Mutual-appreciation anxiety: Putin and Erdogan
"At a rally yesterday the prime minister of armenia nicole passion. Yon warned of an attempted military coup. He told crowds. It was the army's job to defend the country. It was up to the people to decide whether or not he should step down. Y'all guy even hats manhattan borough. She mr young has faced protests since a peace deal struck in november. In which is our by. John gained territory in nagorno-karabakh a largely ethnic armenian enclave. Mr john has protests since a peace deal was struck in november in which is by john games territory in nagorno-karabakh a largely ethnic armenian enclave clashes over the region had erupted repeatedly since nineteen ninety-four drawing in russia which stood behind armenia and turkey which back oscar by john but in the end it was russian president vladimir putin and his turkish counterpart rany tight air to one who put it all to rest. Brokering a peace deal. That's just one sign of remarkable political alliance. It's picking away at the post cold war geopolitical order so i think it helps to go back to the really low point of relationship which was in two thousand fifteen. Daniel franklin is our diplomatic editor. Turkey shot down a russian warplane which had been flying over syria. Entered it's ass base and this happened. After repeated warnings to the russian pilot in the warnings became increasing urgent they were ignored and turkish f sixteen fighters that were patrolling shot. The plane down remember turkey is a nato member and had engaged with russia militarily. That's not something that happens. Often and russia responded quite vigorously by imposing sanctions on turkish products and a bombed ethnic tuchman fighters in northern syria that allies of the turks so that was Towards the end of two thousand fifteen and into the beginning of two thousand sixteen but it was a dramatic shift. If you remember in the summer of two thousand sixteen there was an attempted coup jet sopa head. The world watched in shock as a military coup and in turkey eight. Us ally a major strategic partner in the fight against isis putin was quick to call president of and commiserate show solidarity is some suspicion in turkey. Anyway that gave some advance warning to add one that his life was in danger helped move him out of the area where he might have been bombed and from that point onwards things have changed dramatically in the two men developed this kind of own tone this brotherhood of hard power. And what is it. That had changed between the downing of the bomber and this evan beginning of a friendship they first of all recognize in one another leaders who know how to use power in a full full way but there are other similarities between them in terms of that authoritarian style of leadership at home. And there's a common set of grievances against the west in turkey's case decades of not being properly accepted wanting at one stage to join the european union but being put on hold. And i think one of the reasons why the attempted coup was such a turning point for adwan is that he came under attack from his own planes and he felt that nato had improperly come to support nato countries were slow to express solidarity so he started to think that maybe putin was someone could depend upon for his own survival where he couldn't necessarily depend on nato partners and how the relationship between these two men evolved since then it's developed in some very concrete ways add one has bought from russia s four hundred air defense system. So it's a nato country. Remember that is buying russian. Ed defense system that does not delighted his nato partners. It's meant that it's been kicked out of the f thirty five fighter jet program that Nato has its face sanctions from america and despite all that it's gone ahead and on the ground in particularly serious led to kind of accommodation even though they're on opposite sides they've managed to accommodate each other's objectives in particular turkey vis-a-vis the kurds and most recently they've accommodate each other in the south caucasus. Where again they support opposite sides. The russia has played its role as a mediator. Turkey supported azerbaijan. And they've managed to end up with a result that suits them both well. Russia has peacekeeping troops on the ground. Turkey has an economic opportunity and the air that causes missed out has got nothing out of this is the west. You mentioned the word accommodating in the sense that that perhaps they're just essentially keeping out from under each other's feet or is there more to it than that. There is more to it than that because a particularly developed closer ties economically. The two economies have been struggling so they can do all the support they can get and although russia has a big surplus with turkey. Turkish contractors get a lot of business from russia. So there's the economic aspects of the relationship is particularly important and putin to have turkey as awkward member of nato driving a wedge within nato. That's a huge attraction for him and for to and sometimes to be able to play off the west and russia that's also helpful so that they play the power game very effectively by using each other and given all of that. Would you call this alliance proper and if so what should the west make of it well. It's a remarkable development given the long history between the two countries going back centuries. It's remarkable when you think of the more recent history of of the to literally coming to blows as recently as two thousand fifteen but it's far from being an alliance turkey is still a nato member that's valuable to it and it's also bristled it's fragile. Remember they are on opposite sides even where they're accommodating each other in places like syria in libya they have differences over ukraine over georgia as well so there are many places where this could deteriorate rapidly. It's rather brittle its recent depends too much on personalities with big egos so does mean that. There's absolutely no guarantee that this is going to last or even develop further so in that sense. You think the west doesn't need to worry because the alliance will eventually fall apart from. It's the concern for the west. It's certainly a challenge. One of the things that will be on the radar screen of the biden administration. It's a worry that there is this increasingly close relationship between her big important nato member and russia and although it's bristol although it could blow up in various ways it's a serious concern and worry that a nato member like turkey could drift further away from its moorings

Ethnic armenians menia is acting as the guarantor of security of armenians of nagorno karabakh and other by john launch take direct attack on nagorno-karabakh aunts. Armenia has certain obligations to provide the security of nagorno-karabakh. Xinyan a very interesting character. Because he's been there for a couple of years now. He's only in his early forties and he came to power what was called a velvet revolution. The potential for change nationwide brought nicole. Passion yan to power in mass protests replaces very unpopular. Says saga sim. And he was ousted in a popular revolution. Really but the problem for the xinyan. Is that saga. Sim was a friend. An ally of ladimir putin in moscow so moscow was not impressed. The shinhan took over power and not as one of the calculations. The meanings have to make as they decide a way forward. Russia comes up a lot. Why is that one of the calculations. Well i think in the last thirty years also. Russia has been one of the three countries involved in what they call this group. It was set up after the conflict. Russia the us and france to try and mediate a solution. But the haven't the hasn't been a solution reaching the pastor. Two years on russia has been criticized really because it maintains relations with both countries former soviet republics. It sells weapons both countries which is not technic as opposed to do as part of this mediation grew it does so it has great influence and power over these two countries but yet it has not been able to force some sort of solution. Russia also has a formal security agreement with armenia. That seems to make this even more complicated. does it. Russia is committed to helping the security of armenia as it has an arrangement with other former soviet republics. Putin made it clear he was talking about. Armenia and nagorno-karabakh is not armenia recognized as a by johnny territory. So russia would be forced in a way to step in to defend armenian. If it were directly attacked you would then gets the calculation from these areas as long as they keep it to nagorno-karabakh and russia is not going to get involved so part of what makes this messy are. The outside influences other nations are getting involved. there's turkey turkey's involvement well. This is a new dynamic in this. Turkey has always been an ally of azerbaijan. It's a cultural ally and ethnic. They share the same turkic rooted languages. But reggie type on. The turkish president has been very vocal. This time and his support of azerbaijan. He along with his foreign minister have said they believe. In the last thirty years this minsk group that supposed to have mediated some sort of resolution to nagorno-karabakh has failed. They've not produced any results. So why should as a by. John have a ceasefire. Why should they not push. Until there is a resolution in of as abidjan now turkey's accused even by by franson and russia of supplying mercenaries from syria. Turkey denies this but there is turkish involvement in assisting azerbaijan. The prosecution of this conflict turkey's history with armenia has been troubled. Does that have an effect. Well i mean from the million perspective. Of course they will always be extremely suspicious of any turkish alliance with abidjan in armenia. They firmly believe that. Turkey's out to kill more armenians. We know that it's cools. There is what many countries except as the armenian genocide. Turkey says. he's not genocide but admits. Many many armenians fled turkey in the in the mid twenties joined the creation of the state of turkey and the collapse of ultimate and so many armenians believe turkey's trying to finish.

"Looking at the images you can tell. The bunkers are dark and dam and the fact that there are bunkers everywhere shows. How common conflict is here inside.

We don't know how they are but we are meanings are strong. We are patient and there are two sides to every story at least particularly this one. So bernard has been covering the armenian side. of course. I have my colleague in azerbaijan. Covering thoroughly that side of the story. That forces shelling turtur region officer bay. John pushed thousands of civilians out out. Zero simcoe cielo has been reporting on. Were also seeing casualties and destruction as rocket and missile attacks planned on their side of the border torture with their kids and father. Four days ago asking. I became dispaced once again. Like i was in one thousand nine hundred. Four million forces occupied our land. We slept in tents. We finally settled in totta but we had to flee without even a mattress to sleep on. Why should my child suffer. What i suffer and we'll get back to them in a little bit but i i wanted to ask bernard how all of this started so for many people. I imagine this might be the first time. They're hearing the name nagorno-karabakh. I know that this so called frozen war between armenia. Azerbaijan has been going on for a long time. But can you take us back. A few decades to win the last full scale war broke out show so right at the very beginning. I sort of emnity between azerbaijan. And armenia can go back hundreds of years. And the armenians see nagorno-karabakh as a very cultural important places full of ancient armenian churches but there's areas see nagorno-karabakh equally culturally important to them. It was a muslim khan for centuries ruled by a con so they have great connection to it as well so when you know how deep the connections aw from both sides of nagorno-karabakh you begin to understand how intractable they say and then they fought this brutal war by the end of the age of the beginning of the nineties as the soviet union broke up. The armenians of karabakh voted during the soviet times to secede and become an independent republic. But it never got approved by moscow because the soviet union was breaking up so it never happened in moscow the hammer and sickle is lord for the last time and an era comes to an end and they ended up in this almighty war. Some thirty thousand soldiers alone would killed. And then there's been this very uneasy ceasefire since then more than twenty-six years. Can you talk about after the break-up of the soviet union what that looked like in terms of these different enclaves of people so at the time of the break of the soviet union it was majority armenian in nagorno-karabakh ethnically armenian and there were people living there as well but they fled. These areas have all been driven out of the clave and hundreds of armenian refugee families who originally left because of starvation and the bloody fighting have now returned to their homes but also happened at the end of this. War is that armenia ended up taking another chunk of land to the western side of nagorno-karabakh occupying another seven provinces of what is arguably asari territory and there was some half million series living there and they fled in hundred ninety. Russia declared the ceasefire and nagorno karabakh remained part of by on under international law despite its ethnic armenian population. We must remember that nagorno-karabakh. He's not part of armenia. What's happened is the ethnic armenians in armenia of gone to help the fight in nagorno-karabakh but it's not technically fight of armenia against azerbaijan. So none of these issues have been resolved. So how did this aggression started up again this time. Do we know their dispute. There is dispute. Yes it's not clear how this fighting began both sides accuse each other of starting the latest hostilities senior. Sean blame each other. There's always been this line of content. That runs between azerbaijan and nagorno-karabakh this heavily militarized line of contact with man trenches. Sometimes only one hundred meters apart from each other all the time soldiers get killed in small scale fights over the as across that line of contact. But it flat up this time on this time is a by jan. launched a full-scale salts all nagorno-karabakh. I what he's clear this time. Round as a by. John has much greater as periodicity.

"It's a mess by introducing you to one great show from somewhere around the world that we think you're gonna like this week. We're gonna hear an episode from a show that i'm really into called the take. The show is produced by aljazeera and it features reporting from the networks journalists all around the world. What i really like about it is the way it to focus on places that other news organizations neglect the episode. We're going to hear today. For example focuses on nagorno-karabakh disputed territory that armenia. Azerbaijan are now fighting over. The conflict is turned into an ugly little war. And what makes it scarier. Is that each of the two sides. Has this very powerful backer waiting in the wings. Russia in armenia's case and turkey azerbaijan's who could easily get drawn into the fight. Which would make things much bigger and much much worse before we get to episode. Here's a snippet of my conversation with the takes host. Malaysia ball heimlich. It's it's great to have you on so there's so much going on in the world right now. How do you decide what to cover each week. That is a question at thank you so much for having me on So every week of course like most teams. We have an editorial pitch. Meeting and our purview is the world so it is a times difficult to narrow down the the news of the world into three episodes. Because that's what. We published. Monday wednesday friday. But it's usually on. Where can we get the best sound. What are the top stories. And also what do we think we can add to the conversation that people don't already know or they haven't already heard or they haven't already watched on aljazeera english. And when you sit down at the mike or you scope bud each episode before. Do you have a particular audience in mind. Who do you think of speaking to. When you're you're on the mike so that actually has been top of our minds right now because we've been focused on the us election for a lot of our coverage And we constantly have to remind ourselves that we are speaking to an international audience the majority of our downloads of the past thirty days have come from outside of the united states so while we do have a really big segment of listeners from the us there's also a lot of international listeners. And so one story in particular you know we're doing a story on voter suppression and we're also talking to our colleagues and other bureaus and friends. Who live around the world and one person mentioned to us. We don't understand why it's so hard for americans to have voter. Id the have id. Because in so many other countries there is a national idea system whereas that's not the case in the us and so it made us think. Oh wait a minute. We're going to have to explain why it is so difficult for people to get an id because the us doesn't have that kind of system so that's always in. The bathtub reminds making sure that our audiences are on the same page as we are. And we're on the same page as they are not. I guess not assuming that they know a us story inside out just because we happen to be based here in the us right just as an aside. What do people overseas make of. What's going on here. Does it just seem crazy to them. Yes yes So i remember covering the two thousand sixteen election and at the time we weren't sure how much interest there would be from outside of the country and there was actually a lot of interest and that only picked up again this election cycle because there is so much intrigue and there is so much just kind of a fascination of watching this story unfold from afar and not having to live it so we find that there is an audience for the. Here's an appetite for but there's also a hankering for understanding the underpinnings of it a why we're seeing this. Why politicians act the way they act why we see the headlines that we see So the episode. We're going to hear today is about nagorno-karabakh. Tell me how did this episode. Come together in your mind. So i'm because we're we're we're pinned to a television network. It was one of the top stories on our tv channel On aljazeera english and our correspondent bernard smith is fantastic. You know he's been all over. The world reported all over the world and he had been posting updates on his social media accounts that had then been picked up on the outage english instagram accounts and looking at them. And they're fascinating him running from You know explosions and him. You know coming to us live from a bunker and all of it would make for really good sound and so we decided this is one. We definitely wanted to explain to people. Especially because your average person probably hasn't heard of nagorno harbach and so we wanted to lift the curtain on that story and explain what was actually happening and why it was important. We'll yeah you know what i really admire. But at this episode is the way it takes this very complicated issue which baffles most. Outsiders even outsiders like me. Frankly who are supposed to know about what's going on in the rest of the world because the history and geography are so complicated and it breaks it down so it makes sense. Is that an approach. You take a lot on the show. And how do you have a sort of philosophy of explaining or a process of explaining that you use Yeah way to look at it as a reporter's notebook so you know they'll do our reporters tv reporters for the most part. So they'll do their packages for television. They get what tops two minutes. Maybe three to tell the headlines of the story and for us on the take. It's really important to go behind those headlines. So i want the storytelling behind what we got to see. Come out in the report i want. How the reporter got there. What they were feeling who. They met the things that didn't end up in that tv package because of time. We have more time to kind of explain her audit our audience our listeners and so that allows for a more stare storytelling narrative to unfold. And i think that makes it really interesting for people because even if they do kind of know the story. This is the behind the scenes of that story. This is some of the nitty gritty details. That they wouldn't get otherwise and does the fact that you are a non. Us network gives you a different kind of access to places that you you wouldn't get if you were seen as american i think definitely We have the advantage of having bureaus all over the world. And so you know. We're based in. The united states are mothership for the entire channel is faced in the middle east and then bureaus are literally globe and so whenever there's something kind of bubbling in a region. We know that we have the ability to just call up our planning desk or call. Upper correspondent in that country. And just ask hey. Can you chat on the podcasts. And explain this for people and most times. They are more than willing to do that So that that isn't advantaged kind of having people all over the world. Well that's that's fascinating him and and thanks mainly with this. I think we should now here. The episode the show is the take. The.
Armenia asks Moscow for help amid Nagorno-Karabakh fighting
"Armenia has urged Russia to consider providing assistance to end the fighting over the Nagorno Karabakh the request came after more than a month of fighting in which as a by Johnny troops forged into the separatist territory Russia has a military base in Armenia and has signed a pact obliging to protect its ally but the request puts Russia in a precarious position joining the fighting may risk an open conflict with Turkey were refusing to offer protection to Armenia's ally would tend to Moscow's prestige Nagorno Karabakh lies within Azerbaijan that has been controlled by ethnic Armenian forces since the war ended that in nineteen ninety four I'm Sarah basses
Erdogan calls on Turks to boycott French products
"Talks president recipe type Erdogan has called for a boycott on French goods as tensions between the two countries rise after President Emmanuel macron called for a French Islam. This follows the beheading of teacher in France after he showed his class caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published by the Satirical magazine. Charlie. Ever. Let's cross to Istanbul to join the journalist I login Yuck. Leeann also on the line is Philip Malia professor of French and European politics at University College London. Island let's start with you. Why is Turkey so upset? Well the magazine this week published a cover that depicts a caricature of president are due on and suggesting that he's a bit hypocritical about his religious beliefs. He's drinking a can of beer and he's lifting. The skirt of an Islamic garb. So that is Let us set off a firestorm among our close circle They're accusing them accusing the magazine of insulting and have actually sued the magazine for libel. It is a crime in Turkey publishable a punishable by up to four years in prison to insult the president. So that has been the latest twist. In this in the spat, but they've also putting a ban on French goods. That's correct that stems from President Macron's a recent pledges to. Ensure. That Islam does not affect the French way of life and French values describe that as a relaunch of the Crusades an attempt to Spread like cancer the Islamic phobia that already exists in Europe according to Don So there, but the dispute doesn't just start there between Turkey and France on they are at odds over a number of issues including the war in Libya and including the search for hydrocarbons in the eastern Mediterranean as well as the conflict in Nagorno-karabakh. Absolutely, and we'll come back to those in a moment. I just want to bring Felipe here to talk about what my chronic said. I mean he's saying that he's been misquoted. Yes I think that that's what he says and to to be fair in this Ongoing Saga Domestic Saga in France that is around the shaggy bill cartoons the latest of course, the latest terrorist attacked a couple of weeks ago. This teacher who was beheaded in France by terrorists the the trial shall you do are all taking place as we speak, but there's a lot of things going on and to be fair my call has always been has has never been the hotline in this. In this debate about the cartoons is a bit more of a solo rather than. So in a sense, it's been unsound aim to be to be branded suddenly the most Islamophobic person in fraud I don't think used to be fair but the issues for sure it's been misquoted in a sense i. think he said, yes that they were issues with Islam. which probably was a rather undiplomatic way of putting things to wealth stage. I think he's presented essentially the new bill on socal separatism, which is quite controversial in France and probably. Is, yes implicitly targets in the Muslim population in France but it's true that if French I'll probably surprised how at ten suddenly the sued relationships and and how the sort of tension has related between the two countries of late. To. Be Fair that the two men have been at loggerheads for a long time so it seems on the train side. For advil hand, it's almost protects the those at the story of the call tunes because inside the being as your guests. Until you have just said, there's been real geopolitical issues and disputes between the two countries for one now. Yes. Well, I wonder how much of this also has to do with Turkey's domestic politics I mean we know that there's a huge economic crisis is this a diversionary tactic? It certainly helps distract people from the issues surrounding the economy and our one has been accused of using any number of foreign problems to distract his voters This in particular might resonate because the fact that it's religion and this is something that people hold. So close to their hearts on think that people are filing necessarily know every twist and turn. Of the issue. But when they hear of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine, they might recall the images of the Prophet that the magazine published previously and that. Sir. Association. So when are two one talks about insulting Islam that's what comes to mind. Not The fact that published an image of political leader on the cover and so if bob he does have an impact. You know anything to get people's minds off of the fact that the jobless rate is soaring. The currency in Turkey has lost about forty percent of value this year against the dollar There's real economic pain here. So the certainly can help can help change the debate now.
New deaths as fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh keeps flaring
"Fiddly fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces over the separatist region of Nagorno Karabakh who show no signs of abating a US brokered ceasefire has so far failed to hold the flare up of a decades old conflict according to Nagorno Karabakh officials what level one thousand of the troops a nearly forty civilians have been killed in the clashes so far as to by Johnny authorities say the fighting has killed on the one hundred civilians and wounded just over three hundred Russian president Vladimir Putin said last week the death toll from the fighting was nearing five thousand significantly higher the what both sides to pull the government run Armenian unified info center says as about Johnny forces have targeted a maternity hospital well as a by John officials reject the accusations I'm Charles then that's my
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" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"As about Johnson, United States 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. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. 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 of Ah River border between Iran and Azerbaijan. The part of Azerbaijan I believe isn't in Nagorno Cara back. This is 20% of Azerbaijan has been occupied by Armenian forces since the late 20th century. The video shows, however, a line of cars and cheering of Iranians and I I don't know if their military or not, They're in private vehicles cheering what is said to be Azerbaijan soldiers marching for a village across a river. What am I looking at, Professor Good evening to you. Good evening, John. It's actually a very exciting moment. That reminds me of events that took place in the at the time that the Soviet Iranian border in the December 1989 and January 1990. When literally Azerbaijanis from both sides were pulling down the border post burning the border border post and the foreign promoters of the foreign Press it Oh, this is Islam. They want Shia. They want Iran. Not getting if they would have listened to the language that people are speaking. They're not speaking. They're Persian. They're not talking to. You know, they're not praying. They're not crazy. You know that. They're actually speaking in the Azerbaijani language and the ones on the Iranian side are speaking Azerbaijani language. I heard I heard last night, you know, shouting. Ah, uh, heroic soldiers don't fear we love you, You know and dissing the soldiers get really elated after Weeks of fighting and you know the stress. And so it's a really even Iranian, either by Johnny's. We thought people in tears because after really that, they they're on a mountaintop and taken at the border, and they can see that they can see the fighting taking place. And then I mean, you know what they consider? What is that River Professor? What's the name of that river that so that's a rock River, which I know not because I'm good at geography, but because I like poetry, and there's so many poems about the separated nation, the Rock River being the separation between The Azerbaijanis of the Republicans, other by John and the Azerbaijanis in what some in poetry called South Azerbaijan, which is the northern part of Iran, and Ah Ah 30, About a third of the population of Iran is ethnic Azerbaijani..

Kara back, here's a territory that is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but populated and governed by ethnic Armenians.

Azerbaijan, Armenia Trade Accusations Of Breaking Cease-Fire In Nagorno-Karabakh
"And Azerbaijan fighting over alleged truce violations.

In turn, Armenian officials said Azerbaijan was trying to seize Nagorno Kara Bach. Despite the ceasefire. This
Armenia, Azerbaijan report attacks despite cease-fire deal
"Now to the disputed enclave of Nagorno Cara back. It is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but is controlled by ethnic Armenians. Has been renewed fighting in and around Nagano, Cara back, which has shattered a ceasefire brokered by Russia on Saturday between Armenia and Azerbaijan. They are former Soviet states, of course, and both have good relations with Russia. Indeed, it's thought the Russia supplies arms to both countries. But Azerbaijan is being overtly supported by Turkey, and the prospect of a more dangerous conflict is of concern. All parties. The Armenian foreign minister is in Moscow for talks with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. But happily, we can now speak to the Armenian Foreign Minister Zurab Mozza Canyon is on the line from Moscow. Welcome to the program What was decided at your talks with Sergei Lavrov today. Thank you very much. Look, I am in Moscow on a pre planned visit Ah for talks with our Russian colleagues on many issues of our bilateral agenda. But of course it is overwhelmed by one particular question. One big crisis that we have before us this escalation in Nagorno Carrabba this outright aggression against our people. Our competitor, It's in Nagorno Karabakh. We have achieved a very important Ah statement. Tio established this far now to de escalate the first step to do that, for humanitarian purposes and further to Ah, you know, to consolidate the cease fire so that we go back to normal, peaceful. Resolution of the process. But there was a cease fire declared on Saturday and it looks as though it is deeply fragile. Now it remains very fragile and it remains very concerning to us because what we have been observing is this overwhelming continuation off the attacks and the attacks on the cut above settlements and positions. Defense positions on DH. We are few hopeful that we can bring this back to normal. You know, to what? We have agreed to the cease fire so that we can resume normal work. First of all, we have to do some very important humanitarian action. Azaz. We have agreed as we agreed on. Okay, let me ask you about Let me ask you about the breaking of the cease fire. Officials on the Azeri side say that seven people were killed and dozens injured when an Armenian missile strike hit a residential block in ganja. Is that true? Well, look, the the Nagorno kind of our forces have denied that And then they're going to cut about forces have been saying that. Yes, but I'm asking you as the Armenian Goran Minister. The Army and foreign minister is saying that the Nagorno cut about defense forces are are doing everything to defend themselves because since Saturday and this is what I am absolutely outraged about that, Since Saturday morning, there's have been continuingly continuously attacking the settlements and the defense positions. The step on a gift and other other settlements have been in the continuous attack all the way until very late night off Saturday evening. And continuing into Sunday morning and feel we have this thing this fragility on the ground. The you know Stepanek cared is, you know totally totally brought to a very difficult situation. So many distractions. So many, you know, casualties. So many people who are displaced, the other, the infrastructure, the energy supply and everything is brought to such a condition. That people are in a very difficult situation, saying, Please let me ask you about the status of Nagorno Cara back. It is the self declared government off this en clave last week asked for it to be recognized internationally. Does Armenia back that? Well, of course, Armenia backs everything that's supposed existentially physical security off our competitor. It's in Nagano Carrabba who have been very careful and very patient No to undermine the peaceful settlement. But what we have been observing over these past two weeks is the choice off the military option for the resolution, the choice off imposing solutions by military aggression but from other why don't why don't you? Why don't you either annexed the territory or recognize its independence? Those are the options that are Open to you exactly that we have to be responsible. We do not want to, you know, deny chance for the peaceful resolution. But if you're prime minister says that Cara back is Armenia. It's quite clear. You don't want to recognize its independent. Don't take it out of context. The prime minister ofthe Army has been very consistent about about the compromise solution that there is no other way but to it, you know? Compromise solution that is acceptable to the people of media people off not gonna care about and people off as a bridge that it can be only there can only be a compromise. When this statement from the prime minister is taken out of context. You have what you have because the prime minister was saying that Armenia Is investing a lot of effort in its own reform in its own development, and it cannot be indifferent to his competitor. It's in Nagorno Carrabba.

You're listening to weekend from the BBC World Service with me, Celia Hatton and with us for the rest of the program until 7 30 GMT are our guests. Natalie Touchy. She's the director of the Institute for International Affairs in Rome, and she's also a special advisor to you, High representative and vice president of the commission Jos Burrell. And Henry Chu. He's the deputy news editor for the Los Angeles Times, based in London. Every I'm interested to hear more about your position with the times but working from London. How does that work for you? So I had been the London slash Europe bureau chief for the Times as a correspondent before I left them. In 2015. But I'm back now in a different position in an editing position and also overseeing the website during what are the nighttime hours in Ella, and I'm not actually going out and doing any coverage anymore. But what it lets me do, actually, as to release my inner dilettante. You know, when I was a correspondent, I had to specialize in the geographical beat that I was covering whether that was Europe. Or China before that, or Brazil now in this position, getting to sort of sit on top of everything. I can watch news coming in from all over the world and from our correspondents based in other parts of the world and have a hand in that, so that's been really fascinating for me as well as just seeing in this digital age that I had talked about a little bit before. Where our readers are coming from Now, you know, we might be the Los Angeles Times. But by no means is our readership restricted to L. A or Southern California now as a 24 hour news operation, and as a website We see that readers heir coming from us far away as Australia and certainly here in Europe as well, particularly English speakers, of course, But knowing that the Times has that kind of reach has been great to see indeed, and presumably, you can also see how often your readers click on one story or another. Does that impact your editorial decisions? No, not entirely. I mean, it might can impact. I think in terms of what it is that we might play higher on on the Web page versus lower and that is editorial decision, certainly, But in terms of what we think are really important stories to follow, for example, what's happening in Nagorno Karabakh not entirely at all, because that also has to do with the fact that L. A is home to the largest Armenian population in America. And so that's a story. That's of particular importance to us locally, and so we have a reporter there Right now we're going to be speaking about pandemic fatigue a little bit later on, I wonder. Are your readers still consistently interested in reading stories about the pandemic? Or do they tend to get tired of it? I think the readership of Corona virus story is obviously the beginning. That pandemic was through the roof, our digital subscriptions. Skyrocketed, and people wanted as much information as they could about that, and it was all pandemic all the time. And then I had mentioned before we have the racial injustice protest and it became that became the consuming story, and I think people's attention shifted. Now that we're back to the pandemic, I think the interest is a little less people know what to expect in many ways. Andi, we have a presidential election before us, and so I think, just in terms of people's attention spans. Dispersing a little bit. I think we are seeing that. Okay. Natalie. Natalie told you that's let's turn over to you. I'm excited to ask you about a book that you're working on about your kung fu teacher. Tell us more. Well, I mean, you know, this was the project that started for now over a year ago on dit was because, you know, I kind of went to a difficult personal moment. And you know, I've always loved writing. But at that point in time, I really didn't feel like writing about international relations have been doing comport for, you know, almost 20 years Now on my master, he's called Paolo Cangelosi. As I knew he had always had a sort of pretty incredible life. But you know, it was kind of anecdotes here and there, so I proposed it to him. And he he actually agreed to tell me his Story That's basically a story about you know, an eight year old boy in Genoa, Italy, at the by Chance meets a Chinese carpenter who, actually a campus. It was not at all. He was a master had had to flee from China during the cultural Revolution, but also because he had got entangled with the Chinese Mafia. Ended up in general precise because there was not a Chinese community. There's a lot to see. That was a sort of relatively safe place for him to be. So this relationship between a sort of a year old boy on DH, you know, didn't speak all this. You want Chinese and the Chinese master that didn't speak. A word of Italian was kind of cactus, a secret relationship for almost 10 years, after which the Chinese master disappears back to China on after three years, my master Cangelosi manages to find him and so kind of you. End up in this new phase of the book, which is a sort of Chinese phase, which kind of takes takes you from, you know the sort of heights of enlightenment in meditating in the forests of monkey with a hermit monk that had done a vow of silence down into the sort of debts of darkness of underground illegal fighting in Hong Kong and Bandung. There's really a kind of story, which is obviously an adventure. It's ISA Story of personal development and is also an extent a psycho drama. But it is it is. Ah, biography. I mean, it's It's It's all really s O. I'm super excited and for me has been a wonderful way of actually writing, but in a very different way from our and used to fighting normally. Absolutely unless, he said. It sounds like a very dramatic tale. We'll have to have you back on the program when the book is out and just to hear more about it.

So stepping back is not an option for the government at this stage unless they've reached a very different agreement that what they had before some solution, some advancement for Azerbaijan otherwise the whole point of starting all of this would be completely lost. As a final thought then paid if theories to be a yet significant military conflict and even if it precedes. Or less according to Azerbaijan's John's plans. Is there any imaginable way though that whatever is about to happen is actually going to end up resolving anything when nagorno-karabakh is concerned or is this just going to be one of those things that the world keeps having to come back to time and again I don't think there Is. Any imaginable settled solution in the near future no matter what happens this is going to have massive or abbreviations in both Armenia and deserve by John both politically, and amongst the public's of these countries, the question is not can the conflict be solved?

"I don't think so I mean while I think after the velvet revolution, there was a thaw in relations which I mean looking back to it. Now, it seems like a completely different world when you know the foreign ministers of armenian-azerbaijani made a statement where they said we're going to prepare populations for peace. So there seemed to be a thon bettering relations immediately after the Velvet Revolution. But. After Nicole, Palestinians visits to Okada and when he made that statement nagorno-karabakh is Armenia full stop I mean he's basically taken the same line as the previous. Armenian. Authorities had and so I don't think there's any evidence to see that his position is different from that of his predecessors. So you don't think that might be part of the calculation that Turkey has made as well because again, that seems to be a distinguishing note of this. Particular flare up the Turkey has taken a much more overt interest in nagorno-karabakh than it usually does yeah I mean Turkey up until now with on the side of the Esscalation and they've been sort of advocating for that ever since. But the fact that Turkey is fully involved in this conflict, I mean not militarily. But at least in terms of moral support as they describe it, these days is definitely changing the playing field. I do not really. Consider the possibility of Turkey getting involved militarily in this conflict. But I certainly do think that Turkish current involvement in the conflict also has to do with. With Russia whether we're talking about the conflict in Syria we're talking about the conflict in Libya sort of Turkey. Trying to also take a stronger position in the region and finding Azerbaijan as this ally where they have these long term relationship, they are calling each other brother countries, brother nations anything that really adds to the agenda of this conflict. You know I feel like what's happening here in Turkey as miscalculated approach to this conflict because Azerbaijan and Armenia Nagorno carbohydrates is not the same as what's going on in Syria or Libya and Turkey just wanting to show how strong it is or how important it is in the region..

"Part of Azerbaijan and its independence its liberation was very much on the agenda I. Mean Obviously, the context is very sensitive because the language around the conflict is also various sort of heated and often we've seen how politicians in Azerbaijan, have used this conflict to make political advances for their own status quo. But again, given that context people always considered Katembo hasn't issue and now seeing these escalations it's not surprising to see why there's so much enthusiasm and euphoria around these last five days of escalated tensions. Previous bring your experience at the same is true of the Armenian public by regard this very much as a crucial portent and very much unresolved issue. Absolutely. It's of the utmost importance to the Armenian public. The Armenian public sees nagorno-karabakh Fundamentally Armenian land. and. It's an almost existential question for Armenia a lot of the narratives around what's happening with nagorno-karabakh hearken back to the genocide of Nineteen fifteen where basically the fate of the Armenians in-cutter Buck is tied to the fate of all Armenians, and in this conflict has been particularly acute because of the participation of Turkey and just to follow up. because. What I want to ask you both is an understanding of what I decide here. Sees as any kind of victory. That's what really written remains unclear where I side think they really going with this PD as Armenian. What should its relationship to Nagorno-karabakh be I? Mean? That's a difficult question. There are some people who think it should be formerly made a part of Armenia others believe that the independence of Nago Carbo should be recognized. The defacto reality is now Gordon. Okada. Is basically you can't imagine a closer relationship tore menial. You can't say that it is really a part of Armenia because it does have its own political dynamics, but it is incredibly close and of course, right now in Colorado you have Armenian forces fighting. So I think the political questions of independence or absorption into. Armenia are sort of secondary to the actual reality on the ground right now. Which is an outgrowth of the Republic of Armenia, at this point politically and materially and does Azerbaijan released is a John's government look at nagorno-karabakh and imagine there actually is a military solution to this. Could they possibly be even considering evicting the entire ethnic-armenian population? Yesterday president in homily spoke during a visit to a military clinic where he was visiting wounded soldiers and he said that the only condition upon which he will end the conflict is if the seven ingestion territory soon, nagorno-karabakh are returned back to Azerbaijan and if the status of nagorno-karabakh is given to Azerbaijan so basically, his demand is that Armenia withdraws its claims over nagorno-karabakh territory but I must priority is return of the seven Jason Territories to nagorno-karabakh which are not part of Nagorno Kaba. So I. think that's really important statement that came from the president and it's been repeated now, pretty much ever since the Sunday tensions began by the president. So he's very clear on that and it's also very interesting to see how this whole conversation around independence of Nagorno Karabakh discussed because if I'm not mistaken, Armenia has not recognised the independence of going to cut it off. And it was one sort of statement that came from the government of Armenian, during these past few days was that if Azerbaijan continues the military invasion that Armenia will recognize the independence of Nagorno. Karabakh. So I think these are very important elements and facts to keep in mind to how big an escalation might that be were mania to do that I mean. Obviously, it would be very unlikely that any other country on earth would follow suit. So at best nagorno-karabakh could be become an equivalent perhaps to the..

Is it clear what they want from this what their idea victory would be? I mean Armenians. One self determination of ethnic Armenians living in nagorno-karabakh. And the idea is to go back to the negotiations and push harder to reach the self-determination of the Armenians living in nagorno-karabakh. This is, as he said, a much bigger deal than previous flare ups over nagorno-karabakh in there are several other external complicating factors, the potential involvement of other countries not the least of these is Turkey given the obvious history between Turkey and mania. How much is that aggravating tensions? I think it is aggravating greatly I mean defensive official Yerevan is that. Turkey wants to return to South Caucasus like you know are complicated history but the Armenian genocide prime minister new quote `pushing Yawns announced that Turkey's involvement means that Armenia is the last remaining obstacle underway of continued Turkish expansion towards the North End. It's basically the realization of their imperial dream of pan-turkism. So this makes things harder more difficult. So has there been than from the government or from Armenia in media suggestion of how people expect the coming days and weeks to play out whether they will be extensions of the provisions already introduced under martial law whether they're expecting an escalation in the fighting with us John What does the government appear to be preparing Armenia four? They constantly say that they want to stop the military actions and to return to the negotiations but Azerbaijan's sense does not allow that because right now the military actions are continuing it is not possible to negotiate. So that's why the people should be prepared for longer I. Guess. So to go back to nagorno-karabakh itself, you have reporters covering the war there. What are they hearing from the people actually in nagorno-karabakh? How is this already changing their lives and and what kind of provisions of people going to have to make obviously when there was a big war over nagorno-karabakh nearly ninety s we saw tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of people being displaced is they're concerned that people might just have to pack up and leave.

Intense fighting has erupted nagorno-karabakh a small enclave in the southern Caucasus mountains setting the entire region on edge. This is a fight primarily between Armenia and Azerbaijan two former Soviet republics with long-held grievances over land. The volve of Russia Turkey and others raises the stakes for where a war might be headed. An essence, this is a story of a powerful. Changing history by drawing arbitrary lines on a map that would later spark conflict. The states of Armenia and Azerbaijan were pulled into Moscow or and became part of the Soviet Union in the nineteen twenties though nagorno-karabakh, a mountain region about the size of Delaware was dominated by Armenians. Matt makers made it part of the Jani Soviet republic for decades are Mian complaints about the region's status were ignored and in the final days of the USSR war erupted tens of thousands were killed and more than one million were forced from their homes. A Russian brokered system in nineteen, ninety, four left nagorno-karabakh as part of Azerbaijan but ethnic Armenians with backing from the Armenian government drove most Azerbaijanis from the territory and declared it an independent republic. Low level fighting has continued over the years and an eruption of violence in two thousand, sixteen killed at least two hundred people. There is no peace treaty and nothing has been resolved. In recent years, the governments of Armenia and Azerbaijan have sent positive signals. Her budget president and Armenia's prime minister opened the first ever military hotline between the two countries and twenty eighteen and talks brokered by Russia France and the United States. Produced a joint statement and Twenty nineteen that appeared to set the stage for a treaty. But momentum was lost and an eruption of fighting this summer led to popular demand in both countries for a military reckoning.
