The peak of humanity: Baku`s example to the world

The peak of humanity: Baku`s example to the world
05 November 2018

Azerbaijan successfully hosted the 6th Baku International Humanitarian Forum. This time the motto of the event addressed creativity and human development. These issues were discussed in the context of humanity. The two-day forum brought together hundreds of delegates from different parts of the world. President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev made a comprehensive speech at the event. One of the reasons why the forum was important was that turbulence in the South Caucasus has increased amid certain forces` attempts to aggravate the situation. Against this background Armenia tried to host a pseudo-humanitarian event. But it has produced no results. Meanwhile, Baku International Humanitarian Forum addressed a range of pressing issues of global concern. In this context, we would like to look at the geopolitical significance of the Baku Forum.

Francophonie summit in Yerevan: official Paris` historic mistake and "fellow countrymen" of Frenchman

Francophonie summit in Yerevan: official Paris` historic mistake and "fellow countrymen" of Frenchman
16 October 2018

Superpowers pursue independent policies, and every independent country absolutely realizes this. But pursuing an independent policy does not mean that you have to be unjust or biased. But if this "independent policy" is aimed at supporting an aggressor or injustice, then it is very dangerous and poses threat to the whole world. The International Organisation of La Francophonie`s (IOF) holding its 17th summit in Yerevan is not surprising. Armenia is famous for its unstable stance and frequent changes between different geopolitical poles. "Rusophobia" or "Francophonie" does not make much sense for Yerevan. The most important is that the speakers have pro-Armenian attitude. In this regard, the President of France stole the spotlight at the 17th Summit. The impact of his remarks on the global politics will manifest itself in a while. But we think it is necessary to take a close look at some of his views that related to the South Caucasus.

Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Against a background of Russian President`s Baku visit and Dushanbe Summit of CIS

Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Against a background of Russian President`s Baku visit and Dushanbe Summit of CIS
04 October 2018

There is no need to prove how crucial it is to find a solution to the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The whole world realizes this. Unfortunately, the Armenian leaders find it very difficult to understand the significance of settling the dispute in a peaceful manner. Nikol Pashinyan`s government makes controversial statements on the conflict. Against this background, Vladimir Putin`s visit to Baku, which was immediately followed by the summit of the CIS heads of state in Dushanbe, is of particular importance from several points of view. Experts are studying possible connections between vital statements made by the Russian President in the Azerbaijani capital and Pashinyan`s aspiration to speak with Ilham Aliyev in Dushanbe. The Azerbaijani President agreed to talk with the Armenian prime minister, which made the Armenians very happy. They described the fact that President Ilham Aliyev and Pashinyan reached agreement on some issues as a step forward. We would like to look at the current situation in the light of Vladimir Putin`s Baku visit and the summit in Dushanbe.

America Last: Coming to terms with the new world order

America Last: Coming to terms with the new world order
07 September 2018

The last quarter of the 20th century was the heyday of political globalisation. The defeat of communism marked a clear victory for the West and the neoliberal order. According to literature that emerged around this time, the North-centred world order was expected to continue operating smoothly on the platform constructed by the political and economic institutions established after World War II. Approaches and theories that criticised this notion relied on the thesis that "order" could only suffer an existential threat via external influences.

Inauguration of TANAP: Geopolitical Significance of "Energy Silk Road"

Inauguration of TANAP: Geopolitical Significance of "Energy Silk Road"
14 June 2018

As an independent nation, Azerbaijan has initiated a number of international projects. TANAP is the one that stands out because prior to that project all eyes were on a project called "NABUCCO". However, it was eventually scrapped, with the Western countries to be blamed for its failure to materialize. Consequently, Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev, together with Turkey, launched discussions on a new project. Leadership of two brotherly nations decided to move forward with a new project called TANAP. Indeed, they were some that attempted to question its feasibility and undermine the confidence in the project. However, the political will of the leaders of Azerbaijan and Turkey prevented the project from stalling and ultimately, the inauguration of TANAP had taken place in Eskishehir, Turkey on 12 June. The geopolitical and historic importance of that event deserves great attention.

Emmanuel Macron: The Trump Whisperer?

Emmanuel Macron: The Trump Whisperer?
20 April 2018

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a television interview on April 15 that he convinced US President Donald J. Trump not to withdraw troops from Syria. "Ten days ago, President Trump was saying 'the United States should withdraw from Syria.' We convinced him it was necessary to stay for the long term," Macron said in the TV interview. Macron said that he had also persuaded Trump "that we needed to limit the strikes to chemical weapons [sites], after things got a little carried away over tweets." He has since tried to walk back those comments.

Azerbaijan within the Context of the Silk Road

Azerbaijan within the Context of the Silk Road
12 April 2018

Azerbaijan is geographically located on East-West and North-South transportation corridors and its territories were used historically by Silk Road caravans. Therefore, revival of the Silk Road related initiatives would not leave Azerbaijan outside the plans and, on the contrary, would attempt to use the country's transit potential and natural resources as a driver on their way of development from Asia to Europe and back. It is obvious that Azerbaijan is also keen to transform these opportunities into benefits and share them with its neighbours.

Armenia Is An Isolated Backwater Dump Because It Hitched Its Wagon To Moscow

Armenia Is An Isolated Backwater Dump Because It Hitched Its Wagon To Moscow
09 April 2018

Recently, the precarious position of Armenia in its own region and on the global stage came to a fore when a prominent Armenian politician revealed the stark truth about Armenia's economic weakness, compared with the strength of adversary, Azerbaijan. The U.S., its policymakers and, in particular, Congress should take notice.

The Diplomatic Elephant in the Room: Armenia's Russian Oligarch Consul General

The Diplomatic Elephant in the Room: Armenia's Russian Oligarch Consul General
06 December 2017

It is said that politics makes strange bedfellows. Perhaps diplomacy does as well, even more profoundly. At first glance, Sergei Sarkisov seems intriguing in both respects. He is Armenia's consul general in Los Angeles, a Russian citizen, and a notorious Russian oligarch – who owns numerous homes, including a $16 million mansion in Beverly Hills, and is fond of high-end auto racing.

Trade war set to be the United States' next foreign policy quagmire

History is littered with real wars, like those in Afghanistan, Iraq and Vietnam, that were supposed to be won quickly and cheaply but turned out to be the most expensive and inconclusive of quagmires.
