War breaks out between Azerbaijan and Armenia, update: Russian-brokered agreement ends conflict as Armenia capitulates


Recommended Posts

From what I've read, Turkey backing Azerbaijan all the way in this which isn't surprising at all considering their mutual ethnicity.

 

The question is whether Armenia will receive support from the regional power that covertly aided it the last time it went to war with Azerbaijan: Iran.

 

Yes, you read that correctly.  Muslim Iran aided Christian Armenia in its war with Muslim Azerbaijan in the 1990s

More significantly, as I just looked up, Azerbaijan is mostly Shi'a. I was expecting to see that they're Sunni.

Iran is petrified of a "Greater Azerbaijan" that would encompass a large amount of Iranian territory as Azeris are the second largest ethnic group in the country.

That is why they've been pursuing nicer relations with the Azeris in recent years. I think Iran stays out of this. 

 

 

But the funniest thing about this is that Pakistan is backing Azerbaijan, and subsequently, India is backing Armenia!

Could this spiral into a wider conflict?

 

I assume you mean with the US. The answer is no. We well and truly do not give one shit about these two countries. 

 

Russia could get involved on the side of Armenia, but beyond that, who knows.

I don't see why the US government would give a shit unless nukes were potentially going to get involved.

Actually I never had the US in mind, I was more referring to other countries in the region.

The conflict went very, very badly for Armenia which resulted in a Russian-brokered "cessation of hostilities", but  is realistically an Armenian capitulation.

 

Azerbaijan gets to keep the territory it captured in the conflict which amounts to about 50% of the disputed region.

 

 

This was the scene in Armenia's parliament building after the announcement of the agreement:
