Azerbaijan, Armenia trade blame for new truce violation
"Talk about the fighting in. Armenia. Azerbaijan to start we've talked about this a couple times the conflict itself started on September twenty seventh over a disputed territory but not everyone can do on Nagorno Karabakh transition like that six years. The NFC. Of talking about this fighting before it's scary for lots of reasons, you know obviously any violence is awful. It's especially when it's harming civilians, but it has the potential to draw in both Turkey and Russia into a broader proxy war. I think that's the bigger concern on Sunday president trump announced his team had brokered a ceasefire between Armenia Azerbaijan, which would obviously be very good thing. But unfortunately, within minutes of that ceasefire coming into effect, both sides accused the other of violating so. It seems unlikely to hold. This wouldn't be the first fire that didn't hold Putin brokered one that was immediately violated the situation on the ground is not good as seen estimates of up to five thousand people who have been killed in the fighting Armenia has accused Azerbaijan of executing prisoners and committing war-crimes. As John is reportedly used cluster munitions which are bombs. They basically released lots of little bombs that can post threats to civilians for years if they don't go off. Bennett impressed at how the Armenian community in the US has organized to raise awareness about the conflict. There have been a bunch of rallies here in La. I'm seeing you know planes dragging signs there's banners everywhere apparently president trump spoke to a group of Armenian Americans in New Hampshire for the weekend and said, ending the fighting would be quote an easy one. So that's good to know So you know the Obama Administration negotiated many ceasefires in places like Syria that didn't always hold. What do you think of this latest effort? Does it tell us anything about whether the US is sufficiently engaged in trying to solve the problem? Well, look I I on the one hand. I'm sympathetic intractable problem. It's been around for decades but were we got from the election so I'm gonNA focus on. Brown here which is. What was wrong was trump going out and spiking the football. You know I mean essentially declaring victory tweeting like as if the United States had just ended this conflict when this is very tenuous I think. You know the fact that collapsed is not a huge surprise to Russian brokered ceasefire had previously collapsed I. Think what needs to happen differently is this needs the broadest possible international engagement. You're just the US just Russia just Europeans not enough like. If we add administration I think a very broad multilateral process that brings in Russia, the European Union, the United States. These countries by the way that are selling arms to both parties to just say like you guys got to pull back from the brink here and deal with this and frankly as revised on has been more the aggressor in this case, and they basically said as much. They said, you know we're tired of waiting for diplomacy to deliver what we think is Arslan back to us, and so we're just going to start killing people including civilians and releasing. Like video footage of drone attacks on Armenians. Really really awful stuff. So I think it's just gonNa take a really muscular sustained multilateral effort with the US involved with other countries to save. We got cut out this fighting and then really start a process of negotiation around these disputed territory. So it's not just a ceasefire everybody kind of goes home, but like drive the momentum from the ceasefire talks into actually addressing these underlying territorial questions, which are there's no, there's no layup answer to that. There's no easy answer. Both sides claim it. You have to figure something out though it's a mix of territory in autonomy for the people who live there for the two warring parties.
Nagorno-Karabakh truce frays amid reports of new shelling
"Alliance to mano, and we're joined by Professor Brenda Shaffer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. I begin with the news. This is Reuters. Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car.

It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old. Body off his daughter. There's a girl who was killed whose birthday was on our additional day, which is the way it is October, so Visit when we go into a cease fire when we're going to come into a negotiation, I want people to understand. If you look at the emotions on the outside when we go Talk to people who do this kind of thing's Ah, Professor. There is a video I have seen

Mean you mentioned the work that you've done in terms of trying to mediate and get get people to talk to each other wise. They're the reluctance to. To figure out how to end a conflict like this in a long simmering debate about this in a peaceful manner. Almost intractable issues that the speech touch with the haunted boats, kind of Jerusalem science by sides You know the but it's an essential part of the nation. That is the intractable problem take. A genius to sort it out. You know that's a very sophisticated framework plan. On the table, which gives but sides actually most of what they want neither side can get everything that they want. I'm the trouble is that to enforce a plan like that you need. Political in I mean by John, which is lacking and a massive commitment by outside powers including. This is crucial sense. Almost impossible to find a peacekeeping force because the geography of this country because we've been seeing, I've lost weight and so complicated that the two armies need to be separated. So. There is a solution on paper, but but how'd you get the? how do you get and reality's very difficult to say in the nineteen nineties ended just because the two sides got exhausted they lost too many young men and I think that that was why.

S. and I present this puzzle to Gordon and also to our guest author Walter the university of Pennsylvania man who is much schooled in Chinese civilization gentleman I have anecdotes not confirm just on the front pages of China morning post but strong anecdotes from very good sources two of them that the Chinese P. LA that is the people's Liberation Army lots of the party is establishing fast caps quarantine caps made up of army tents vast in backwards areas are dated ares with open drainage ditches between the tents these are for the migrant workers who went home for the holiday and have plans to go back to their homes in the cities where they've been working in the Chinese manufacturing these cancer to be established people need to stay there for two weeks if they don't get sick they're released if they do the re concentrated they're going to identify the people and put them into groups but you can see the opportunity for trouble is vast and the Chinese Communist Party can do this because they're non transparent and because the Chinese people ark how'd or in some fashion used to trading there of BDS for GDP that just disappeared our third I cannot confirm it but I've seen the videos I am surprised at how badly the Chinese Communist Party continues to behave are you surprised actually I am surprised I wouldn't say badly that I've I've always thought their wicked but they're behaving in a transparently incompetent way now so it's quite clear with they're doing for instance you're talking about the P. L. A. campus life also built some new hospitals and I've been bragging about how they build them in ten days currently these are pre fabricated prison buildings from Turkish day of which have been moved down and this explains why they have bars on the windows and all sorts of things that you wouldn't expect in purpose built hospitals we've also had some other news which confirms they've got big problems there is a on Saturday night there was a open an internet presentation they have a little louder count the number of sick and so forth and it's kind of failed to act properly three times this each time you've gotten a glimpse long enough for people to take a web of of take a photograph and the numbers that it shows are just incomparably bigger for instance it showed on Saturday a hundred and fifty four thousand infected people which is ten times the official FAQ to figure eighty thousand suspected cases which is four times the official figure and then listen to this one twenty five thousand dead on a day when the official listing of three hundred so if there is clearly the huge cover up going on here or at least that's what I'm saying and I think that if you start concentrating these people it's going to make things worse it's also going to make it quite obvious this is the disaster of the sort that I I can think of unless you go back to the terrible died in these terrible plague food the tongue dynasty you know in the sort of seven hundred Gardner this is Gordon I think that essentially the Chinese people understand right now that there is a big discrepancy between what they can see and what the government is reporting and my sense is that this sensually any trust that did exist before the corona virus outbreak between the people and the Congress party is is now gone and that this is going to have to have consequences after this disease goes away and when the recriminations really began to dominate the national conversation it just seems to me that is can be extremely difficult for the party to get past this one largely because people understand just the party completely fumbled its response to something it should have been able to deal with I I think that's exactly right I think recrimination is the word we have many examples of how people who tried to give early warning in fact as long ago as five years there were warnings the what I'm gonna say in just a second might have trouble who we might ask the question why is it all wheel hot wives of people flying in from all this that and the other because the official narrative is these germs are coming from wild animals the interact with people and it's a kind of form of evolution is going on and that that one day a new form of of corona virus appeared in a bouncy feel free market and move on and somehow jumped into a person and that was the case one we have about a minute or so it'll still free market that why should be you hire the answer is through high is the only city which is got a level for biological enviro logical laboratory where they keep stocks of all of these things so it's sort of like say well I think the reason I saw that lever on the street was that came out of the zoo and that's why I thought this town I didn't see it in any of the towns that don't have food and analyses of the new virus show there are apparently have been insertion of DNA and so forth which are not naturally occurring wrists are certainly have not been found in natural specimens and just for good luck there is a chunk of sars virus which is also been inserted so it looks as if what we really have here is a French build biological experimentation station which is designed for the most virulent path we have thirty seconds are there thirty seconds that experiment designed to create a virus leads to the escape of a virus and then if not at all surprising what happens then are there walls in the university of Pennsylvania I'm in Baku Azerbaijan I am here thanks to Scala dot com my global partners at the embassy of Azerbaijan in the U.

situation not unlike what existed between India and Pakistan after the partition of moms in both countries attacking people of the other country who happen to live on their territory so that the back background what happens specifically leading up to the to the massacre of of twenty January is that as you said the Red Army was is in present in force around Baku there were fights taking place you can call them part groans just as there were programs taking place on the Armenian side but the economy the Red Army did nothing and nationally only one order finally came from Mr garbage at himself

that it's become a way of Azerbaijan remembering how hard it's worked is the way I take this now look what we've done and we remember our roots much the same way we remember early conflicts like the Boston massacre that led to the creation of the Continental Congress in other words there the shot heard round the world and in Lexington yes indeed but beyond that I I think there there what we tend to lose sight of is that there was a growing and deepening spirit of national identity religious identity cultural identity new call of a you name it all over the former Soviet Union all of whom were rebelling against the concept which was the Soviet concept of a of a merging of nations so when we look at the world today where we have many people asserting identity again we should learn very soberly we should learn from the experience of the Soviet Union which pushed it super national analogy if you will also be at identity down pays people's throats and they rebelled and eventually overthrew the USSR I'm Fred we're at the edge of a voter parliamentary vote and I'm going to be in Azerbaijan in back for the parliamentary vote I take it this is a way of signaling that Azerbaijan is now moving sophisticated Lee into the world of democratic politics and also feels confident enough in a rough neighborhood to to stand for you know competing parties is that a way to take this well I it certainly is a step in that direction it has been a very controlled system very powerful role for the president and certainly mind minority parties and have suffered and had a difficult time but there is a wave of reform taking place across Central Asia and the Caucasus and it can be seen also in in in Armenia neighboring Armenia and they can be seen and especially and was back and stand but also in Kazakhstan this is something very very important and by looking at each specific case alone we're missing the bigger picture and that is a at the height finally moving beyond the soap post

"Of Azerbaijan it is a resource rich country that is going to transform the whole region it also is a country of a surging population I see lots of baby carriages in Baku so therefore I turned from knowing about the resources that are going to be use fossil fuel resources going to be used for the security of Europe and Asia minor to thinking about diversification of the economy and I'm very fortunate to have here in the port of Baku which is a brand new glass tower with great cappuccino on the first floor a mean Hussein off aid to the first vice president who's going to educate us about the thinking now about the economy and the thinking about what the economy will look like in twenty five years for the new population and the population here already I mean a very good evening to you thank you for this all right it's not only about a fossil fuel resources it's about the wealth that will come from that and transforming that wealth into a knowledge economy what does it look like good evening to all good evening Sir thank you for having me and welcome to Baku Azerbaijan it's always a pleasure to have such well known people as such as yourself to be here and to actually see first hand what's going on so we hear in Azerbaijan a living through quite interesting times it's been quite a journey since the collapse of the Soviet Union and I'd like to set the stage a little bit by providing some background on what we've been through all this year's to be in position to better understand what is coming next good this is Christmas time nineteen ninety one Soviet Union collapse and all of the attendant countries including Azerbaijan. were cut loose on the route yeah here we go the only difference as what John had at that time is that it started its real economic reforms much later than many other so former Soviet republics and also much later than eastern European transition countries so that was quite the a striking difference we lost about two years due to objective reasons because the country was under threat by military aggression by one neighbor country and it was no time for us to think about how to build up the market economy at the time. this is there was a second difference that was really distinguishing Azerbaijan at the time which is we are we were the country which experience the deepest recession among go older former Soviet republics we lost about sixty percent of Paul were pre ninety one GDP and that was the the biggest collapse among all other countries so that really put us in a very disadvantageous position from the very outset. but the third difference of Azerbaijan experience was that during the short period of time and when you got a list of the fact that we experience the largest recession we actually were also the country which has a covered the fastest in just about the two thousand five we have fully recovered the pre ninety one GDP in just three years we doubled it and by two thousand fourteen we tripled over GP so that was a tremendous trajectory of gross translating into people's slow quality of lives and will be and that was the also tremendous transformation that we've been observing people who would come to Baku in early in the late nineties and then about five years later they couldn't recognize the city so and it's interesting to understand what it's like to leave through that kind of transformation that's one question the second question is what is it based on how sustainable is that. and the you know how can we actually make a quality change based on that kind of transformation. so this questions are really have been on the top of the is it a gender of economic policymakers for quite a you know more than a decade. and of course the answers are not simple so the there like there there are things that we need to take into account including the international experience the experience of other countries similar to Azerbaijan in this or another way so I just wanted to draw your attention to one fact which is the well known by now that Azerbaijan is a resource rich and free and the the fact that we have come under quite sue is external shocks in the past twenty twenty five years have been a yeah giving us some lessons for example I wanted to talk about two thousand fourteen collapse in oil prices the second half of two thousand fourteen we so global oil prices come down and two thousand fifteen in an effort to cope with that challenge of central bank has to the value of a national currency but two times so that translated into a radical fall off living standards double digit inflation. complete loss of confidence in the banking sector as well as a shift from a very substantial surplus in the balance of payments into quite a significant deficit so this actually the walls of very major test to the economist has a budget. and as a result who starting from two thousand sixteen we started the macro economic stabilization programs and the structural reforms and which actually was mainly focused on trying to re establish macroeconomic stability and then of course trying to push for over two more radical structural reforms to increase the role of not all sectors in other words to actually. try to pursue the diversification agenda more vigorously. and here's the point that I wanted to drive that talking about knowledge economy yes and I wanted to draw your attention to one of them. recent. research number the World Bank. wore a Eurovision countries trying to understand where developing comes from is the versification is such a fundamental factor for development. by the fact that by the way I need to mention that there is no evidence worldwide the diversification is necessarily leading to the development. it is neither a cocinar effect so we've seen countries which are well diversified and they grow well well well but we also see countries were not well diversified they still growing well so there's no a clear cut evidence suggesting that if we diversify our experts and we become a developed economy. so then that points us to the issue what is more important. to diversify our experts to diversify our assets. and this is what the World Bank is saying they're saying that. if you consider your national wells comprised of three different components. natural wells produced wells. an intangible wells. natural wells being. natural resources. produced wells being all the infrastructure and the capital that you put together as it as the economy. and intangible wells meaning the human capital and institutions. institutions here imply rules of the game. so in if you look at the composition of this three components of natural world in the case of Azerbaijan you see a dominance of natural wells. so we when we started exploiting all were Kara a hydrocarbon resources and that gave us immensely natural resource wells that was accumulated partly under partly it was directed to producing a more than infrastructure physical social we see a lot of bridges we see a lot of roads water supply irrigation so the throughout Azerbaijan the infrastructure has been upgraded to the top much level. and that actually is going to be the two all were produced capital produced wells but what we lacking and what we need to really shift of focus too is to invest more in human capital and invest more in building more effective more efficient market institutions I want to ask about that when we come back at him because what I've observed over the time of my travels here is that you have a lot of smart young people who speak many languages on like in America we only speak New York Yankees language and so I wanna I wanna hear what you're thinking about going overseas to educator educating here in building your university structure I'm speaking with the aid to the president a first vice president of the Republic of Azerbaijan and mean Hussein off where they've been and where they're going given that their natural resource rich and
