Elmar Mammadyarov: The USA wants intensification of the Karabakh conflict settlement process
 Wednesday, June 5 2013 08:50

ArmInfo-Turan. Azerbaijan's Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov told journalists after his meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Washington on 3 June, that he is going to meet the OSCE MG co-chairmen on 7 June in London.

He said he is pleased with the results of the talks with John Kerry. "America wants the talks with the co-chairmen and other states of the region gain an intensive nature and have a progress. Mr Kerry affirmed that American Administration is interested in budging the settlement process", - he said.

The USA understands that if the talks give no result, that will be a  strong blow upon the region. For this reason, one of the topics of the talks was - "What will the surrender of the "occupied" territories bring to Armenia?", the minister said. "Azerbaijan says: let Armenia withdraw its troops, and in that case the funds which we spend for armament will be directed to development of the region", - Mammadyarov said. He also expressed Baku's displeasure with activity of the OSCE Minsk Group.

US Secretary of State to visit Armenia over the current year
 Wednesday, June 5 2013 08:48

US Secretary of State John Kerry said at the meeting with Armenia's Foreign Minister, Edward Nalbandian, in Washington, on 4 June, that he is going to visit Armenia over the current year, press-service of Armenia's Foreign Ministry reported.

"Armenia today is an important partner with United States in a number of initiatives. Importantly, they're helping us in Afghanistan with ISAF, they've played a key role in Kosovo helping to keep peace there. And one of the most issues, obviously, that we all really want to try to see resolved one day is the frozen conflict of
Nagorno-Karabakh. It is critical that all the parties - when I say all the parties, I mean, obviously, the Azerbaijanis, but also Turkey, Russia, Iran, others - try to find a way to help break the impasse that has kept this struggle alive and always potentially dangerous," John Kerry stated.

"We also have other issues of great importance to us: the economic partnership, the development of the economy and strengthening of democracy, and the security of our friends, the Armenian people," Secretary Kerry said.

Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian thanked Secretary Kerry for the warm welcome and said it's a pleasure to him to be in Washington.

"Both countries have a good interaction in the international arena covering international regional security, proliferation, fight against terrorism, as you mentioned, peacekeeping operations from Kosovo to Afghanistan, other challenges, who are sharing vision - same vision - that it is important to continue efforts to find exclusively peaceful solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict based on the principles and norms of international law, particularly non-use of force, excessive force, self-determination, territorial integrity who are sharing the vision that the relations between Armenia and Turkey should be normalized without preconditions, who
are sharing the same values of democracy, fundamental freedoms, liberty, human rights, market economy, who are very thankful that during the last two decades since our independence, United States extended very important support for Armenia, and we are thankful for that, Minister Nalbandian said.

Cellular communication bad for beekeeping
 Tuesday, June 4 2013 15:42

 Cellular communication has left no space for beekeeping in Armenia, President of the National Association of Beekeepers of Armenia Telman Nazaryan told journalists on Tuesday.  He said that in the Soviet times there were 300,000 bee families in Armenia. In the 1990s their number dropped to 40,000.

"By 2012 we had restored our bee population to 200,000 families, but there are lots of environmental factors that make further growth problematic. One of them is cellular communication," Nazaryan said.

He said that this is not only Armenia's problem. "In the last few years the bee population worldwide has dropped by 40%. In 2012 Germany lost almost 75% of its bee families, Europe and the United States 60%," Nazaryan said.

He said that 800mHz electromagnetic waves are fatal for bees. "And this is exactly the frequency of our cellular communication stations," Nazartyan said.

He still believes that Armenian beekeepers will be able to increase the bee population to 500,000 families. He said that in 2012 Armenia produced just 50-60 tons of honey.

"But we still hope to be able to export our honey," Nazaryan said.

 Tuesday, June 4 2013 15:39

VTB Bank (Armenia) offers a new opportunity for TelCell terminal users: from now on the bank's customers will be able to credit their bank or card accounts or repay their gold-secured loans using any of almost 800 TelCell terminals all over Armenia in a couple of minutes round-the-clock.

VTB Bank (Armenia) began to cooperate with TelCell in 2011. In early 2013 it switched to the real-time mode, which means that the bank's processing center records a TelCell transaction once it is carried out.

"Our customers are interested in distant banking services. Based on the successful experience of our cooperation with TelCell, we have decided to switch to the real-time mode so as to make our services quicker and easier. We are confident that our customers will like this novelty," says CEO of VTB Bank (Armenia) Yuri Gusev.

VTB Bank (Armenia) is part of VTB Group. Its owner is VTB Bank, the second biggest bank in Russia. The bank has the biggest branch network in Armenia's banking system (67 branches) and the biggest number of issued international plastic cards.

Israeli expert says military coup possible in Turkey
 Tuesday, June 4 2013 13:40

The ongoing unrest in Turkey may lead to a new military coup in that country, Israeli political expert Avigdor Eskin told ArmInfo.  The expert believes that Turkey is changing its image these days. Even if Prime Minister Erdogan manages to suppress the wave of protests, they will have a crucial role in the history for the former Ottoman Empire.

"I witnessed the overthrow of Nicolae Ceausescu in Romania, then the public unrest in Russia in 1991 and 1993. The scales are incomparable. Turkish dissidents managed to awaken the entire city. No spontaneous speeches for the authorities. A silent majority of people went into the streets protesting against extreme forms of
Islamism. They do not favor Erdogan's aggressive behavior and country manners either. Actually, the entire creative class protests against Erdogan's regime. Students, intellectuals, businessmen and artists have come together on the same side of the fence," he said.

Eskin thinks that Erdogan is so far losing with every new day of protest that involves more and more people and shakes once strong positions of the authorities. 

"At present, a military coup is also possible, given that it once had happened in Turkey before. If the police display violence and the victims to clashes reach significant scales, a new military coup is quite possible," he said.

At the same time, Eskin said, interference of external forces into the current developments on the shore of Bosphorus is not real at the given stage. Those forces failed to stop bloodshed in Syria. As regards Syria, the Israeli expert said, the unrest in Turkey may weaken the international pressure on Bashar Assad. The latter can take advantage of the situation and strengthen its positions.

"Inherently, what is currently being observed in Turkey is Middle East autumn. It is Arab Sprint with a negative sign. Nevertheless, at the given stage, the ongoing public unrest in Turkey constitutes no threat to the neighbor states," Eskin said for conclusion.

Expert: Situation in Turkey reflects processes developing in Dar al-Islam
 Tuesday, June 4 2013 11:12

The situation in Turkey reflects processes developing in Dar al-Islam, director of the Armenian Centre for National and International Studies, Manvel Sargsyan, told ArmInfo correspondent when commenting on recent disorders in Turkey.

"These are rather serious and big processes. But it is not clear yet if they will gain the organized nature or not. The position of the state structures and army to the given processes is not clear either", - the expert said.

He also added that if the situation goes on developing, the army will play a crucial role. "If the army supports the ruling regime, the situation will be similar to that in Syria. But if the army supports the people, the process will develop the way it used to develop in Tunis", - he said.

On May 28 2013, a few hundred people gathered at Istanbul's Gezi Park. They were there to protest the demolition of Taksim's last remaining public park. The people gathered in the park were mostly environmental activists, leftists, and a few outspoken public figures; artists, musicians, actors-actresses. They had only one aim:
to protect the trees in the park from being cut down (or ‘transferred to a more suitable spot as claimed by the government representatives) and to protest the planned construction of a replica of 19th century Ottoman Barracks in its place, which was to serve as a luxury residence and Istanbul's 94th shopping mall. They could not have known that they were about to ignite the biggest civil protest movement Turkey has witnessed in the last three decades.

"The Turkish society is different from the Armenian one. Their people are freer and less humble than ours. That's why their protests are more resounding. Besides, they are a strong country, one of the world's top 20 economies. So, they simply can't have slavish mentality," Safaryan said.
