16 հոկտեմբեր, 2019 13:21 Armenia Should Be Cautious in Managing its Relations with Israel Respecting Iran’s Redlines: Iranian Expert Iranian public opinion and the Iranian government alike, highly value the country’s ties with Armenia and the overall perception about Tehran-Yerevan relations have been always positive. As a result, almost all the analyses about Rouhani’s recent visit to Armenia were positive, both in terms of bilateral ties with Yerevan and multilateral diplomacy within the EAEU. As for the Iranian view toward political changes in Armenia, the overwhelming view in Iran was that it’s a purely domestic issue. Iran’s only concern was the possibility that the events might have caused instability in Armenia, which would affect Iran directly because of its neighborhood with Iran. But fortunately, the calm came back to Armenia very soon and the new administration showed that it’s stick to the policy of good relations with Iran. 14 October, 2019 11:08 Ted Hopf: The Distribution of Identity in Asia and China's Regional Hegemonic Prospects Ted Hopf, Professor of Political Science at the National University of Singapore delivered a lecture on “The Distribution of Identity in Asia and China's Regional Hegemonic Prospects” at Russian-Armenian Slavonic University in Yerevan, on October 11.

14 October, 2019 10:23 More Confidence Building Needed for Karabakh Negotiations: Benyamin Poghosyan The Karabakh conflict settlement process continues to interest regional security dynamics pundits. Yet, despite the growing optimism immediately after the "Velvet revolution" in Armenia, in recent months the prevailing mood has been more pessimistic. The two meetings between the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan at the beginning of 2019, and negotiations on the level of the foreign ministers, did not result in any breakthrough. The significant decrease in the number of incidents along the line of contact and on the Armenia-Azerbaijan international border since October 2018 is a positive step, though here also one can see recent increases in clashes resulting in casualties on both sides.

11 October, 2019 08:59 Vicken Cheterian: Time for Armenian and Azerbaijani diasporas to talk to each other The 2018 changes in Armenia did not produce any revolutionary discourse concerning the Karabakh conflict.
