The Caucasus Neighborhood- September 9, 2013

The Caucasus Neighborhood is a weekly roundup of news from the region. Developments this week had a lot of people in Armenia singing “Back in the USSR” with President Sargsyan’s abrupt decision to join Russia’s Eurasian Union, despite years of work towards an association agreement with the European Union instead. We also look at tension in the Caspian Sea basin as Iran speaks out on Azerbaijan purchasing naval arms from Israel.
