Settling Nagorno-Karabakh and Reviewing the Peripheral Talking Points
April 15, 2016

In the April 11 Voice of America piece «What's Hiding Behind Russia's calls for Peace in Nagorno-Karabakh», Paul Goble claims that Russia is manipulating the Armenian-Azerbaijani dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, in an effort to gain a greater allegiance from fossil fuel rich Azerbaijan. This view comes across as a dubious conspiracy theory…

The sudden aggravation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh is fraught with serious consequences.

Ankara vs. Russia: Caucasus Turns into New Battlefront
December 8, 2015

The NATO allies have flatly refused to side with Turkey in its conflict with Russia. Now Ankara is urgently looking for new opportunities to boost its influence in the region and divert the Russia’s attention making it face other «fronts». Turkey has no time to lose as the relations with Moscow may deteriorate further. It makes Ankara hastily take steps to enhance its energy security, establish a coalition of Turkic states it has been fostering for a long time and complicate the situation in the Caucasus to make Moscow face more problems there…

Why Richard Morningstar Is Threatening Azerbaijan with a Maidan
May 30, 2014

Several days ago Richard Morningstar, the U.S. Ambassador in Baku, made a statement in an interview with the Azerbaijani office of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty of a sort which diplomats do not usually dare to make. The American suggested that one of the lessons Baku should learn from the events in Ukraine is that the Maidan could repeat itself in Azerbaijan… The American diplomat's statement regarding the possibility of an «Azerbaijani Maidan» should be considered together with the previous speech of James Warlick, the U.S. Co-Chair of the Minsk Group on the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The speech took place May 7 at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington. The ideas expressed by Warlick – and he unambiguously suggested retuning the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to the situation at the end of the 1980s – was received very frostily in Yerevan…

May 18, 2012

The Foreign Ministerial meeting of Non-aligned Movement last week and its pronouncements particularly in the context of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has revived the old debate whether the body can actually play an effective role in international politics or pass into oblivion as an antediluvian body that emerged as an alternate to bloc politics during the cold war…

OSCE Summit in Astana: No result, but Sustaining the Process Already a Success
December 5, 2010

The initiative to reform the European security architecture – and consequently that of the OSCE – should be credited to Russian president Dmitry Medvedev who proposed back in 2008 a new European security treaty aimed at creating the continent's integrated and indivisible security space. In Astana, Medvedev's initiative upgraded to the Euro-Asian level was upheld by Kazakh president N. Nazarbayev who invoked an idea “to form a single security space bound by four oceans: from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the Arctic to the Indian”…

Downgraded expectations over Nagorno Karabakh talks
September 4, 2010

Tensions and stakes are growing high over Nagorno Karabakh – the negotiations are stalled, the ceasefire regime being violated almost on a daily basis, and the expectations of the international community seem to be downgraded… The biggest challenge for upcoming weeks, of course, will be developed around the UN General Assembly draft resolution A/64/L.57 on Karabakh…
