TURKEY-IRAN RELATIONS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF JULY 15(19.10.2016)

Turkey-Iran Relations From the Perspective of July 15

In line with their geopolitical locations, historical backgrounds and strategic aims, Iran and Turkey have been two historically important countries in the region as two neighbour countries with different systems of government. These two medium-sized countries with a legacy of imperialism have become targets for countries outside of the region due their capability to influence regional developments. In these days where we experience change of borders and regimes in the Middle East, especially with regards to the issues of regional stability and security affairs, Iran and Turkey have been forced into cooperation despite the regional rivalry between the two countries. In this w...


IRAN AND RUSSIA - FALSE ALLIES (21.04.2016)

Iran and Russia - False Allies

Relations among countries are not that simple, just like relations among people. Many believe that Russia and Iran are allies, although, a more detailed analysis reveals that is far from being true.  The relations between the two countries have its pitfalls, inconspicuous at first sight. Russia sees itself as one of the world's superpowers, and Iran believes that it is a regional power.

Azerbaijan awaits a tailwind from Washington: An upcoming nuclear summit could reinforce the alliance

Last week, the Obama administration took a positive step in dealing with the United States’ lack of real friendships and genuine alliances in the Muslim world. It acknowledged the critical part Azerbaijan plays in the interdiction of nuclear and radiological materials as a part of the global nonproliferation effort. According to Novruz Mammadov, deputy head of Azerbaijani presidential administration and chief of the administration’s foreign relations department, Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev was invited to attend the fourth Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C., to be held in March.

IRAN, A POST MORTEM NOTE(19.10.2015)

Iran, a Post Mortem Note

As the last debates in the U.S. Senate fade away and President Rouhani receives a hero’s welcome in the UN, it is worthwhile to note the new alliances the U.S. has formed in the wake of this “New middle East.” Chief amongst them is NIAC, the National Iranian American Council, who played a major role in developing and advocating for the nuclear deal.
