Daily Sabah: Defeat of Armenia could be a new window of opportunity

The 44-day hostilities in the NKR ended with the signing of a ceasefire agreement on the night of November 9-10, in which the heads of the Russian Federation and Azerbaijan Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev, as well as Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, took part. Baku returned the lands lost during the last war, and Yerevan experienced the bitterness of defeat. But, according to the experts of the Turkish edition of Daily Sabah, the fiasco of the Armenians may become a new window of opportunity for them.

After the end of the conflict, Yerevan experienced two types of defeat. First, Azerbaijan dealt a heavy blow to its neighbor's armed forces, with the result that Armenia desperately forced its children to fight. It remains unclear how the country faced with serious financial and social upheavals will be able to overcome such large-scale material and human losses.

Secondly, during the Karabakh war, the national values ​​of Armenia were greatly undermined. The education system and history textbooks of this country have glorified Nagorno-Karabakh for a long time, telling Armenian children that the occupied Azerbaijani lands are almost sacred.

Unsurprisingly, determined to continue fighting, Armenians were perplexed by the ceasefire agreement. According to media reports, an attempt on the life of the Prime Minister of Armenia was suppressed last week. Chaos is expected to prevail until Pashinyan, responsible for the Karabakh war, agrees to step down.

What should Armenia do in the future? Until now, the government in Yerevan has pursued a destabilizing regional policiesby occupying Azerbaijani lands and refusing to normalize relations with Turkey. Armenia not only fueled instability in the region, but did not receive any economic benefits. However, with the end of the Armenian occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh, a new window of opportunity opens up for Yerevan.

Armenia and neighboring states will benefit from the normalization of bilateral ties with Azerbaijan and Turkey. For this, as a first step, it is necessary to work on the official ideology of Armenia. To begin a new chapter in history, Yerevan needs to remove racism, nationalism and ideological clichés from its textbooks.

    As always, Russia chooses the first of two evils.
    He who chooses shame receives both shame and war. Russia has chosen this option.
    If you want to moderate the new Fuhrer (Erdogan), then you are stepping on the same rake that Britain has come in time.
    Erdogan will not stop at this victory, then he has Syria, Libya and then back Armenia and G. Lavrov will continue to chew snot, talking about some kind of Russian interests.

        Moder doesn't like this word here, but you can guess, despite the fact that the stranger is personally dedicated to you, you don't need to translate the arrows here:

        (...) the law is not written, if it is written it is not read, if it is read it is not understood, if it is understood it is not so.

        If Erdogan is a Fuehrer (as you say), then he is still a "microfuehrer" and he is not the first in the queue.

          Boy what do you know about life, war, honor. Play tanks there you don't have to apologize for meanness, but in life sometimes you have to pay for dishonorable actions.
          Open the maps and see now where the oil and gas of Azerbaijan will go. And all thanks to the master Pu and his friend Erdogan

            Childish babble (or provocative, or pro-Armenian) from some comments about the Fuhrer of Turkey ... Of course, you can write any nonsense, freedom of speech permits. but it is also necessary to justify what has been said. By and large, Erdogan's progress today plays into the hands of Russia, so let it be anything, if it is beneficial to Russia. To explain, this removes the influence of the United States and NATO, which is more undesirable for the Russian Federation ... We will find and continue to find a common denominator with Turkey at this difficult time for the Russian Federation ...

    In fact, right, there are dofig possibilities.
    1) Turkey and Azerbaijan owed a favor that they didn't fit.
    2) The weapon was spent - it will be necessary to buy new, train, negotiate, etc.
    3) the infrastructure is damaged - it will be necessary to build.
    4) The past authorities were blown away - the new ones will be more comfortable ...

    The benefits of the oligarchs are obvious ...
