A separatist visiting France, a mediator behaving contrary to international law

A separatist visiting France, a mediator behaving contrary to international law
06 December 2018

Those who protect and support the aggressor Armenia are trying to step up their efforts. It has recently been evidenced by the visit of Bako Saakhyan, a terrorist with the blood of innocent people on his hands, to France. The French President speaks of cooperation with Azerbaijan on the one hand, but attends a Francophonie summit in Yerevan on the other. But he does not come to Baku. In Yerevan, Emmanuel Macron called Armenians "our fellow countrymen". Then he claimed that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be solved fairly through peaceful means. But this charade was over when the Armenian terrorist visited France. That visit demonstrated that one of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries is helping those who committed crimes in Nagorno-Karabakh. It raises questions: Does Nikol Pashinyan receive "NKR representatives should also participate in the negotiations" instructions from abroad? Aren`t certain forces interested in protracting the conflict resolution? In this article we will try to find answers to these questions.

29 November 2018

The U.S.-based Stratfor`s recent assessment of key developments in 2019 has raised concerns.

As regards Azerbaijan, the U.S. may offer it decrease its economic and energy ties with Iran. All this is likely to increase geopolitical risks in the region. In this article, we will elaborate on Stratfor`s assessments of key geopolitical developments in the South Caucasus in 2019.

Anti-Iran sanctions and PKK: Washington playing two cards

Anti-Iran sanctions and PKK: Washington playing two cards
12 November 2018

Two decisions announced by the United States in November have grabbed the global spotlight. Experts admit that although these two events cover different areas, they are interconnected. It is Washington`s decision to re-impose anti-Iranian sanctions and pledge a total of 15 million US dollars for information which could lead to the arrest of three PKK leaders. If we look at the ongoing developments in the Middle East and nearby geopolitical regions from one perspective, we can conclude that very dangerous scenarios may lie behind these two events. If anti-Iranian sanctions encourage tragedy, poverty and disorder in a broader geography, the creation of a new terrorist organization to replace PKK may bring about new tragedies. The United States` efforts to officially rehabilitate another terrorist organization serve this goal. In this article, we will try to analyze possible consequences of these developments.

Azerbaijan successfully hosted the 6th Baku International Humanitarian Forum. This time the motto of the event addressed creativity and human development.
