From the Armenian Parliament: South Caucasus is of no value to the United States

44
Armen Ashotyan, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Foreign Relations of Armenia, commented on the visit of the American delegation led by John Bolton to Yerevan. According to Ashotyan, it became clear (to whom?) From the rhetoric of the adviser to the American president on issues of national security that the South Caucasus for the United States not important.


From the Armenian Parliament: South Caucasus is of no value to the United States

Armenian Armed Forces soldier


Ashotyan:
The South Caucasus region is of little value to the United States. Washington and Moscow consider the region first of all from the point of view of its geographical proximity to Western Asia (Middle East) - to Iran and Syria.


The Armenian parliamentarian said that Russia and the United States are trying to consolidate their political capital in the South Caucasus, increasing their influence to realize their goals in the Middle East.

The statements that the South Caucasus is not of great importance for the United States, made by the Armenian deputy, make, perhaps, a shrug.

Bolton’s words that it’s time for Armenia to switch to American purchases weaponsThe US frank desire to “draw” the line of influence from the Georgian ports on the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea coast, the presence in Armenia of one of the largest US embassies among all countries of the world — all this indicates that the Caucasus is of strategic importance for Washington.

Transcaucasia Washington is seen as the key from two doors at once - from the Russian (from the south), and to the Iranian (from the north). Moreover, the USA will obviously try to reach the Caspian resources, which they have long had their eye on, and which de jure became inaccessible after the conclusion of agreements in the format of the historic Caspian summit, by increasing their influence in the Transcaucasus.

Statements that the South Caucasus as such is “not interesting for the United States” mostly pour water on the American mill.

      After the establishment of control of the Russian Federation over the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range, interest naturally decreased sharply. Russia behind him ... as behind the fortress walls in height from 2 to 5 km wassat Armenia has no access to the sea, which is sad for the Atlantists, and Armenia does not go to the Caspian. Here to sell rusty weapons, yes. And why should Americans invest? Improving relations with Armenia automatically worsens relations with the obstinate Turkey and Azerbaijan, the anti-Iranian component is also conditional. Already have their own satellite - Georgia. And with access to the sea and the Caspian Sea no further. There are no wells in Armenia either. This is the splendor and poverty of Armenia.

      So that the Armenians do not speak, their policy is basically unchanged. Now, after the definitively pro-Western forces have come to power, although I say this - the Armenians have chosen them democratically, this vector will look even more clear and impudent in relation to Russia. If you read the Armenian press and listen to some political scientists and officials from the government, you can make the following conclusion - the Armenians did not make the "revolution" for the sake of cheap Russian gas! Are you laughing, why not offer the Armenians such a little ?! The Armenians will try to solve naturally at the expense of Russia and, of course, they hope with the help of the United States their territorial claims a century ago, in which, in their opinion, Russia is solely to blame! In the opinion of the Armenians, Russia is to blame for the "wrong" arms trade with the "wrong" partners and for the "wrong" participation in the resolution of the Karabakh issue ... Yes, a lot! A lot can be written about this. I will say briefly the Armenians are holding an equal sign between the Bolsheviks and today's Russia, in general Russians in terms of responsibility for the Moscow and Kars treaties! Those. Armenians accuse Russia of the loss of Kars, Ardagan, Ardvin and Surmalu, which the Soviets gave to Turkey and Nakhichevan, Nagorno and Plain Karabakh were transferred to Azerbaijan. At the same time, the Armenians completely forget how the Russian Empire actually saved them from complete destruction. Moreover, in recent years in the Armenian environment there is an increasing opinion that they saved themselves! Let me remind you of just one episode. In 1915, during the genocide of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire, the Russian-Turkish border was opened by the personal decree of Tsar Nicholas II. 2 Armenians were saved. At the very border, many tables were laid at which Russian officials received refugees without any formalities. Each member of the family was awarded a royal ruble and a special document giving the right to get a job throughout the Russian Empire for a year. Use all types of transport free of charge. Good clothes were distributed to those in need, and people were fed free of charge. Medicines were distributed and medical assistance provided. Thus, 375% of the entire Armenian population of Turkey was saved. I repeat, this is just an episode and by no means the most heroic in the salvation of the Armenian people by the Russians. I do not appeal to the "grateful" memory of the Armenians - you and I need to know this! Russian.

          Read at least the Armenian authors, in particular, the work of G. Ter-Margarian "How it all happened". In particular, he writes how Armenian women fleeing from all this Turkish terror to the Russians across the open border grabbed the legs of the Cossacks sitting in the saddles and kissed their boots.

            Forgive me, but what kind of enlightenment we are talking about. In all likelihood, this person in his life held a book in his hands a couple of times. He recently took part directly in the Pashinyan races in Yerevan. He himself confessed at the forum how, with friends, they would take a taxi from the aul and ride together to "support democracy" in Armenia. laughing

    "Region of the South Caucasus does not represent for the United States of great value. Washington and Moscow region considered first from the point of view of its geographic proximity to Western Asia (Middle East) - to Iran and Syria. ", the beginning of the sentence contradicts its ending. If it were not of interest, the Americans would not have invested in organizing the unrest.

      Agree with you!! For the United States, any point on the Earth, whether it is Armenia, the South Pole or some chicken coop in Ukraine, matters, they will find how to use it, especially against us ... And Caspian oil ... But we are kind, we will help them, we’ll open a channel to the Indian Ocean through Iran - we are already negotiating with India and China about financing the project - well, what a fine fellow we are!

      In an uninteresting region SUCH an embassy like they are not building in Yerevan ...


      So the Americans are building the largest embassies in those parts of the world where they are going to make a big batch in the future. These objects as a citadel possess all means of turning into a secret fortified object at the moment necessary for Washington. In the Armenian diplomatic corps alone, 500 marines are deployed. Why place so many bayonets in the embassy? So a big batch is planned in the region. By the way, the USA has been trying to build a new large embassy in Baku for 20 years. The leadership of Azerbaijan fundamentally does not give them land for construction. It got to the point that the US government purchased a large plot from a private individual, from one deputy. Later, the deputy was arrested and the agreement was canceled.

      Baku refused to build a new building of the US embassy

          The protection and evacuation of diplomats is one of the tasks of the us marines. Now strain your brains and think about what awaits the Armenians.

          Alexander Gareginyan: Today, a US military base operates in Yerevan - 800 marines stationed in the bunkers of the embassy, ​​which is the largest embassy building in the world.

    The president and sovereign owner in Armenia is now George Soros. He usually arranges a crisis where he managed to get into power. The goal is the purchase of cheaper assets. The closest example is Ukraine, but there the crisis dragged on and Soros suffers losses. In Armenia, he will act somehow differently, thinner, probably, but the Armenians will not feel better about it.

    Well, let's accept this as truth. Then if the South Caucasus was of interest to the United States, Armenia would gladly open its arms? In a word, an elementary excuse for Russia on Bolton’s offer to be friends with the United States and buy their weapons.

          In Yekaterinburg, we have Azerbaijanis and Armenians, if not brothers, then best friends. Gather Pashinyan and Aliyev together and agree on the status of NKR under a common protectorate. Otherwise, both you and their people will revolutionize the color revolution, after which they will take Karabakh under their protectorate and do whatever they want in both countries with this sauce. They will keep Georgia in their current status, but with respect to Iran this is an option: the ports of Georgia, through Armenia to Azerbaijan, to the Iranian border.

            Gather Pashinyan and Aliyev together and agree on the status of NKR under a common protectorate.

            Pashinyan is an inadequate person. Interim ruler. He avoids meeting with Aliyev. How to negotiate with him. He offers Baku to negotiate with the people of Karabakh. He says that Armenia has nothing to do with Karabakh. Karabakh supposedly is a separate country, and in turn organizes military exercises in Karabakh with the participation of the Armenian Armed Forces. In addition, he sends troops of the Ministry of Emergencies and explosives on combat duty to the front. And Armenian society does not want to return the safety belt at all - these are seven districts that were not part of the NKAR. There was only president Ter-Petrosyan in Armenia who was ready to sign a peace treaty, but his nationalists were removed from the leadership. Before that, they shot his team in parliament. After Ter-Petrosyan, I don’t think that there will be leaders who want to resolve the Karabakh issue peacefully. All the followers of Ter-Petrosyan practically delayed negotiations with a zero result.

    - Do not shrug, but specifically think. They have long been stealthily looking toward the states. And here is Pashinyan - the path to a brighter future - the Armenian people will not understand that radish horseradish is not sweeter. The states of Armenia have a long-standing goal and soil at the moment, for the implementation of their plans is beneficial.

    What can I say, he is right. The Americans have a purely utilitarian hike - what is it that this or that territory with Aborigines is useful from the point of view of US interests. Who can pester how many advanced American airfields, launchers, and bacteriological laboratories can be placed there. At the same time, of course, the territory itself, and even more so its natives, can be of any value to it, except as firewood in a firebox.
