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. And in this context, Armenia will be supporting as the only guarantor of their security will be supporting our compatriots in the corner just hasn't told us how contacts off the context of the conflict. He was talking strictly directly and consistently about the company. How confident are you that this ceasefire such as it is currently is going to hold in anyway? Look, I think that this has been also part of our conversation. A very good deal very good part of our conversation here in Moscow, and we will continue. Also talking with the cultures of the always means group. France and the United States were part of this. Mediation efforts. Russia is doing a great job. France and the United States are working together now we shouldn't deny any chance for these ceasefire to hold. We have to go carry on with the verification mechanism which helps us to bring back ceasefire to bring back peace so that we go back to the peaceful settlement. We're not hoping we're not losing hope will continue working very hard on this. Thank you for speaking to us about it. Today. Armenia's foreign ministers, Arab man, That's a canyon joining us live from Moscow.
Armenia, Azerbaijan accuse each other of violating ceasefire
"Fragile ceasefire has gone into effect in Nagorno Karabakh region disputed by the former Soviet Republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia. NPR's Lucy and Kim reports from Moscow that both sides already accusing each other of violating the cease fire. Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated talks in Moscow between the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan. After more than 10 hours of negotiations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov appeared before reporters questions over the opponent. He announced a cease fire to allow the warring parties to collect the bodies of soldiers and exchange prisoners. Lavrov said more substantive talks under the auspices of Russia, the U. S and France would follow. Fierce fighting broke out in the garden car back, which saw bloody war in the early 19 nineties that left ethnic Armenians in charge of the region. Azerbaijan is now vowing to take it back. Lucien Kim. NPR News. Moscow Sir by Johns for a minister said today that the cease fire would only last for as long as it takes the Red Cross to arrange for the exchange of the debt.
Armenia, Azerbaijan agree on cease-fire
"Over 10 hours of talks and then a breakthrough. The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced that Azerbaijan and Armenia had agreed to a ceasefire in the ongoing conflict over the disputed region of Nagorno Carol Bock. After lengthy negotiations between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. The parties have agreed on the following steps first a ceasefire is announced to be declared from midday on October 10th 2020 for humanitarian purposes. The exchange of prisoners of war on other contained persons on the bodies of the dead, mediated and in accordance with the criteria of the International Committee of the Red Cross. Talks between the foreign ministers of the two countries in Moscow. REMEDIATED by Mr Lavrov more than 300 people have died and thousands have been displaced since the latest violence broke out nearly two weeks ago. You gonna carry back lies with another by John, but it's inhabited mainly by ethnic Armenians. Ostrovsky is a senior fellow in the Russia and Eurasia program at the foreign policy think tank, The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D. C. I think this is a cease fire is important. It is not necessarily a game changer. But we've seen some of the worst fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the last almost 30 years over the last two weeks on DH, the fighting has been really kind of brutal on both sides with large civilian casualties, any sort of small ceasefire, humanitarian ceasefire. Er that will pause. The conflict allowed people to pick up the dead and I think it's important, but there still is a long way to go to resolve this conflict. And I would say that it no. It took almost half a day to get the sides to agree to this and the sentiment in both Armenian Azerbaijan has really hardened, so this is very much probably a temporary cease as opposed to a really long term solution. You describe the the fighting in the past two weeks as brutal? How does it differ from from fighting that we've seen before between the two sides? We've seen, you know the use of drones, the use of really sort of much more modern equipment and the targeting of civilian populations on both sides. Eso we've seen, you know, I think at least 300. The casualties have been reported on the Armenian side. The Azerbaijani side hasn't been as clear on the numbers, but I expect it's equally as high and in just two weeks of fighting. That's a fairly high high number. But I think that the brutality against the civilian populations but has been deeply worrying. Mr Lavrov also said that Azerbaijan and Armenia had agreed to start talks on the settlement of the conflict. Will they be able to agree to a more permanent solution? I would hope At some point they will be able to agree, but they've been in talks to do that. Since 1994 the populations have sort of viewed this latest round of fighting a sort of existential fight for their nation's on DSO. I think that will make it quite difficult to get a Ah long term solution any time soon. Until you sort of check. Try to change those mindsets, which I think is gonna be quite difficult. Particularly if either one of these leaders is perceived as being a little bit weak on this Nagorno car back issue. I think this is an enormous potential implications for sort of domestic stability in both countries, and what role does Russia play In all of this? What pressures was Russia able to bring to bear on Azerbaijan and Armenia? Russia is normally able to summon its neighbors on get them to stop fighting. It wants to do that, but I think Russia had much more difficulty in this. I think Russian Azerbaijani relations have deteriorated a little bit and turkeys insertion on behalf of Azerbaijan certainly made this more complicated. Is a fighting certainly, and brutality and sort of the greater international awareness on DH. The pressure, not just from Russia but from the West is well that has increased over the last several days. I think that certainly did increase the pressure on both sides. Paul Stransky. Let's hear more from our guests to get their thoughts on these developments. Henry Chiu, professor Stransky doesn't sound optimistic about the prospects for long term peace. Do you share his skepticism? Well, I think if you look at the comments from the leaders of both Azerbaijan and Armenia there fairly adamant about the territory being belonging to their respective countries, and it doesn't look like there. Other side is really willing to give an inch on that. And unfortunately for you gonna carry a box, you know what happens with a lot of these small territories is that they become palms for larger conflicts or larger face offs. And so the professor talked about Russia and Turkey well these air to powers that are also having confrontations in Syria and also In Libya. So unfortunately, this area, which is a resource rich area, it's a strategic corridor is also going to be playing out in an arena that's larger than just itself. Actually, What do you
Armenia and Azerbaijan agree to cease-fire after weeks of conflict
"And Azerbaijan have agreed to a humanitarian ceasefire after two weeks of intense fighting over the disputed territory of Nagorno Cara back. The deal was announced by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, after 10 hours of talks in Moscow. He is James Reed, Sergei Lavrov said the cease fire would begin at midday on Saturday. It would allow for the exchange of prisoners and the recovery of dead bodies. Mr Lavrov said. Armenia and Azerbaijan had also agreed to begin substantive negotiations to resolve the conflict that has divided them since independence from the Soviet Union. Settling the status of Nagorno Cara back will not be easy. Azerbaijan is determined to recover the territory it lost three decades ago, and with Turkish support, it has been gaining ground in the fighting. Armenia says it cannot abandon the Armenian population to face expulsion from their historic homeland.

"Equally. Intriguing. When looking over the list of acts are artists who finished in the same place multiple times. El and roaming power each rubber Italy twice in each place seven every time they did sell. Hana Croak the other half of bobby socks sandwich her win as part of the group with two appearances in seventeenth place. Once, a Solo Act in nineteen seventy one. And once, as part of Norway's just for fun in Nineteen ninety-one I love that. and Sergei Lavrov might have something to scream about if he represents Russia in places. Third Third Time. And of course, it all goes back Johnny Logan. Who placed first each time he performed. CIN nother. So. What's another year when it comes to the Vision Song contest for performers who've already appeared on that stage? With all these examples, the data seems to point out that going back for another year, of Eurovision competition is likely not going to be in your favor. especially if you're coming in the winter. Crunching the numbers twelve re appearances have ended in a win. Seventy four performers did better than their first performance. Twenty performer did the same. At one hundred, fifty did worse. Digging further into the trajectories performance. Took a returning winner dropping nine point seven positions on average. Even performers with an initial top five placement dropped average of nine places on returning to the contest. Overall. An Act that came back regardless of its initial placement dropped three places on average. Looking across the decades thirty-five percent be axed returned. Since two thousand ten has seen an increase placement in their most recent appearance. That's the highest rate of improvement since the seventies, but it's also the lowest amount of returning acts with only seventeen performers are group's making multiple appearances at the contest. So, what have we learned? Returning to the contest again, an either winning or even doing better than your first performance seems like a risky proposition at best. There's only one Johnny Logan for a reason. But it can be done successfully.

EU leaders seek to ramp up pressure on Belarus president
"In Belarus? The pressure is growing on the country's authoritarian leader, Alexander Lukashenko to step down after nearly three decades in power protesters. Say the recent presidential election he won was rigged. Neighboring countries are watching this very closely. The European Union held an emergency session today. NPR's Lucien Kim is in Moscow in another country watching this especially closely. Hi, Lucien. Morning, so President Lukashenko says he's now mobilized the army on the country's western borders. I mean, we've seen massive protests. We've seen the crackdown. Is this even more escalation in all this? Well, I mean, he's escalating the situation. President Lukashenko is because he's refusing to talk with the opposition. He's basically said over my dead body. The opposition has formed what they're calling a coordination council to facilitate dialogue. But Lukashenko says this is just a front and he's already threatened to deal with members of this council. Appropriately. Today, he ordered his internal security officials to bring calm back to the country. And he's also playing up this idea of a foreign threat What you were asking about since Belarus borders three NATO member states. This, of course, could be one way for him to draw in his only ally. Which is Russia, Huh? Ok, So you say that obviously there there three European countries on the border here. European leaders held this meeting today T sort of address this whole tense situation. What action is coming from that? The EU leaders decided not to recognize the results of the August 9th presidential election, and they also said they would sanction Belarussian officials who are responsible for vote rigging, but also the violent repression of demonstrators. Charlie Michelle, who is the head of the European Council, said the yew stands in solidarity with the people of Belarus and their right to elect their own leaders, he said this is not about geopolitics, and that seems like a direct response to the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, who earlier said Europeans were playing geopolitics. I think it is important to mention here that Bela Rose, Belarus inhabits this. Kind of gray zone between the European Union and Russia and has never really expressed any interest in joining the European Union. Well, I mean, we saw another country sort of caught in the Middle Ukraine and how Russia addressed that after there was political political protest there, talk about what the Kremlin is doing reacting as they figure out what to do with Belarus on on its on its border. Well. Belarus and Russia have very close political, economic and military two ties. And a Russian President Vladimir Putin. Very much views Belarus as being in his sphere of influence. So far, he's been keeping his cards very close to his chest. But today his spokesman finally broke the Kremlin silence on Belarus. He said international pressure on Lukashenko's unacceptable but he also said an interesting thing, he said Russia does not see the need to send troops into Belarus. That's something that Lukashenko had hinted at over the weekend. And what about what about the United States? Or are we seeing any reaction from from the US at this point? Well, the U. S has been pretty absent in Thiss whole discussion. Even though Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was traveling in Europe last week. He did say the US is working with European partners on some kind of response. And it does look like the Trump administration is letting the European Union take the lead here. All right. NPR's Moscow correspondent. Lucien Kim, Lucien, Thanks so much.

Top election security official details past, current and future threats
"Will the twenty twenty elections be secure from interference either foreign or domestic yesterday I asked you shall be Pearson she is the first ever intelligence community election threats executive she was appointed by then director of national intelligence Dan coats in July of two thousand and nineteen her job is to work with intelligence agencies like the CIA the FBI the NSA and the department of homeland security to identify and fight actors that are trying to interfere with our voting process the Russians for example are already engaging in influence operations relative to candidates going into twenty twenty but we do not have evidence at this time that our adversaries are directly looking at interfering with vote counts or the vote tallies is it fair to say we don't know what Russia is going to do yet I think that is a fair characterization and I would also say that this is in a rush only problem were still also concerned about China a Ron non state actors hacktivist and frankly I've certainly for DHS an FBI even Americans that might be looking to undermine confidence in the elections after Russia interfered in the twenty sixteen election there was this push for transparency about attempts to influence our elections Pearson told me she's walking the line between not wanting to frighten people but also wanting to keep them informed transparency enables resilience and sunlight is the best disinfectant so the more that we talk about the threat potentially more we empower voters to understand this as merely a reality of today's landscape and that despite all of those challenges were managing them or countering them and they should vote you are constantly doing the calculus on this you are constantly trying to figure out is it worth saying it now is it worth waiting and seeing how much of a threat it is absolutely would you say that's a daily occurrence the challenge for us is that for anyone who has any tenure in the intelligence community we're in the business of rats so we're we're seeing information day in and day out and I think the challenges to your point windows that mature enough to the point where it's either actionable where the target can take meaningful counter measures so that it is stopped in its tracks so to speak all the way to are we gonna reveal this because it'll help raise awareness and sensitize people this sounds like a very difficult balancing act the US intelligence community agrees that Russia interfered in the twenty sixteen election to benefit president trump and hurt Hillary Clinton president trump has openly joked about Russia interfering the twenty sixteen election in fact he appeared to joke with Vladimir Putin about it at times he doesn't appear to take this threat seriously that has to make your job harder we are looking at the spectrum of information that comes into us day in and day out to enable all the missions and that can continue frankly unencumbered by any of the comments or political discourse that you hear globally about this topic I will say that the intelligence community has the authorities it needs it has the resources it needs and when we have needed the president to relate warnings for example most recently to Mr Lavrov in Russia he has done so Sergei Lavrov we have to just explain what you mean short I think the interagency process not just the intelligence community has strongly encouraged leaders whether that includes president trump or secretary state pump hail or secretary defense Mister asper to relay information to our international colleagues that interfering in the US elections is unacceptable to United States and that type of messaging is very important in terms of ensuring the global cognizance that this is an activity that will not be tolerated in any way shape or form you don't feel yourself having to work around president trump not at all here are some things that we're learning now last week a private American company area one security reported that it he discovered that Russia had successfully compromised Ukrainian energy conglomerate which includes Burris mother company at the center of the impeachment this is a private company saying it detected interference in Ukraine which could indicate interference in the U. S. selection the method by which Russia interfered with this conglomerate with the same thing that they did in two thousand sixteen to us why was it not the US government that told us about what happened about Russia hacking charisma I think this is a really important point because frankly there is a whole consortium of players in this landscape which include private security firms and in fact not just international infrastructure organizations like Beres mine but frankly even some of our state and local elections their cyber security comes from private security firms so those organizations will actually have deeper and technical insight into those networks before the intelligence community well these private companies do they share information with the US intelligence community well I think many of these firms particularly larger ones will sell reports based upon the information that they have access to and some of that's very important to complement the holdings that we have in the intelligence community are you saying those private security companies are also selling intelligence to the United States government yes they can sell their services and some of the most common of firms FireEye and crowds strike and in fact I think those two firms for example have done really good work we're based upon the analysis and expertise and information analysis that they do resident within those firms those are products and services that they can sell to the US government I am surprised to hear that private companies are selling information to the US intelligence community information that the US intelligence community itself does not have am I being naive well it's not necessarily a knife Hey I think it really needs to be an open discussion about why is the landscape the way it is and frankly I think many Americans might have concerns about the US federal government Big Brother having technical access to a full spectrum of networks I think they're really needs to be an open debate about that before people presume that the intelligence community should have a presence on everyone's at work do you see that debate happening I think it's one that's burgeoning certainly because I sometimes no well I feel that the intelligence community is held accountable for a lot of information that it's not necessarily doesn't have access to or isn't part of its mission improve you we know that Americans are spreading misinformation sometimes they're doing it deliberately sometimes they're not at all doing it deliberately it can be a post on social media that we don't know is fake is that a bigger threat to the election then foreign interference well I think there's two aspects of that you know let's be very clear that of course the federal government encourages and once as broad and free speech as possible that is a principle of our country and it's probably one of the most valuable cornerstones of our society so we want people to engage in public exchange political exchange and to have that freedom unfettered from foreign interference but at the same time I think we also want to make sure that if we or the firms involved are aware that this information is foreign sponsored and is covert in terms of its sponsorship to the user we want to do everything we can to manage that information you say that the American public needs to be cognizant that misinformation is out there we also know that Americans increasingly live in very partisan spaces that much of the media that they're looking at takes one position or another is there anything at all that you can do to deal with the fact that more than ever we are bifurcated nation we are people who believe different things I would ask that all press outlets be introspective about their role frankly in civil society in terms of journalistic ethics and where they fit in to providing nonpartisan information factually based information and I think that's part of this issue that the intelligence community doesn't necessarily have a direct role in this but I think we're trying to raise cognizance an awareness across all of these constituencies that we all frankly have a role in a variety of capacities encountering this right what about the president of the United States being false or misleading statements well I think the challenge is whether or not that's being promulgated or deliberately fomented by a foreign intelligence service or foreign government and I think that's the type of information that if we have holdings within the intelligence community we're gonna certainly look to share that information as broadly as needed to stop it sounds like what you're saying is if the president says some and false other countries can use that to their advantage I think the challenge for us is not necessarily the accuracy of an individual statement but as I mentioned on this issue of whether or not an intelligence service a foreign government is using it for manipulative purposes particularly purposes that are covert here in the United States and that's where we we want to step in Shelly Pearson intelligence community election threats executive miss

But but tell us about his take on the potential of the president being some kind of Russian asset, well and his foreign policy hall that stupid and use it other colorful language now. Perhaps I've watched too many the all the president's men too many times. But one could argue that there are a lot of non denial denial that they were very sort of colorful language, but not specific. And now if I if one is in Russia's position, they have no reason to sort of make declarative Cal clarify statement that this sort of uncertainty and questions surround the Trump administration. Worked to their benefit. And I think you saw that they sort of fed into that was some of this language where they call. They used a lot of adjectives and names to sort of to say nothing of the was possible, but stopped short of offering any sort of declarative statements that would seek to bring more stability or take away something uncertainty around all these issues, Jennifer. Yeah, there's an old saying that don't believe anything until the Kremlin denies it. Which I think in this case is is really spot on, you know, Vladimir Putin himself in particular and his government lackeys for lack of a better word are very good at what I call implausible tonight ability where it's this sort of wink and a nod where they're kind of sort of. Oh, of course, you know, almost over the top. But we never do something. Like that. When you're like, of course, you absolutely could.

And if you wanna talk about something that Putin's Russia would really love to see the US breaking up NATO. I mean, that's like the best Christmas present ever for Putin. So, you know, whether or not Trump is accidentally or just by happenstance in line with Russia's kind of desires on NATO, or whether there's something more sinister as increasing evidence seems to lean toward we don't know at all yet.
