Explainer: Who’s fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, and why does it matter?

first_imgWhat could stop the fighting?Several countries, including Russia and China, have called for a halt to hostilities but so far without any discernible impact. Russia potentially holds the key: it has a mutual defense pact with Armenia and a military base there, but also enjoys good relations with Azerbaijan and has no interest in the conflict spreading. If its diplomacy succeeded, Moscow could earn kudos for ending the fighting at a time when it is under intense criticism on other fronts, including over its backing for Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko after a disputed election and over the poisoning of Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny in Siberia last month, which Germany says was carried out with a nerve agent. President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Sunday but it is not yet clear if he has attempted to talk to Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev. Fierce fighting has broken out between Azerbaijan and its ethnic Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, a new and dangerous eruption of a decades-old conflict.Where and what is nagorno-karabakh?It’s a mountainous, forested patch of land that sits inside the territory of ex-Soviet Azerbaijan and is recognized under international law as part of that country. But the ethnic Armenians who make up the vast majority of the estimated 150,000 population reject Azeri rule. They have been running their own affairs, with support from Armenia, since Azerbaijan’s troops were pushed out in a war in the 1990s. A ceasefire was agreed in 1994 but at least 200 people were killed in a violent flare-up in 2016. Nagorno-Karabakh survives almost totally on budget support from Armenia and donations from the worldwide Armenian diaspora. Why has fighting broken out now?Tensions between the two sides have been building over the summer, and spilled into direct clashes on Sunday. The timing is significant because the outside powers that have mediated in the past – namely Russia, France and the United States – are distracted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming US presidential election and a list of world crises from Lebanon to Belarus. Lower-level clashes in July prompted only a muted international response. Turkey, which held large military exercises with Azerbaijan in July and August, has been even more conspicuous in its support compared with past crises. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday that Ankara would stand by Azerbaijan “with all its resources and heart”. He did not directly address whether Turkey is supplying the Azeri side with military experts, drones and warplanes, as Armenia has alleged and Azerbaijan has denied.What are the risks?Past outbreaks of fighting have killed some 30,000 people since 1988. Already dozens have been killed and several hundred wounded in the latest flare-up. Olesya Vartanyan, an analyst with Crisis Group, said Monday witnessed an increase in deployment of heavy weaponry such as rockets and artillery, bringing a higher risk of civilian casualties that would make it harder to pull the two sides back from all-out war. That in turn could draw in other powers such as Turkey and Russia and destabilize the South Caucasus region, an important corridor for pipelines carrying oil and gas.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho celebrated extravagantly by going into the crowd looking for his son. Torres had earlier set up Andre Schurrle for the opener before Aguero equalised. :: Manchester City 1 Chelsea 1 (September 21, 2014) The odd sight of Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer Lampard playing against them became even more uncomfortable for the Londoners as the veteran midfielder netted a late equaliser for 10-man City after coming off the bench. Lampard, released by Chelsea four months earlier, had joined City on a short-term deal before moving to New York. He refused to celebrate and later admitted he felt mixed emotions after cancelling out Schurrle’s opener. City earlier had Pablo Zabaleta sent off. last_img read more
