The Armenian political institution has misplaced its bearings, or
it will be advisable to say that it has by no means had it, be it throughout
the temporary stint after the collapse of tsarist Russia or quickly after
the Soviet empire demised, and political specialists ascribe it to the
lack of statehood expertise.
The absence of historic roots within the development of its
statehood and 100 years of being on political and financial
subsidies from Russia didn’t enable Armenia to construct its
established state and the important thing and secondary actors within the political
area have all the time been utilized by their patrons for their very own
“Right now in Armenia, some are in opposition to Russia, others are in opposition to
the West, some are in opposition to eliminating the age-old enmity with
the Turks, others are for the continuation of this enmity…”
political skilled Kamran Rustamov instructed
Armenia’s unstable political state permits the usage of Armenians
on this or that political recreation and the present development signifies that
Armenia is regularly shifting away from Russia.
Some imagine that that is the one right path geared toward
rapprochement with the West, others imagine that within the absence of
a dependable system that can take Armenia beneath the wing of the
West, separation from Russia can result in unpredictable, and a few
take into account fairly predictable outcomes.
Persevering with to fiddle across the Armenian-Azerbaijani border,
which the Armenians themselves have by no means formally introduced on
what maps, the place and the way it passes, Armenians enable others to make use of
the “border map” as a instrument within the fingers of varied political
forces. Why do individuals in Armenia suppose that if you happen to can’t clear up
your home your self, another person will do it for you? Subsequently,
Armenia is torn between North and South, West and East.
Remembering that when Armenians “constructed” that previous Egypt,
furthermore, they “dominated” it, voices usually started to be heard in
Armenia about the necessity to set up allied relations with Egypt
in opposition to Turkey.
With the help of Egypt, Armenia can counteract the
Azerbaijani-Turkish propaganda within the Arab world, even within the
context of Islamic solidarity. Gor Gevorkyan, a former member of
the Armenian parliament, Ph.D. in Historical past, and affiliate professor,
expressed this opinion in an interview with Sputnik Armenia,
commenting on the go to of Armenian Overseas Minister Ararat
Mirzoyan to Egypt and participation within the ministerial assembly of
the Council of the League of Arab States, pundit Kamran Rustamov
“It’s essential to take note of Egypt’s relations with
Western nations, Russia, and its presence on the African
continent normally. The political weight and authority of Egypt
within the Arab world are so nice that this nation might be thought-about
as an middleman, with the assistance of which within the Arab world, we
can counteract the Azerbaijani-Turkish propaganda,” Gevorkyan
For this objective, he proposes to make use of the rising cool relations
between Egypt and Turkey.
“Just lately, Turkey has been very actively probing the chance
of restoring relations with Egypt. You realize that after 2013,
Turkiye-Egyptian relations escalated when Abdul Fattah al-Sisi got here
to energy. Turkey accused the Egyptian authorities of numerous
points and, actually, froze relations that had been actively growing
beneath the earlier president,” Gevorgyan added.
On this regard, the specialist advises the Armenian authorities
to be guided primarily by state pursuits in relations with Arab
nations and to boost contacts with Egypt to a better political
Relying on the political orientation of the state, some
nations are attempting to wedge themselves into relations between
nations with a purpose to convey them nearer, whereas others are attempting to
separate them on reverse sides of the barricades.
Right now, when optimistic processes are seen within the South
Caucasus, once more, each from inside Armenia and from exterior, there
is an try and counter these processes.
They nonetheless can not perceive in Armenia that immediately’s realities
dictate that solely the constructing of peaceable, good-neighborly
relations and the renunciation of territorial claims within the area
is the one method to protect and develop the Armenian statehood. All
different roads are resulting in the disaster.
Armenia, constructed on historic Azerbaijani lands, has a neighbor –
Azerbaijan, which has greater than 3,000 years of historical past of its
statehood. It’s this genetics that makes it doable immediately to
construct an affordable, well-considered coverage each inside the nation
and on the world stage.
