Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. The inauguration ceremony marked an end to a dramatic political transition and the commencement of a new administration, which could bring newfound policy towards Armenia and the broader Caucasus region. In a position paper, Biden’s campaign promised to recognize the Armenian Genocide, restore demining aid in Karabakh, and review security assistance to Azerbaijan. But how far is Biden’s administration willing to go during his presidency? U.S. political analyst Eric Hacopian says that he is confident that the new administration will restart its engagement in the South Caucasus, which could be in Armenia’s favor. Currently, Russia and Turkey are the only major players in the region.
