ArmInfo.Through ancara generated by Ankara, the geopolitical process with the participation of Georgia and Azerbaijan, this country is trying to create and head the Alliance in the South Caucasus directed against Armenia and Russia. Such an opinion was expressed by Arminfo I.O. Scientific Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies by NA Armenia, Academician Ruben Safrastian.
"Thus, Ankara today is trying to create an important geopolitical axis. This process began at the initiative of Suleiman Demirel, however, he received the real outline only after the war 08.08.08. It was the Russian-Georgian war who allowed Ankara to intensify him. Through Georgia's involvement and Zhenazhant in its own orbit and strengthening influence in the South Caucasus Turkey seeks to extremely loosen in the region of Russia. And, of course, it is still more isolating Armenia, "he stressed.
Commenting on the role and place of Iran in Turkish geopolitical projects, the academician noted the presence of Tehran and Ankara as common interests and the possibilities of mutual influence and pressure. Turks for this purpose will involve Turkic-speaking Azerbaijanis living in the northern provinces of Iry, actively spreading there with the ideology of Panturkism. It meets the active opposition of Tehran, which in turn uses a Kurdish factor against the Turks.
The current situation in the Turkish-Iranian relations of Safrastyan characterizes the continuing balance and mutual readiness to compromise during the periods of the threat of violation of this balance. And the same Iranian passivity on Turkish activity during the period of the 44th day war, he links Ankara's refusal to join the anti-air sanctions of the United States. At the same time, in the case of mitigating the new US administration, Iran's policies, relations with Turkey, according to its forecasts, will take place in the stage of uncertainty. Thus, despite the accounting of Ankara Factor Iri in the region, in Tehran, the danger is perfectly aware of which the Panturkist programs of Turkey threaten him. This is especially manifested against the background of the efforts attached by the Turks with the aim of implementing as much as possible, a small advantage gained by them in the results of the 44th day bloodshed in Artsakh.
"Yes, today the Turks in words really offer Iran to participate in the" platform of the world and cooperation in the region ". Here I would like to remind you how in 2008 Turkey offered to take part in a similar platform of Russia, the United States and three countries of the South Caucasus. However, afterwards The United States was actually displaced from the region with the active participation of Turkey. And today Ankara is trying to do the same with Russia and Iran, "the academician summed up.
