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.

Armenians' True Motives behind Falsification of Historical Truths

Armenians' True Motives behind Falsification of Historical Truths
06 June 2018

It is publicly known that the scope and geography of Armenian falsifications has been extensive. Throughout the history, they ranged from politics to our daily lives, including historical and religious monuments, personalities, geographic names, cultural heritage, heraldry, numismatics, gastronomy and etc. In other words, myths based on lies cover all domains. In the meantime, it has not been just Azerbaijan and the Turkic world that experienced such falsifications and misappropriations. That had befallen any people that Armenians ever came across.

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.

The headquarters of the country's railroad commission is an imposing building. Lots of people climbed the stairs into the lobby where a dozen voting booths were used by dozens of people every few minutes to cast their short paper ballots for president. Out of each private voting booth came men and women who walked their ballots to a large clear plastic box with a slot on top. The ballots were inserted into the box to be counted after polls closed.

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.

Struggle for Territorial Integrity of Georgia Armenian Bagramyan's Battalion versus the Azerbaijanis of Borchali

Struggle for Territorial Integrity of Georgia Armenian Bagramyan's Battalion versus the Azerbaijanis of Borchali
15 December 2017

Throughout the history of humankind the Caucasus has always been a tumultuous region. This primarily has to do with the region's geographic and strategic location as well as with the fact that it sits at the crossroads of different religions and civilizations. The very factors are significant for the identifying the geographic posture of the Caucasus in our millennium. That being said, the current situation's semblance of a powder keg is directly attributed to the mass resettlement of the Armenians in this region in the wake of Russia-Turkey and Russia-Iran wars. It is no coincidence that in the course of history in the last 200 years Armenians have undermined stability in the entire Caucasus and served the destructive purpose at the behest of the large powers in the capacity of a "fire iron". That destructive function has been evident in the independent republics of the South Caucasus – Azerbaijan and Georgia – and also all across the Caucasus in general.

Reviving an Ancient Route? The Role of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway

Reviving an Ancient Route? The Role of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway
04 December 2017

Though the initial idea about the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTK) railway project was raised in the early 1990s, it was not taken seriously due to regional instability and economic difficulties. However, with the realization of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil and the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipelines in 2006, the idea of a railway connection became real once again. The BTK, covering 850 km with a capacity of 5 million tons of cargo (upgradable to 15 million) per year and one million passengers (upgradable to three million), and connecting Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, was launched in 2007 (Klimas and Humbatov, 2016:38; Uysal, 20 October 2014).It was launched without any international backing mainly because Armenia was left out due its occupation of nearly20 percent of Azerbaijani territory after a war in the early 1990s that ended in a cease-fire in May 1994.

Those Who Shun the Truth: Belgian Judge and New Chapter of Slander

Those Who Shun the Truth: Belgian Judge and New Chapter of Slander
27 September 2017

The campaign of slur, slander and fabrications against Azerbaijan is ongoing in some media outlets in Europe. Two Belgian newspapers have recently joined the race. In their publications they have attacked the judge of Belgium's Constitutional Court Jean-Paul Moerman for the veracity of his remarks on Azerbaijan. Illogical as it may seem, the European media is accusing Moerman of pro-Azerbaijan bias. Mr. Moerman's truthful remarks concerning the Khojaly genocide, Armenia's aggression and indifference of the international community were not met with objectivity. There is seemingly a euphoria in the West that whenever anything positive is said of Azerbaijan it must certainly be refuted. And that absolutely defies any legal or moral boundaries.

What on earth is Trump saying?

Trump prides himself on unpredictability, but, as the attack in Syria showed, there is a price to be paid for leaving allies and enemies alike guessing about your intentions.
