Armenia azerbaijan conflict - explained

  1. 1. Armenia-Azerbaijan Conflict - Explained
  2. 2. What's The Issue? A terrain territory called Nagorno-Karabakh aka the Republic of Artsakh is at the centerstage of this conflict. Armenia, a Christian state, claims hold on the region that has Christian majority. Azerbaijan opposes the claim. The roots of the conflict go back to the times of USSR and experts blame Joseph Stalin for it. The similar conflict took place in 1994 and 2006 before this and many people of both sides lost their lives.
  3. 3. But religion isn't the only driving force.... Actually it's the least important factor... Supremacy in the Caucasus region, oil, gas, strategic interests, and politics are involved in this war-like conflict. Azerbaijan's capital Baku has always been the hub of oil. Now, a new gas pipeline is also being built that transfers gas to European Union, which is in dire need of gas. Russia-backed Turkey opposes this move of Iran-backed Azerbaijan.
  4. 4. No wonder, Russia and Turkey have emerged as a two players fighting behind the curtains in this conflict. While Moscow supports Armenia, Ankara has openely asked Armenia to stop it's rhetoric against Azerbaijan.
  5. 5. What's the Situation Now? According to reports, Azerbaijan may have faced huge losses armed & financial front thanks to its undisciplined military and obsolete weaponry. Hundreds of army personnel on both the sides have lost their lives and the civilian lives have been impacted significantly. Armenian army holds a strategic advantage as they are on top of terrains alongside border area.
  6. 6. What's the Role of India? Armenia-India, traditionally, have been friendliest relationship. Even though New Delhi has nothing against Azerbaijan, their slant towards Armenia is visible. New Delhi has appealed for an immediate ceasefire between the two nations. The late External Affairs minister had visited a famous fire temple in Baku, which was once worshipped by both Hindus and Zoroastrians. Azerbaijan is important for New Delhi as the BRI- like North-South International Transport Corridor goes from Azerbaijan.
  7. 7. What's Next? Both Armenia and Azerbaijan have brushed off all the calls of peace coming from external and internal sources. It's hard to decode how the things will turn in the coming future. However, the whole world, including the United Nations, has demanded the ceasefire.
  8. 8. Who's Winning? War is the science of destruction. -John Abott Nobody. Prajakt Writes prajaktwrites.com
