Iran Prepares Plan For Sustainable Soloution to Nagorno Karabakh Conflict- Putin & Erdogan and Their Foreign Minsisters Talk

Recall my wholehearted agreement with Bhadrakumar?

Btw: Putin and Erdogan have been exchanging views

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu discussed the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh during a phone call on Tuesday, the Russian ministry said in a statement.

They also discussed the situation in Syria and Libya, it added.

 The idea of an Astana 2.0 as probable working solution could help settle this issue?

An Astana 2.0 if you like?

Iran has prepared a proposal for a permanent solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Iranian top diplomat said Tuesday.

Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told state television that his deputy, Seyed Abbas Araghchi, will visit Baku and Yerevan in coming days to present the plan to Azerbaijani and Armenian authorities.

Armenia must respect the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, according to Zarif, who said the conflict must be resolved through peaceful diplomatic means.

Araghchi is scheduled to visit Baku, Moscow, Yerevan and Ankara to promote the Iranian initiative, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh, according to Iranian official news agency IRNA.


Speaking in his meeting with the Governor General of East Azarbaijan province in Tabriz on Tuesday, Seyyed Abbas Araghchi said that security of frontiersmen is very important for the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Turning to his trip to the countries of Republic of Azerbaijan, Russia, Armenia and Turkey, Araghchi added, “In this trip, I am carrying the initiative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to resolve the war erupted between two neighboring counties of Azerbaijan and Armenia.”

He expressed his hope that peace and tranquility would prevail in the region with the cooperation and collaboration of all influential countries in the region.

Governor General of East Azarbaijan province Mohammad Reza Pour-Mohammadi, for his part, pointed to his correspondences with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with regards to the security of borders and added, “Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia are Iran’s neighbors. With respecting to the territorial integrity of the two countries of Azerbaijan and Armenia, we are in favor of a peaceful solution to Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and country’s diplomatic apparatus will certainly take necessary steps in this regard.”

TV Journalist in France Hounded for Nagarno Karabakh Reporting By Armenia's Supporters- "Genocidal Whore"

 The Armenian Propaganda machine has been over the top. Nearly rabid.

Reporters Without Borders

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the online attacks that a French TV reporter received from members of the Armenian community in France after just doing her job by covering the current fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region from the Azerbaijani side of the front line.

Liseron Boudoul, a staff reporter for the French TV channel TF1, began receiving hate messages on Facebook and Twitter, including such insults as “genocidal whore,” after TFI broadcast her report on its 8 p.m. news programme on 22 October. She was also subjected to pressure via a WhatsApp text from someone who had managed to get her personal phone number.

TF1 was itself also targeted by systematic harassment on social media and in emails and phone calls.

Two reporters for a leading French daily were also subjected to online threats from members of the Armenian community in France in early October in connection with their articles about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

“We firmly condemn the harassment to which Liseron Boudoul and TF1 have been subjected,” said Pavol Szalai, the Head of RSF’s European Union and Balkans Desk. “It is unacceptable for a journalist and a media outlet to be hounded in this way for covering a conflict, on the grounds that they placed themselves on a certain side of the front line.”

Szalai added: We also call on Franck Papazian, the co-chair of the Coordinating Council of Armenian Organizations in France, to unequivocally condemn this grave attack on freedom of the press.

In a Facebook comment, Papazian described Boudoul’s report as “similar to disinformation.” One of the comments that followed said: “It’s possible that with a few beheadings of senior TF1 personnel, they will think better and more clearly.”

It's possible with a few more beheadings they will think better and more clearly?

The day after Boudoul’s report was broadcast, members of the Armenian community demonstrated spontaneously outside TF1’s headquarters in Paris in protest against what they regarded as the TV channel’s biased coverage.

A few days before Boudoul’s report, TF1 had broadcast two reports from the Armenian side of the front line. To defuse tension, TF1 finally removed Boudoul’s report from its website.

Caving in to extremist behaviour, bullying and threats TF1 removed the report.

3rd Ceasefire Faltering in Nagarno Karabahk: Predictable- Proof of Foreign Fighters in the Armenian Camp

As mentioned last night

3rd Attempt at Ceasefire in Nagarno Karabakh- OSCE Press Release                      

Where to begin? How about a quick overview? 5 points.

1st-  Armenia is the party least interested in a ceasefire. Azerbaijan has international law in it's corner.  NK being recognized at their territory. Yes, Azerbaijan will fight should it be required, but, they have less incentive to do so when they can negotiate to settle the issue

2nd: This bizarre idea that Turkey wants more instability, on it’s border is...well, bizarre. Seems vastly more probable they DO NOT WANT greater instability. Nor does Iran.

3rd- Armenia has definitely been using foreigners to fight. Besides early reports which had PKK kurds on the ground, which are vastly more credible then reports of Turkey sending Sunni Muslims mercenaries to fight alongside the  Shia Muslims of Azerbaijan  (It’s not believable for more reasons then the obvious Sunni versus Shia dynamic) The PKK and the Armenians have forged relations in Syria that have been discussed more then once at the blog. Their friendly relations boggle my mind, since the Kurds killed many Armenians during the reign of the Ottomans. Apparently all forgotten?

  A number of foreign passports/identification has been retrieved from Armenians (using that term loosely) killed in battle. One was a Canadian citizen.  I’d seen news of his passing in the media here in Canada. So naturally this required some additional digging. Let’s connect the dots

CBC: Canadian citizen dies fighting in Armenia 

Kristapor Artin, a former Toronto resident who moved to Armenia in 2011, was killed while fighting against Azerbaijani forces in the breakaway Armenian-populated region, the Armenian National Committee of Canada (ANCC) said on Wednesday.

"It is with great sorrow that the Canadian-Armenian community mourns the passing of one of its repatriated members, Kristapor Artin," the ANCC said in a Facebook post, adding that he was "an active member of the Toronto Armenian community, before repatriating with his family to his homeland, Armenia.


Kristapor Artin is featured here

Christopher Artin was born in 1972 in Beirut, Lebanon. In 1986, he left for Canada. From 1993-1995, Christopher stayed in Armenia.. In 2001, he returned to Armenia and got married.

 Born in Beirut, Lebanon. Immigrated to Canada. Became a citizen. Then went to Armenia. Then came back to Canada. Maybe? Because his bio has some missing years. Where was he from 95 to 2001? Clearly he fought in 93/94 when Armenia ethnically cleansed the region of it’s Azerbaijan citizens. In 2001, he returned to Armenia and got married.

The FB page that features Kristapor Artin is tied to the organization called-  The International Center For Migration Policy Development (This NGO appears to be a front group for the movement of persons, globally)
Dig a little more And we get to the MIBMA(affilliated with aforementioned NGO) but dealing specifically with Armenia’s “border management”

The project is funded by the European Neighborhood Partnership Instrument (ENPI).  The project runs from January 2016 until December 2019.

The overall objective of the project is to enhance approximation of the migration and border management in Armenia to European standards of governance, in order to increase security, facilitate trade, and support the possible visa liberalization dialogue between the European Union and Armenia.
This NGO's work/purpose  appears to be a project to direct the Armenian diaspora into disputed territory in order to change the dynamics on the ground.  To fight/terrorize if need be. Like the early beginnings of Israel.       

4th - Pashinian, as has been repeatedly mentioned is a colour revolution flunkie. He has Macron fully on board.  The so called alt media has been dancing around this reality. But, it can’t be danced around unless the intent is to deceive. Pashinian is a servant to the global oligarchy that is determined to break up nations. That means Russia, Iran and Turkey as well as Azerbaijan. In order to create the remade ME/NA and Asia that is happening as I type this report.

5th- Some parties want Turkey and Russia at odds, for sure. So far it looks to me as if Russia is leaving Armenia to it’s own devices. Numerous reasons for this have already been mentioned. Such as Armenia’s refusal to settle the NK issue and Pashinian’s colour revolution leadership

-Possible Outcomes?

1- Western Imperial Powers will Recognize “Artsakh” Talked about this here previously. This move will certainly set the region alight!

2- Turkey and Russia will send peace keepers in. The issue of territory will be settled once and for all. The same type of cooperation as we see in Syria. Iran may participate as well.

An Astana 2.0 if you like?

As always, share some thoughts. Relevant to the situation of course.
