This is clearly not valid. It's aggression against a member country, not aggression against it's soldiers out of the country. Did you see any joint NATO forces invoking the article and invading Syria when Turkish troops got killed?
In reality it´s a generation load of Armenian and Azerbaijani young men and woman escaping the boredom and lack of a perspective, just let them get on with it, they are having the time of their lives in a real live action ego-shooter.

Pogroms...goulags...genocide? Doesn't sound like "having the time of one's life.

Re: Azerbaijan and Erdogan call for completion of the Armenian Genocide

This is complete disinformation. He doesn't say anything about a 'genocide'. He is referring to Turkey's role in supporting Turkic communities in the Caucasus for centuries and he says Turkey will continue this mission.

You are entitled to have whatever opinion you have in this matter but spreading lies is out of order.

Re: Azerbaijan and Erdogan call for completion of the Armenian Genocide

The commentary from Israel and Iran is more than interesting:

Quote:
The wider regional issue is important. Israel has good relations with Russia, which supports Armenia. Israel has very bad relations with Iran, which also supports Armenia. Israel has good relations with Azerbaijan but bad relations with Turkey, and Turkey supports Azerbaijan.
https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/do...nalysis-643714

Quote:
There have been allegations that Iran supports Armenia, which in turn is supported by Russia. Recently, videos circulating on social media purportedly showed military equipment being transferred to Armenia via trucks passing through an Iranian border pass. Iran quickly denied the allegations, saying they were “baseless rumours” aimed at smearing relations with Azerbaijan.......Parts of modern-day Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkey were once part of the Persian Empire, with communities spread on either side of the modern boundaries. As a result, many of the ethnic Azeris who live across Iran, especially in the provinces of Ardabil and East Azerbaijan bordering Azerbaijan, feel a close kinship with people across the border. “In terms of political divides and official borders we are two separate countries, but psychologically and religiously we are one nation,” says 42-year-old Soleiman, a resident of Tabriz, the capital of Iran’s East Azerbaijan Province.
https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/10/5/iran-nk

Damned 2020. It could end with Iran, Turkey and Israel agreeing on one thing.

no its not. did you watch the video? he openly says: "we will continue to fulfill this mention, which our grandfathers have carried out for centuries, in the Caucasian again. I would like to state that we strongly condemned the attacks made by Armenia against brother Azerbaijan."

it is a veiled threat which shows clear intent. it is also disingenuous given Turkey is the aggressor, not Armenia.

Re: Azerbaijan and Erdogan call for completion of the Armenian Genocide

Outrageous thread title, Mods intervene - where is the call for genocide much less 'completion of genocide' from either Erdogan or Azerbaijan in those links?

None. Agendas like this are repugnant

А mission to "support" communities in foreign countries is always a not-so-veiled way to claim control over said territories. Erdogan urgently needs outside distractions to counter the mishaps of his incompetent management of Turkey and such behavior will one day bring a clash. He's spreading way too thin all over the Middle East and North Africa and as much as his 1m army is a power to be reckoned with, having 2 fronts is something that even the Pentagon actively tries to avoid. He'll suffer. Hopefully.

you cannot just make up lies about things that were not said by looking at the people who said them and the situation they are in. To suggest someone is talking about committing such an outrageous act as a genocide just out of conjecture is unacceptable.

have you been following what Erdogan is doing and how he is harking back to the Ottomans? I think you lack some context here. Happy to discuss, I'm not having a go at you btw

The region was distabilized by your country more than a hundred years ago as soon as oils was discovered there.
