Azerbaijan continues its habit of distorting history: while accusing Armenia of every mortal sin, it pretends to be a lamb, misunderstood by everyone in the world except Turkey. It was ex-President Heydar Aliyev who first tried to "rewrite" the history. Even now, Baku is trying to prove that the resettlement of Azeris from Armenia was "the doing of Armenians."
Azerbaijan is waiting for Turkish explanations on the opening of Yerevan-Van flights, the latters not matching Ankara’s official stance.
March 20, 2013
A report on the opening of direct Yerevan-Van flights threw Baku into another fit of hysterics. Azerbaijan seems to believe that any Armenia-related step initiated by Russia or Turkey must be coordinated with Baku for fear of the “righteous anger” of Ilham Aliyev.
On the side of the authorities, there should now be thorough investigations into who violated the electoral code and with that produced a burden for their own candidate, Serzh Sargsyan.

On 1 March, five years after the tragedy of post-electoral unrests in Yerevan with 10 casualties, it is worth noting that Armenia today is no longer comparable to Armenia in 2008. Today, all political forces are represented in the parliament, there is freedom of assembly, freedom of the media, the electoral law has been improved following the recommendations of the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission, the technical organisation of the elections has improved, and most importantly, there is no violence on the streets.
Almost every Azeri MP made a point of commenting on the fact, accusing “fraternal” Ankara of congratulating a sworn enemy.

Every now and then, Istanbul turns into a city that poses extreme danger to Armenians. This does not mean it had been safe otherwise; still, sometimes Armenians are facing really hard times. Massacres of 1955 which affected Armenians and Jews along with the Greeks were meticulously planned within Turkey's state policy.
Georgian president's reaction is clear; his efforts to please his Muslim neighbours are collapsing now.

The Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili could not but visit Yerevan, and not because of his preceding visit to Baku. The significance of Georgia's Armenian community in the country's life in far greater than that of the Azerbaijani one, and this has its reasons indeed. Saakashvili, on Turkey's advice, zealously supported the Azerbaijanis, and the Georgian Dream, now at power, is trying to minimize the Muslim influence in Tbilisi.
Decision on development of military-technical relations came as natural follow-up of closure of Gabala radar station in Azerbaijan.

Russian president Vladimir Putin approved the initiative of his government to hold talks with Armenia on signing an agreement on development of military and technical cooperation. A relevant document is published on the official legal information website.
Construction of the 3-meter-high wall was launched in 2011 and mostly aimed to protect the front-line villages.
January 11, 2013
Construction of a wall between the conflicting states has become, so to say, trendy during the past few years. Israel built a wall at the Egyptian border, Cypriote Greeks isolated themselves from the Northern Cyprus, and the U.S. is going to fence off Mexico. Baku decided to join the “trend” by building a wall between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan.
Baku should consider its actions before ordering to shoot down civilian aircraft.
