04.11.2009INTERNAL DOCUMENTS REVEAL UK OFFICIALS MISLED PARLIAMENT ON ARMENIAN GENOCIDE
A prominent legal expert, Mr. Geoffrey Robertson, exposed this week the false and inaccurate statements on the Armenian Genocide made by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). The international jurist revealed that for many years the FCO (Foreign Ministry) had misled the British Parliament on the facts of the Armenian Genocide in order to curry favor with the Turkish government. The 40-page meticulously-researched report, commissioned by the Armenian Centre of London, is based on hitherto secret documents obtained from the Foreign Office through the Freedom of Information Act. Mr. Robertson, the author of a report titled, "Was there an Armenian Genocide?" served as first President of the UN War Crimes Court in Sierra Leone.
02.11.2009NEW STATUS OF THE IRANIAN NUCLEAR PROGRAMME
At the second half of September new international political situation was created round the nuclear programme of Iran. During the summit in Pittsburg the IAEA stated that Iran is building new uranium enrichment plant near the city of Ghom. This statement brought the “Iranian issue” up to date and created basis for the restarting of the negotiations between Iran and “the six”. The fact that the IAEA statement was made on the day of the “G20” summit is, probably, the result of the information and propaganda struggle by the US against the head of the IAEA and the main content basis of that struggle was the allegations brought against the IAEA that this structure concealed from the international community very important facts regarding Iranian nuclear programme.
29.10.2009TURKISHIZING OF THE PLACE NAMES IN THE REPUBLICAN TURKEY
While analyzing some manifestations of domestic policy of the Republic of Turkey, we can mention that they are mostly of Turkishizing character. There were various processes going on in the newly formed Turkey, which were directed to form the homogeneous Turkish state. This process should inevitably touch on the place names, because in the Ottoman Turkey there were many places named in the languages of the native nations, which directly prove their presence. The place names, at the same time, show the historical past, the history of the people who lived there, some details of their mentality.

15.10.2009ARMENIAN – GEORGIAN RELATIONS AFTER “FIVE DAYS” WAR
The interstate relations between Armenia and Georgia have passed rather eventful and at the same time difficult way since the independence of these two states in 1991.

The development of the Armenian-Georgian relations in the period after August 8, 2008 is no exception either.

09.10.2009CONTEXT OF THE RA-TURKEY RELATIONS
The discussions round the relations between the RA and Turkey, though there are also political speculations among them, has become of an all-Armenian character. As a result, it is difficult to find arguments and grounds “for” or “against” in this issue, especially from the point of view of the analysis of the “protocols”. At the same time there is an impression that the process of establishment of the diplomatic relations (or one of its first stages) is very often, or even exclusively, taken in “lurid” terms or “rosily”.

28.09.2009AZERBAIJAN AND TURKEY PROTECT ARMENIA’S NATIONAL INTEREST INADVERTENTLY
After reviewing hundreds of articles in regional and international media outlets and scores of statements by various officials regarding the Protocols between Armenia and Turkey, it is clear that these agreements will not be ratified by the Turkish Parliament, unless the Armenian government first makes concessions on Karabagh (Artsakh). As expected, there was great agitation against the Protocols last week among opposition political parties in both Armenia and Turkey. Furthermore, some Azeri officials and analysts criticized Turkish leaders for appearing to go back on their repeated promises of not opening Turkey’s border with Armenia until the Karabagh conflict was resolved.

In a previous joint statement released on April 22, Armenian and Turkish officials stated that they had agreed to a “roadmap” which was to normalize their relations “within a reasonable timeframe.” At the time, the two sides had indicated their agreement in principle by “initialing” the two protocols, the text of which was not published until August 31.
16.09.2009WE MUST END TURKISH OCCUPATION OF WASHINGTON
The internationalization of the Armenian Cause during the last several years has apparently caused great discomfort to Ankara. In order to undermine the Cause, Turkey has been intensifying its efforts in the United States by pouring millions of dollars to silence any American public figure or entity that talks truthfully about the Armenian Genocide. Because Turkey has adopted “the end justifies the means” immoral code of operation, its bloody hands have been caught when the bribery of elected public officials in the United States began making scandalous headlines.
11.09.2009THE EU-TURKEY-CYPRUS TRIANGLE: "TURKEY AND ARMENIA VOW TO HEAL PAST WOUNDS", HUGH POPE
It's been a long time coming, but Turkey and Armenia's vow on 31 August to establish diplomatic relations, open their long-closed border and begin to talk seriously about the past is excellent news. As laid out in our 14 April report Turkey and Armenia: Opening Minds, Opening Borders, normalisation between Turkey and Armenia will benefit not just the bilateral relationship. If successful, it could win back for Turkey and its AKP government much of their recently faded prestige as domestic reformers, as regional peace-makers and as a country seriously intending to push forward with its accession process to the European Union. The brief joint announcement from Ankara, Yerevan and the Swiss mediators in Bern said that two protocols had been initialled on the establishment of diplomatic relations and the development of bilateral relations.
