Part I Why and when the mediations? A theoretical approach and practical experiences It is known from the theories of diplomacy and conflict resolutions that in principle conflicting parties are willing to start to resolve their differences when they are ready to forego unilateral means for attaining a settlement favorable […]
Today, one of the most contested areas from the global perspective, together with Kosovo-Metochia in the Balkans, is in South Caucasus – the landlocked region of Nagorno-Karabakh (the Mountainous/High Karabakh as opposite to the Lower Karabakh) as disputed land between the Armenians and the Azeris. A recently renewed military conflict […]
The disaster visiting the Armenians was not a local or isolated event. It was the result of a premeditated decision taken by a central body… and the immolations and excesses which took place were based on oral and written orders issued by that central body.
Any serious unrest in Georgia, let alone an outright regime change, might disrupt its connectivity prospects and negatively impact on the emerging Multipolar World Order, which is why the Azerbaijani authorities must prepare themselves for what might be this regional “protest” movement’s inevitable expansion inside their borders.
The events in Armenia are the destabilization of this state that corresponds chiefly to the interests that the US and its allies have in provoking problems right in the center of the Russian-Turkish-Iranian Multipolar Tripartite at this sensitive geopolitical time.

Russia endeavors to be the supreme balancing force in 21st-century Eurasia, seeking to “wipe the slate clean” in its relations with non-traditionl partners.
The long-standing Russian allies are diversifying their ties with Moscow for different reasons, though the end result hasn’t been lost on the Kremlin.

The unprecedented upsurge in violence along the Line of Contact between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh has raised universal concern that a larger conflict might be brewing, with some analysts seeing it as an outgrowth of Turkey’s destabilizing anti-Russian policies over the past couple of months. As attractive as it […]
The first two parts of this series explained why the OSCE Minsk Group is inadequate for resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and why the SCO is the only realistic alternative for doing so. This final piece will look at how the US intends to stop that from happening, and what Azerbaijan […]
