Armenia PM: Use of force won't go unanswered, and there will always be more than adequate …

The unified security system of Armenia and Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) is more than ready to protect the security of the Armenian people in every sector of our homeland. This is what Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan stated during a joint session of the Security Councils of Armenia and Artsakh in Yerevan.“The use of force won’t go unanswered, and there will always be a more than adequate response to use of force at the levels of the military and politics.President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev also understands this, and, in essence, he has put himself in a deadlock. For over 15 years, he has been promising his people to solve the Karabakh issue through the military and has spent billi

53% of Armenians have a positive image of the European Union

Yerevan /Mediamax/. 53% of Armenians have a positive image of the European Union (EU), compared to 44% in 2016. The number of persons with negative opinions of the EU is just 9%.

5/10/15: An order for Miller, “an important stage”, the death of Kirkorian

Today we live in a society, which can not imagine life without expressing views on social media. Probably it does have certain advantages.

To fill the gap Mediamax presents 5/10/15 project, which introduce developments in Armenia 5, 10 and 15 years ago.

Calling for a quality public discourse in Armenia

Public discourse in Armenia today remains beset with problems and the behaviour of the authorities is hardly a role model. If the government does not commit to improving the quality of discourse and its own behaviour, the country may be faced with a long-term challenge affecting other areas of public life.

Armenia and Azerbaijan's Season of Symbolic Offensives

Eighteen months on from a reported agreement by Armenia and Azerbaijan’s foreign ministers to prepare their populations for peace, both states have in reality remained largely preoccupied with consolidating domestic power due to enduring socio-economic frustration and populations radicalized by the ‘four-day war’ back in 2016.

A rapidly evolving international context since then has been dominated by regional tensions in Ukraine and the Middle East, and between the United States and Iran. And the

Turkey's Ottomanist Ambitions Target Armenians in Lebanon

Egypt and the United Arab Emirates were in a bloc together under the unwilling leadership of Saudi Arabia to contain Iran. The US tried to impose on Saudi Arabia a mutually exclusive policy, which was doomed to failure because on the one hand, Riyadh was assigned to lead the Sunni bloc, and on the other hand, it was aligned with Israel.

Turkey’s Ottomanist ambitions are not the creation of Armenian paranoia; they present a real plan and a threat to its neighbors. Turkey has always played the role of a necessary evil for NATO. Whenever a mischievous plan was hatched, it was assigned to Ankara to execute it. In return, the West lavishl

LITTLE ARMENIA—Last week, on one of the first days we had returned to the Asbarez offices, a friendly phone call from a long-time supporter humbled and inspired us.

That long-time supporter was Nazareth Kevonian who, having heard that Asbarez had resumed printing after several weeks of hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was calling to see how things were progressing at Asbarez.

He was very concerned about how Asbarez maneuvered the mandated restrictions due to the pandemic. We explained that while we published every da
