WITH RUSSIA STRENGTHENING ITS ALLIANCE WITH ARMENIA(25.05.2017)

With Russia strengthening its alliance with Armenia

While the group of congressmen who form the Congressional Armenian Issues Caucus continue their unflinching, if not brazen, financial and military support to this South Caucasus nation, it serves as a military outpost for saber-rattling Russia — Armenia even brands itself as one of Russia's important military outposts.In an interview with Izvestia, a Russian daily, Sargsyan declared that Armenia is consistently building up its defense capability in the framework of military-technical cooperation with Russia. Also, he stressed the role of the 102nd Russian military base located in Armenian territory. And in November 2016, Armenia joined the anti-aircraft defens...


THE FOUNDATION OF THE AZERBAIJANI DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC(25.05.2017)

The Foundation of the Azerbaijani Democratic Republic

IntroductionMay 28, 1918 is a historical day for Azerbaijan as it was the day when Azerbaijan was declared   a Democratic Republic, first of the Muslim nations in the East. After the disunion of the Transcaucasian Democratic Federative Republic , the Azerbaijani members of the Transcaucasian Democratic Federative Republic declared that Azerbaijan was henceforth a Republic.  The major countries of the world had been informed about the official and legal foundation of the Azerbaijani Democratic Republic (ADR).It should be highlighted that the national movement which was formed during end of 19th and beginning of 20th century played a crucial role in the foundation of the ...


NEW ARMENIAN POLICY FOR THE NAGORNO-KARABAKH ISSUE(12.04.2017)

New Armenian policy for the Nagorno-Karabakh issue

Azerbaijan's breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region voted in a referendum to change the presidential powers on February 20. The separatist Nagorno-Karabakh region has strengthened the leader's powers in a referendum that international observers warned was illegal.The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is a territorial and ethnic conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which by de-facto, is Armenian-controlled by the self-declared Nagorno-Karabakh regime. Yet, it is internationally recognized as an inseparable part of Azerbaijan.The conflict has its origins in the early 20th century, although the present conflict began in 1988 and escalated into a f...


OBSERVING HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST(13.02.2017)

Observing Human Rights in the Middle East

It becomes evident when traveling in war zones and isolated areas that the most vulnerable in such places are women and young children.In January, on a train bound from Mashhad, Iran, to Tabriz, I met a woman who looked to be in her 30s. Her name was Amir Nedai.Amir and I were sharing a 4-bed passenger cubicle with another couple from Iran; on a ride that would take 24 hours until our destination. Unlike Amir’s short stature, her husband was quite tall. He must not have liked the idea that his wife would be in the same cubicle with a foreign man (he and Amir were placed in different sections), because when he came inside our room, he did not even greet me.It felt ...


OBAMA: PROMISES, BROKEN PROMISES AND COMPROMISES IN US FOREIGN POLICY(5.01.2017)

Obama: Promises, Broken Promises and Compromises in US Foreign Policy

United States of America has a new president elect Donald Trump and Barrack H. Obama has a few days to leave the Office. Obama is a high profile democratic president with a Harvard degree and intellectual background in comparison to Trump. When it comes to keeping up with the promises, no intellectual background is a warrant. So happened with Obama in his two terms.One of the promises Obama kept is ending the war in Iraq which his predecessor had started. It was a war going nowhere, economically and politically putting the US into trouble. However US army is not totally out of the region yet. With its highest number of 180.000  in 2008, it has still got 5.300  soldiers ...
