ArmInfo.The shoots of the territory of Armenia from Nakhijevan is a part of global politics. Expert on regional issues Karen Veranyan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
On the night of July 17, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces from the territory of Nakhijevan fired on the village of Yelpin of Vayots Dzor region of Armenia. On July 16, a fire broke out as a result of shootings from the territory of Nakhijevan on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border.
According to expert estimates, shootings from the territory of Nakhijevan is part of Recep Erdogan's geopolitical "events". At the same time, Ankara is accumulating troops on the border with Syria, is trying to cut the energy axis Greece-Israel-Cyprus operating under the sponsorship of the United States, and aggravates the situation by illegal actions in the direction of the water area of Cyprus. According to Veranyan, these actions are derived from the contradictions between the West and Turkey. In particular, the deliveries of Russian C-400 complexes further deepened these contradictions, up to and including the revision of Ankara's role in NATO.
Noting that the EU, in turn, imposed sanctions on Turkey for drilling in the Cyprus water area, the expert recalled that Brussels is extremely interested in natural gas reserves in the Eastern Mediterranean. In particular, the EU plans to complete the construction of the EastMed gas pipeline by 2025, through which gas through Israel, Cyprus and Greece will flow to Italy. "Nakhijevan and the South Caucasus fall within the framework of this logic, taking into account the EU's desire to reduce the regional influence of Ankara and Moscow as far as possible. To these realities should be added the US efforts to curb Tehran's regional ambitions. In this light, Turkey is already entering an active period of its own isolation, that will make this country even more aggressive and unpredictable ", - concluded the expert.
