Regional security: Armenia`s destructive activity and Azerbaijan-Turkey-Georgia cooperation prospects
08 November 2019

Influential political analysts, economists and journalists are now discussing the preconditions for the formation of the security system in the South Caucasus and its future. According to observations, there are a lot of uncertainties surrounding the process mainly caused by official Yerevan`s destructive activities. With its unsuccessful foreign policy, Armenia is increasing uncertainty in the region, causing the emergence of different risks. In addition, Yerevan`s moves come amid Russia`s recent positive steps towards ensuring cooperation and security in the South Caucasus. The geopolitical picture of the region is becoming more and more incomplete.

Turkey`s historic decision: Operation Peace Spring changing balance of power

Turkey`s historic decision: Operation Peace Spring changing balance of power
10 October 2019

U.S. President Donald Trump`s decision to withdraw troops from northern Syria has resonated across the world. There have been different approaches to this decision. Some even said the withdrawal of troops was shameful for America. Especially in the Pentagon there are those who criticized the U.S. president, stressing the necessity of resisting to Turkey. But that would have been an illogical and irrational decision because an ally resisting Turkey and supporting illegal armed groups would have been ridiculous. Experts therefore believe that Washington would not interfere with Ankara`s operation. At the same time, it should be admitted that Turkey undertook a very hard mission because it is confronted by a 110,000-strong well-armed group. Of course, they will be regularly resorting to different tricks. The operation may drag on. But Ankara has no other choice. If Turkey fails this operation, the country may lose its influence in the new world order, which will put all regional nations, including Kurds, at risk.

Azerbaijan`s oil strategy: Contract of the Century as the beginning of a successful path
01 October 2019

Signed in 1994, the world-famous Contract of the Century is one of the sources of pride for the Azerbaijani people. President Ilham Aliyev highlighted this fact in his speech at the ceremony to mark 25th anniversary of Contract of the Century and Oil Workers Day. The head of state reiterated the strategic and geopolitical significance of the project. In their letters to the Azerbaijani President, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, UK Secretary of State for International Trade & President of the Board Trade Elizabeth Truss and UK Minister for Europe and the Americas Christopher Pincher stressed very important points in this regard. It`s obvious that these major powers are interested in cooperation with Azerbaijan and highly appreciate the policy pursued by the country`s leadership.

Patrushev`s Baku talks: in the context of global and regional geopolitical realities

Patrushev`s Baku talks: in the context of global and regional geopolitical realities
09 September 2019

Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev visited Azerbaijan immediately after John Bolton`s tour of Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and Poland. For experts, the visit came as a surprise as much as the US Security Adviser` s trip. Interestingly, Patrushev visited Armenia in August. Experts believe it`s not a coincidence because senior security officials of two superpowers, which are at loggerheads over geopolitical influence in Eurasia, visited two geopolitically volatile regions. What they came with? Both officials affirmed their countries` commitment to the issue of security. But what does really lie behind these statements? In particular, which issues did dominate Patrushev`s agenda?

EU-Azerbaijan relations: Eastern Partnership and a new strategic cooperation model

EU-Azerbaijan relations: Eastern Partnership and a new strategic cooperation model
04 September 2019

Issues surrounding the preparation of a new cooperation document between the European Union and Azerbaijan have recently provoked lively debates. Different opinions are voiced, with some contradicting each other. Official Baku remains patient and committed to its realistic attitude, saying negotiations on the partnership agreement continue successfully. In this regard, experts should focus on one critical point. Azerbaijan prefers equal relations based on mutual respect with countries and international organizations. Protecting sovereignty and national interests is number one priority. As Azerbaijan was dissatisfied with some terms featured in the European Union`s Eastern Partnership program, the country put forward its own cooperation model. And fruitful talks are now being held in this regard.

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

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.

Caspian Economic Forum: a brand new promising cooperation format

Caspian Economic Forum: a brand new promising cooperation format
14 August 2019

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 means that this cooperation format may win serious global support. This thesis seems to be much more convincing taking into account the views expressed at the forum.

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

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 OSCE Minsk Group, which is dealing with the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, is working ineffectively. In some cases, international organizations` documents on the issue do not reflect the reality. From this point of view, the document adopted at the annual session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE PA) in Luxembourg is of great interest. The document features important views. It provoked inadequate reaction from Armenians because it reflects the reality. This article will analyze the provisions of the document from a geopolitical perspective.
