To know about the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, it is important to first know about the location of both countries.
Armenia is also called Armenia, the system of government of Armenia is a republic. It is a landlocked country located in the Eurasian region. Talking about the borders of Armenia, the northern border of Armenia meets Turkey and the eastern border is Georgia. Armenia’s southern border is with Azerbaijan, while Iran borders nearbyAlso from Armenia. The official language of Armenia is Armenian. Armenia has a democratic system of government. The name of the current Prime Minister of Armenia is Nikol Pashin. There are ten provinces of Armenia.
Armenia and Pakistan:
Armenia is a country in the southern Qaf Mountains, bordered by Georgia, Azerbaijan and Iran, with cities, villages and towns, where there are rivers, lakes, mountains, and the mountains are also the Qaf Mountains, but Pakistan’s official According to the position, this country does not exist because Pakistan is the only country in the world that ArmeniaAnd does not accept. This is surprising because Pakistan has no direct conflict with Armenia, the two do not share borders, and neither have any good or bad historical ties between them.
What is the reason that Pakistan is hostile to Armenia, although the President of Armenia has indicated that he wants to develop relations with Pakistan. The reasons for this conflict are historical. First of all, understand the summary that in the opinion of Pakistan, Armenia has invaded the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan.What was usurpation? As India has usurped Kashmir. Similarly, Armenia also occupied Nagorno-Karabakh, which is why Pakistan did not recognize Armenia when it broke away from the Soviet Union and became independent.
If we talk about the country of Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan became independent from the Soviet Union in 1991. Azerbaijan is also officially known as the “Republic of Azerbaijan”. Azerbaijan is the most populous country in Eurasia by population. Let’s look at the location of AzerbaijanAnd Azerbaijan borders Russia in the north, while the western border is with Armenia and the southern border is with Iran. Azerbaijan has a republican form of government and the official language of Azerbaijan is “Azerbaijani”. The unemployment rate in Azerbaijan is 5.2%. Azerbaijan is also a member of the UN, OSCE, and NATO’s peacekeeping program PFP. According to the census of April 2006, 51 percent of the urban population of Azerbaijan and 49 percent of the population consists of villages.
According to the official survey, 96% of the population of Azerbaijan is MuslimBut it is surprising that the official religion of Azerbaijan is not Islam, but the system of skever is prevalent. According to an unofficial survey, 85 percent of the population in Azerbaijan belongs to the Shia sect, while 15 percent belongs to the Sunnis and Jamaat. In 1991, when Azerbaijan became independent from the Soviet Union (Russia).
Turkey was the first to officially recognize Azerbaijan, while Pakistan was the only country in the world that officially recognized Azerbaijan as a country. Relations with Azerbaijan are very goodStay happy. Azerbaijan is an oil-rich country, so after officially recognizing Azerbaijan, Pakistan signed agreements to work together in many fields for cooperation in oil and other fields.
In fact, the matter is that in 1991, both countries became independent from the existing Soviet Union (Russia). When the two countries became independent, just like the state of Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan was created during the partition of India. In the same way between Azerbaijan and Armenia.Karabakh was occupied by Armenia by force, just as the state of Jammu and Kashmir, located between Pakistan and India, was forcibly occupied by India. The reason for the war in Azerbaijan and Armenia is the dispute over the location of “Karabakh” has become a war, just like the wars between Pakistan and India over the state of Jammu and Kashmir from 1948 to 1965 and 1971 have been fought. The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan has turned into a war and threatens more war.
Armenia-Azerbaijan in the warCharacter:
Role of Turkey:
Turkey was the first country to recognize Azerbaijan after its declaration of independence, and Heydar Aliyev, the first president of Azerbaijan, once said that Turkey and Azerbaijan are one nation and two states. The majority of the population of both countries is of Turkish origin. Turkey has not yet established diplomatic relations with Armenia, and Turkey closed its borders to Armenia in 1993 during the Nagorno-Karabakh war.
Turkey has a military base in Azerbaijan, while Russia has a military base in ArmeniaMember of the Collective Security Treaty. The conflict between Turkey and Armenia is old. During the First World War, the Ottoman Caliphate pushed thousands of Armenians from Eastern Anatolia to the Syrian desert and other areas, and these Armenians died of hunger and thirst in the desert. The number of Armenians who died of starvation is disputed.
Armenia claims that 1.5 million people were killed, while Turkey admits atrocities against ethnic Armenians, but says the number is no more than 3 million. TadaThe dispute is the only obstacle to declaring these killings as genocide. Even today, Armenia tries to declare the deaths of its citizens killed during World War I as genocide, while it was also called genocide in the US Congress, but President Trump vetoed it.
Role of Iran and Russia:
Apart from being a partner of Russia, Iran is also a trade partner of Armenia. Iran trades with former Soviet states through Armenia, while also supplying oil to Nagorno-Karabakh via Armenia. Armenia with the European UnionTehran is also benefiting from free trade agreements. Russia uses Iran’s airspace to deliver reinforcements to Armenia.
Above all this, there is also the political problem of Iran. There is a large population of Azeri Turks in Iran and the fear of Turkish nationalism among them haunts Iran all the time. The majority of Iran’s population considers itself to be of Turkic descent, including other Turkic-speaking tribes including Turkmen and Qashqai.
Most of the population of Azerbaijan also refers to the northern region of Iran as South Azerbaijan. 2 crore people in this areaOf Azeri descent, some Azeri intellectuals and nationalists even envisioned uniting the two sections under a political union. The Organization of Security and Co-Operations in Europe (OSCE) is responsible for all ceasefire efforts between Azerbaijan and Armenia, but these days the group is inactive. The group is jointly led by the US, Russia and France, but now both Azerbaijan and Armenia are disappointed with the group. In these circumstances, Turkey and Russia can fill the diplomatic gap.
And can bring both countries to the negotiation table.Both Russia and Turkey, Azerbaijan and Armenia cannot afford to wage a full-scale war, but a limited war can certainly serve each other’s strategic interests. If there is a war, it will benefit Russia and Iran and to some extent China’s Belt and Road Initiative. Now the world media and various newspapers and commentators are talking about a ceasefire and Azerbaijan has announced a ceasefire with Armenia based on diplomatic relations between Turkey and Russia.
Both countries declared a ceasefire:
A ceasefire announcement came as European Council President Charles Michel said he had spoken to Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and told them to blame the difficult situation in the region. Instead of imposing on each other, initiate a ceasefire immediately and de-escalate tensions.
He wrote in one of his tweets The European Union is committed to working with its partners to de-escalate tensions for the prosperity and stability of the southern Qaf region of France. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also supported the statement of the President of the European Council and said in a statement that France calls on all parties to respect the ceasefire. Which he announced on November 9, 2020 after tripartite talks.
