Anthony Blinken: US Administration May Review Security Assistance To Azerbaijan

The United States may reconsider its security assistance to Azerbaijan in light of the latest military action in Nagorno-Karabakh. This was stated by the candidate for the post of Secretary of State in the administration of Joe Biden Anthony Blinken.


Blinken supported the provision of financial assistance to Armenia to maintain its security and overcome the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh. Funds can be allocated to help "in the area of ​​security and to strengthen democratic governance and promote economic growth." At the same time, the United States will revise its assistance to Azerbaijan.

In light of the recent outbreak of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, our administration will review our security assistance to Azerbaijan (...) if circumstances warrant, the Biden-Harris administration will be prepared to suspend the exemption from Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act

Blinken said.

Recall that Section 907 of the US Freedom Support Act prohibits any kind of direct US assistance to the Azerbaijani government.

At the same time, according to Blinken, the United States intends to finally settle the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and prevent a new war. Washington will "promote a lasting peace" reflecting the interests of Armenians, not just "Aliyev, Erdogan and Putin."

The President said the United States must lead diplomatic efforts to find a lasting solution to the conflict, working with our European partners, and must seek international humanitarian assistance to end the suffering. If confirmed, I will intensify US engagement in the search for a definitive solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict that protects the security of Nagorno-Karabakh and helps prevent a resumption of war

- added the likely head of the American State Department.

    Divide and rule ... A very interesting statement, it turns out that the United States does not recognize Azerbaijan's sovereignty over Karabakh. I wonder if Baku's reaction will be ...
    Washington will "promote a lasting peace" reflecting the interests of Armenians, not just "Aliyev, Erdogan and Putin."
    Something I didn't see the name of Pashinyan in this list. Or did he not sign any agreements?
    The main thing is that the US course is clear on the complete separation of Armenia, like Georgia and Ukraine from Russia, well, it is not for nothing that they have such a large embassy in Yerevan.

            Interestingly, after the "great desire" of the United States to prevent the war, will it start again in Nagorno-Karabakh? ) They can invest a lot of money there ...

        How offended. In Yerevan, the cockroach reserve (the American embassy) occupies an entire block. And they puffed Pashinyan into the ears of the ideas of democracy. He, like a naive Pinocchio, believed that "a haberdasher and a cardinal are strength" and began to behave accordingly. For which, in the end result, he received a bite from Azerbaijan and Turkey. And then the command sounded: "Enough, otherwise you will kill." And there was peace with the peacekeepers. All. Finita la comedy. Nowhere to stick your sting in. Left out of work. Maybe wave your fists after a fight. And Pashinyan is already a little bit different.

    It's too late to hustle. War is over. And for the final scheduled for 2025, Azerbaijan has enough weapons. His aircraft, especially taking into account the trophies, are now even redundant. Old systems can be written off with peace of mind.

    That is, the United States has already settled the conflict, but not completely. And now you need to "finally" settle?

    That is why - from decade to decade, from country to country around the world - wherever these "peacekeepers" poke their heads - everywhere with renewed vigor are war, bombing, blood, chaos, destruction of the state? Am I the only one who can see it? Why is nobody in the world noticing the results of American "peacekeeping"? If you don't know how, why the hell are you climbing? If it didn't work out in a human way, well, two ... But constantly, with the stubbornness of a ddebiloid, banging my head against the wall and getting the same disgusting result ?! ... is such constancy beyond my understanding ...

    The Armenian lobby in the United States was in a hurry.
    I think we will see further events in five years, when the agreement on peacekeepers ends.
    If a number of Armenians live in the territory controlled by Azerbaijan and they will not have problems, then the Armenians of Karabakh themselves will not be eager to fight when control over Karabakh is transferred completely to Azerbaijan. After the recent events, the conditions for military actions for Armenians became unprofitable - in fact, in a sack, there are no prospects for a radical improvement in the economic situation in Armenia itself, in order to radically modernize the army so as to openly start a war with Armenia.
    Perhaps that is why Aliyev took a timeout for this.

Now they turned on the back one, and "we have nothing to do with it. Eat matzo, play with the ball"? Late, you just prove once again that your "help" is not worth a damn. First they brought Aliyev to power, then they promised help if he fell out with the Russian Federation. then they left first Armenia, and now Aliyev. That is, the principle is - betray everyone.

    Anthony Blinken, the candidate for the post of secretary of state in the Joe Biden administration, may remain a candidate, because Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green has introduced a draft resolution on impeachment of the 46th US President Joseph Biden to the US Congress with the following wording: "Biden is incapable of holding the office of [US] president. His abuse of power as vice president [of the United States under 44th US President Barack] Obama is lengthy and troubling. President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever he can to save his son Hunter and stuff his family's pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies. "

    Blinken supported the provision of financial assistance to Armenia to maintain its security and overcome the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh

    So the claws of the Democratic hawks are beginning to bare. Armenia has the largest US embassy of all the former Soviet republics. Pashinyan is their protégé, and has held on to this day. Before him one main task is to squeeze the Russian military base out of Armenia. He has already called for this, led rallies and demonstrations. The new US administration will give it a new "impetus", which Blinken does not hide. The same task is facing the new Prime Minister of Moldova. Tensions between the United States and Russia will only grow, across the board.

    Biden often acted in the interests of the Armenian lobby and in 1995-2007 was a member of the Armenian Affairs Group of the US Congress [24]. He voted for the adoption of the anti-Azerbaijani Amendment 907 and for the allocation of American financial assistance to Armenia and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic in 1992-2008 [24].
    He wants to launch his brainchild, which other presidents have canceled.
    But Biden is 79 years old ...... And after him, whoever comes will most likely again cancel the 907 amendment ..... And for ever.

              This happens everywhere!

              This is true, but "everywhere" is more local, in a particular country or, at most, in a region. But what the neo-liberals / globalists / democracy have done is more global.

                The ruling circles, faces, this concept is rather international .... just some emphasize their role, significance, and most act like quiet people.
                Their actions, common, have created the present world, the situation.

                    But whatever you call them .... they are at the head of the general, world system of government.
                    National elites, leaderships, to one degree or another, they depend on them or, at least, take into account their interests.
                    The system is not eternal, but so far.

    At the same time, according to Blinken, the United States intends to finally settle the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and prevent a new war. Washington will "promote lasting peace"

    Interesting thoughts woke up in Blinkin about peace and war. And this is where you were when the war was raging in Karabakh. Although when the war, the United States is head in the sand, and the war is over, so here we are ready to help and take part in preventing war in the future.
    Double standards, their own benefits and meanness, an integral feature of these lads.

    The United States decided to butter up the Armenians and support its agent, Pashinyan.

    However, this will not help the Armenians to return Karabakh, the purpose of this provocation is to feed the Armenians and subsequently drag them to NATO in order to sever military and economic ties between Armenia and Russia.

    assistance "in the field of security and for strengthening democratic governance and promoting economic growth"
    If confirmed, I will intensify US participation in the search for a final settlement
    helps prevent a resumption of war
    Paraphrasing the American bird yahyk into Russian, we can say for sure that Armenia needs to prepare for a new war and new "color revolutions". One hundred poods.
