turks, which represents the foundation to the present-day Turkey and 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 European Parliament adopted two historic documents at one of its recent sessions, identifying the threats faced by the organization and the main principles of counteraction. Brussels obviously treats the problem very seriously because both resolutions focus largely on the existing threats, underlining their destructive role. Hybrid warfare seems to pose the major threat to the European Union. The military element also plays a role here. In fact, a common threat emerges to both the EU member states and young independent countries. This situation jeopardizes sovereignty and territorial integrity of states. In order to tackle these challenges, Brussels decided to determine the principles of counteraction. In this context, this article will look at the geopolitical aspect of EU-Azerbaijan relations.
