Turkish observer: Iran seems to be quietly supporting Armenia in Karabakh conflict

55

The Turkish media continue to publish materials on the Armenian-Azerbaijani armed conflict, which flared up the other day with renewed vigor. A TRT report by columnist Murat Sofuoglu looks at "Iran's likely role in this conflict."


A Turkish commentator writes:

Iran appears to be quietly supporting Armenia in the Karabakh conflict.

At the same time, the author does not hide the fact that the aggravation of the situation in the South Caucasus may lead to a complication of relations between Moscow and Ankara. However, Sofuoglu makes a strange remark that Moscow "supports Yerevan in the conflict." In fact, as is well known, Moscow calls on both sides to immediately cease fire and begin the negotiation process.

The article provides a statement by Bulent Aras, professor of international relations at Istanbul University:

In general, Iran seems closer to Armenia in relations with both countries. For example, Iran is developing trade relations with Yerevan, has a certain political alliance with Russia. Iran is looking at the rise of Turkish nationalism with concern, especially given that the country is home to a large number of ethnic Azerbaijanis who sympathize with both Azerbaijan and Turkey.

For your information: today Azerbaijanis are the second largest ethnic group in Iran. According to the most conservative estimates, every 6 Iranian citizen is an ethnic Azeri.

The publication notes that Tehran will not support Azerbaijan, as it fears the growth of separatist sentiments in its northwest.

From the article:

The political argument of Great Azerbaijan (the hypothetical unification of the lands of Azerbaijan and Iranian Azerbaijan) has long been a threat to the Iranian establishment.

It goes on to say that in this regard, it is more profitable for Iran to stake on Armenia to maintain the balance of power in the region.

      Turkish observer: Iran seems to be quietly supporting Armenia in Karabakh conflict

      Naturally! fellow Iran has its own view of the processes in the region, and they, to put it mildly, with the Turkish ones, categorically do not coincide.

      Somehow the Iranians are not impressed by the increasing influence of Ankara ...

        Erdogan is being chased everywhere and they do not understand his fine mental organization. In Libya, the Egyptians raised wolf flags in front of Sirte. The Greeks do not give up the islands. Idlib was squeezed by the Syrians, but now Iran has its own view laughing With the name Azerbaijan and the name of the people, Azerbaijanis must do something. Vaughn Mikhail Sergeevich did not pronounce it. This is what Azebarzhan says. The name of the area is in honor of the satrap Aturpat, with an Aryan name. Then the Greeks did not pronounce it plainly, the place of the kingdom was named Antropatena. Arabs came, whose diction is even worse - Azerbaijan, and as a result what now. Mom will not recognize poor Aturpat.

              Well, here you say "not quite right"! Firstly in Korea it is "Chinese People's Volunteers"(that's how they officially were called) and saved the DPRK from the final defeat, inflicting the Yankees and their allies serious defeat... After that, until the conclusion of an armistice, both sides acted with varying success, until the front line stabilized, approximately at the place from which the war began (at the 38th parallel). So, who - who "piled" it very much big question! Most likely, the Americans and their allies were "piled on" more!
              But with during the conflict with India - just no questions! There, the PRC retained a convincing victory, in fact defeating 2 Indian divisions and "chopping off" a piece of Indian territory, punching a road to Pakistan (i.e., they completed all their tasks) ...
              But in Damansky - so there they definitely "got rid of" from the USSR!

                Yes, we have already argued about this and recently laughing First, it was the North Koreans who attacked, our permanent representative did not appear, so as not to declare a veto, and the UN coalition fought with the Korean-Chinese. The Chinese fought ugly, if both Koreas lost a commensurate number of people, the coalition lost 40 thousand killed and one hundred thousand wounded, but the Chinese lost 400 thousand killed and half a million wounded. One in ten. And if not for the pilots of the spacecraft Zhe Duba, there would be a complete end. The PRC army was essentially destroyed in Korea. Therefore, then the sweep of Taiwan also failed. As it turned out ... forever.

When Ka Same Oak with Stalin's falcons showed that the Super Fortress would not pass .. meaning the planned strike against the USSR with fifty atomic bombs. And so yes, as before the attack of the North Koreans and returned to square one. And I trust the numbers of the Chinese less than the USA. At that time, the Americans had not yet adopted the lie. It is closer to Nixon that such a weapon appeared. And the Chinese, they don't know how to count people and don't want to. Plus Taiwan they had no one to take and nothing.

      Looks like Iizer's hands that have grown out of their ass cannot pull off Turkey's plans for Nagorno-Karabakh ... even taking into account Israeli aid ...
      The leader of the nationalist Party of Great Unity of Turkey (bbp), Mustafa Destiji, proposed to put on the parliament's agenda a vote for a mandate to send military to Azerbaijan.

      “The parliament should offer the government of the Turkish Republic to send troops in support of Azerbaijan to fight against Armenia. The parliament must approve the mandate to send Turkish troops to Azerbaijan, ”he said.

    I want to tell you one thing. A couple more days of such intensity of the conflict and that Armenia and Azerbaijan need to organize a military express. With approximate parity, well, Az is a little stronger. but the motivation is the Armenians and that the logistics of the delivery of weapons is complicated by that and that (I think Russia will not supply weapons to Azerbaijan now). So about the main thing, I think that the striped ones will now whisper to the Georgians how to behave, it seems that Azerbaijan needs help. Well, of course they would gladly agree. So much for the ears of conflict.

    Judging by the announced losses of the Azerbaijani army, this morning, Iranian military specialists with extensive combat experience are also engaged in the defense of Artsakh. It was not for nothing that special flights from Tehran were rhythmically landing at the Khojaly (Ivanyan) airport during the summer, the heated rhetoric of both Turks and Azerbaijanis contributed to this.

    Iranian "Azerbaijanis" are the same Persians, but speaking the Turkic language (a consequence of the conquests of the Central Asian Ottoman Turks). In Turkey, the situation is mirrored - the Kurds, who make up 25% of the population, are Iranian-speaking.

    So it is quite possible that Iranian Turkic-speaking people are deported to Turkey in exchange for the deportation of Turkish Iranian-speaking people to Iran.

    PS If Azerbaijanis continue to struggle in Azerbaijan, the Persians will also be sent to Turkey to reunite "one people" - Recep Erdogan (C) laughing

        Most of the inhabitants of the Anatolian Peninsula (today's Turkey), the Iranian Highlands (today's Iran) and the Eastern Caucasus (today's Azerbaijan, Chechnya and Ingushetia) belong to the same ethnic group - the Northern Semites (carriers of the J2 haplogroup).

        It is another matter that in ancient times nomads passed through them like a skating rink - first the Black Sea Aryans (hence the Indo-European language among the Persians and Kurds), and then the Central Asian Turkmens (hence the Turkic language among the Turks and Azerbaijanis). The native North Semitic language, Nokhchi, has survived only among the Chechens and Ingush.

    Iran appears to be quietly supporting Armenia in the Karabakh conflict.
    And why in this situation, like Erdogan, knock himself on the chest with his heel and yell to the whole world that Turkey will not abandon Azerbaijan, will help everyone that there is a catch phrase - "two countries, one people." Erdogan showed everyone that he is actively stirring up the conflict, and even if Iran is helping Yerevan with something, it does not shout about it at every corner.
