YEREVAN, December 17. / ARKA /. The geopolitical situation in the South Caucasus is getting crystallized, according to Gagik Harutyunyan, head of Noravank Foundation.
Speaking at a news conference preceding an international forum in Yerevan on security challenges and cooperation in the South Caucasus, he said this trend has been prompted by Armenia’s decision to join the Moscow-led Customs Union.
Concurrently, Turkey and Azerbaijan are specifying their relations while West-bending Georgia is eager to normalize relations with Russia.
The three-day conference has brought to Armenia political analysts from Russia, Belarus and Iran who will look into security and cooperation challenges in the South Caucasus together with Armenian peers.
They will, particularly, discuss the prospects for creation of a South Caucasus regional security system, look into Iranian- Turkish relations against the backdrop of the Syrian crisis, discuss the geopolitical implications of the Eurasian integration process for the Greater Middle East and try to determine the current state and prospects for a resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh problem. -0-
