Europe's Energy Security and the Role of Azerbaijan

Europe's Energy Security and the Role of Azerbaijan
15 April 2019

Today the world's primary energy resources consist of oil, natural gas, coal and in addition nuclear and hydroelectric power plants. Since the last decade new energy resources were added to this list, such as wind and solar energy, which are rapidly increasing in usage. However, data for the last five years show that despite the wide utilisation of alternative energy resources worldwide, the need for traditional energy resources has not diminished. This once more shows how significant Azerbaijan, and its natu­ral energy resources, are for Europe and the world's economy.

70th anniversary of NATO: new stage of disagreements
05 April 2019

The 70th anniversary of NATO was solemnly celebrated in Washington. Celebrations took place against a background of controversial statements. Disagreements among the member states have led to a series of events, which prompted experts and analysts to make forecasts, including on the state of U.S.-Turkey relations. But for some reason one point is disregarded – the United States is now at loggerheads with NATO members. Washington`s stance forced France and Germany to come up with an initiative to form a single European army. In this context, Washington`s motive for unfounded claims against Ankara seems understandable. On the other hand, the role of the Russian factor should not be downplayed. In this article, we will focus on several important aspects of the geopolitical relations among superpowers in the context of the 70th anniversary of the North Atlantic Alliance.

07 March 2019

Azerbaijan celebrates the 27th anniversary of its membership of the United Nations. Experts are unanimously confident that relations between the country and the organization have been developing at a rapid pace since March 2, 1992. Azerbaijan has developed its relationship with the world`s leading organization in all areas since becoming its member.

The then leadership`s political incompetence and provocative actions of certain forces prevented the country from building a sound and fruitful cooperation with the UN. National leader Heydar Aliyev`s return to power marked a turning point in Azerbaijan`s relationship with the organization. It became systematic and fully met Azerbaijan`s independent statehood interests. This article will provide an analysis of the geopolitical aspect of Azerbaijan-UN relationship in this context.

Rejecting truth and justice: The Freedom House`s biased reports

Rejecting truth and justice: The Freedom House`s biased reports
14 February 2019

We have seen many biased and partial reports made by several Western organizations. Some of them address human rights. In particular, we possess enough evidence of "objectivity" of The Freedom House. But the 2019 "report" and freedom of the press "ranking" released by this organization, which serves the Armenian lobby`s interests, is quite ridiculous. The reason is that it even contradicts the opinions of the Western politicians. While Western states point out election rigging, corruption, human rights violations in Armenia, The Freedom House considers the country as "partly free". At the same time, the organization remains committed to its double-standard approach to Azerbaijan. What a hypocrisy, injustice, lie and falsification! Interestingly, in the geopolitical region that claims to be the cradle of democracy, some are stubborn as donkeys. They do not want to understand a simple thing: whoever digs a pit will fall into it. In addition, such a behavior damages these organizations` image among societies. On the contrary, societies regard them as the source of injustice. And who loses strategically? In this article, we will answer this question.
