Georgia and Azerbaijan: From Partnership to Interdependence
05 July 2017

The fates of Georgia and Azerbaijan have been closely linked for most of their histories, and now this is true more than ever.

The Globalization and transformations on the international scene as well as within the societies in individual countries, provoked by such processes, are most certainly among the major challenges of our times. Ultimately, the globalization is about universal values, multicultural environment, tolerance towards the differences and astronomic speed of the processes and developments. Therefore, those aspects cannot but be reflected in the new world order.

New Legislature in the U.S. Congress: Testimony to Double-Dealing Attitude

New Legislature in the U.S. Congress: Testimony to Double-Dealing Attitude
18 May 2017

According to media reports, the U.S. Congress has passed the budget bill for 2017. The document contains reference to Ukraine and Georgia and reiterates the America's support of their territorial integrity. To that end, certain objectives have been set before the appropriate government agencies and funds have been earmarked. Any country that aims to undermine Georgia and Ukraine's territorial integrity would be deprived of the U.S. assistance. Everything is totally understandable and there is nothing extraordinary about it. Yet, the very document contains no reference to Azerbaijan's sovereignty or support of its territorial integrity. There is an abstract regarding the allocation of $100 million to defend the post-Soviet countries from "Russian aggression". However, the document fails to mention specifically the occupation force – the aggressor Armenia. What is the reason? If Russia is classified as an "aggressor", then what category its closest ally Armenia that for 20 years has occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan's territory falls in?

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.

Nagorno-Karabakh and foreign policy of superpowers: a new "crossroads"?

Nagorno-Karabakh and foreign policy of superpowers: a new
19 January 2017

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov`s remarks on the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict made on January 17 has provoked mixed reactions. Azerbaijan remained discreet. Some Russian and Armenian media outlets launched a propaganda campaign, alleging that Lavrov`s statement was in favour of Armenia. This both undermines the peace talks and distorts the truth, constituting another serious impediment to a fair settlement of the conflict.

Resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict in 2017: Peace or War?
18 January 2017

Resolution of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno Karabakh conflict remains the primary objective for Azerbaijan's foreign policy. This conflict has already defied regional boundaries and now poses a great threat for the political configuration across a wider geography. Meanwhile, the Armenian side aims to mislead the world by persisting that the conflict has religious roots and to that end it is engaged in a broad international propaganda.

Armenia`s policy of illegal settlement: in the wake of resolution 2334...
17 January 2017

The United Nations Security Council has adopted a resolution urging Israel to stop building settlements on the western bank of the Jordan River. The resolution was adopted by votes of four permanent members, with the USA abstaining. Official Tel Aviv sharply rebuked Washington, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused directly Barack Obama. Israel said it will not fulfill the requirements of the resolution. This situation raises a question: Why does the UN Security Council remain indifferent to the policy of illegal settlement that has been carried out by Armenia in Azerbaijan`s Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent districts for decades? This encourages Armenia`s impunity on the one hand, and sets a precedent for other states to violate international law on the other. This is why the UN Security Council resolutions largely remain on paper.
