Die Welt: Turkey's actions on the border with Armenia are a signal to Europe

Turkey's actions to support Azerbaijan in the conflict of the latter with Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh and in border conflicts between the two countries is an opportunity for Ankara to show the strength of its ambitions to Europe, writes the German newspaper Die Welt.

Militant rhetoric Erdogan's support for Baku is not just empty words. This is known from the actions of Turkey in Syria and Libya, where the Turkish President is realizing his foreign policy aspirations to create a "new Ottoman Empire."

Azerbaijan supplies Turkey with cheap gas, and the conflict between Baku and Yerevan is a convenient excuse for Ankara to protect an ally and demonstrate the strength of its foreign policy ambitions backed up by weapons. Turkey shows that its voice sounds loud enough in the Caucasus as well.

Here she may come into conflict with the interests of Russia, which supports Armenia, but this does not frighten the Turkish leader - the confrontation between Ankara and Moscow has long been taking place in Syria and Libya. Putin is not interested in an open conflict with Erdogan, his goal is an unstable Nagorno-Karabakh with the ability to sell weapons to all belligerent parties.

Threatening Armenia and supporting his Azerbaijani satellite, the President of Turkey once again conducts policies intimidation.

The war in Nagorno-Karabakh is a demonstration of its power, addressed to Greece and all of Europe

- believes Die Welt.

Turkey is in conflict with Greece and the EU over gas fields in the Eastern Mediterranean. By actively interfering in the Armenian-Azerbaijani affairs, Ankara demonstrates that it is capable of going very far in achieving its goals.

    And not a word that Armenia does not comply with 4 UN resolutions where this is Germany. They are also silent that the Azerbaijani refugees for 30 years cannot return to their homes. And Germany should remember 2 world wars and then blurt out something. Turkey does not show anything in the Caucasus. Azerbaijan is not the Caucasus but the Transcaucasia. Turkey speaks of its brothers in faith and nationality, which the Germans cannot understand. What is intimidation? And why these Germans do not write that the Turks' patience is not immeasurable ... ... ... the Armenians were warned ... ... ... why the Germans did not write that the Armenians were shooting at the civilian population and again killed 2 children.

    Jackals are two-faced. I am very glad that the Turks are in Germany as well as other emigrants. I hope I will live to see the days when he will have nothing left of the former Europe!

      And for me, somehow, the theme is closer, when in the early 90s both the Armenians and Azerbaijanis beat and killed the Russians who lived there and drove out everyone who survived. After that, almost without a break, they themselves flooded to Russia for a better share.
      You have not heard anything there about returning to the Russians (or their relatives who survived) their houses, looted property?
      You, with your worries, did not get there, here they still remember the history well and know your worth.
      Declare your mobilization in Russia and fight.

    And I like Erdogan more and more. A real statesman! With Nagorno-Karabakh this is a strong move. If Putin kept his promises about the tomato, and tourism would have squeezed, then Erdogan would not have behaved like that now. But greed has ruined! The hucksters!

      If the Armenians are pressed now, they will organize a small fire raid on vital pipes. TAP / TANAP, oil pipeline. It's not far there, even Iskander is not needed. Enough of something like Whirlwind, Point U. And the contents of the pipes burn well.

    One gets the impression that the State Department and MI6 of Erdogan and Aliyev are being bred like Saakashvili. They promised on the sly, they got excited, and then they will throw them like pedal suckers, leave them alone to clean up with Armenia, Russia and Europe. Yes, the EU is also not very happy with this adventure, but they will gladly use it as an excuse to close EU markets for Turkey. And then Erdogan (and Aliyev) will again crawl on their knees to Putin. But the conversation will be different.
    And the Armenians, along the way, are gouging compressor stations on gas and oil lines. And neither Erdogan nor Aliyev will seem a little.

        will not start ... the Armenians threw Russia, the Turks will bend the Armenians. and the Azerbaijanis have no less rights to the Karabakh than the Serbs in Kosovo.

"... - The main" financial donor "of Turkey today ... is Russia, which Erdogan fooled a lot ... - Today Erdogan is trying to do the same with Europe ... - and he also succeeds ... - That's all...

    A stream of thoughts with porridge in my head

    There are some specialists on the site who can still assess the state of the sagging sofa on which they sit ... - Most of them did not serve in the army and are making such a judgment on this topic that ... what ... that just laughs ...
    -However, they undertake to make assessments for me too ... - They really want to somehow prove themselves "heroic"; well, at least somehow to show themselves brave ... - knowing that this will go unpunished for them ... -So they are already this way and that ... they are trying ... - well, at least to utter something ... - Such a "quartet" is worthless ... -but it really hurts to look ... cool ... -And nothing cool will work, because ... -they themselves are the aforementioned porridge ... -grey, smeared, inedible ... faceless ... `` Hahah ...

      For you? Yes, we are not good for you. Do you have a graduate degree? Well So show your scholarship, and not a set of words that are individually understandable, but together - breaking eyes and an indistinct set of thoughts. You publish so that they do not forget about you, and what you specifically want to say - none of you who read are able to. For you are not able to express your thoughts harmoniously and logically, apparently you have not taught you. So - all claims to yourself! hi
