Israeli Arms Shipments To Azerbaijan: Against Iran Or Armenia?

February 28, 2012

The Israel Aerospace Industries company plans to sell to Azerbaijan drones and air defense systems at USD 1,6 bln. The Israeli Defense Ministry deemed the issue a resolved one. Chairman of Islamic Committee of Russia Heydar Jemal rendered his version on Tel Aviv’s selling weaponry to Baku to GeorgiaTimes.

According to the contract, Azerbaijan will get anti-aircraft systems and missile defense systems, without naming the precise volume of arms provided to Baku.

“Selling weaponry to Azerbaijan is another attempt to exert psychological pressure on Iran. Selling drones and air defense systems to Azerbaijan must enhance the conflict level in ties between Baku and Tehran. Israeli weaponry may advance Azeri positions in relation to Armenia, whereas Armenians themselves get enough arms supplies from abroad. Israelis, similar to Americans, always define the conditions under which their armaments must be used. I deem the Tel Aviv-Baku arms deal to be Israel’s transmit to Iran. A Nagorno Karabakh conflict resumption is a mere matter of time. Relations between Armenians and Azerbaijanis for years have remained tense,” Jema said.

Iran has recently accused Azerbaijan of cooperation with Mossad.

Asked whether Israeli intelligence may be found in Azerbaijan, Heydar Jemal said, “Azerbaijan is in close ties with Israel, also in the military field. Baku-Tel Aviv military cooperation implies close relations in the field of military reconnaissance. Azerbaijan has taken the role of Turkey for Israel…”

Thus, tensions between Israel and Iran keep mounting…

NATO Wants Azerbaijan As Wedge Between Russia And Iran

February 28, 2012

On April 9, a high-ranking NATO delegation will visit Azerbaijan in order to begin negotiations on granting the country an Individual Partnership Action Plan.

The meeting will discuss Azeri politics, security, defense, scientific capability, and environment problems.

So far, Azerbaijan has been moving very cautiously towards NATO, out of consideration for its neighbour, Iran. However, the tense political situation in the region has prompted Baku to seek a new policy direction.

Azeri analysts believe that NATO will be welcoming of their country, as it could help further separate Tehran and Moscow, it could secure an otherwise “risky” country like Azerbaijan, and it may provide access to Azeri energy resources.

  1. Hi, The Vegan Marxist!

    You may remember me as Spartacus from the RevLeft before I was banned for “rape apologism” (read: defending Marxism-Leninism from burgeous slanders). I have been reading your site with great interest and I have to say that it is great and very informative.

    I have contacted you for the following reason:

    -you have been regularly reporting on Shining Path movement in Peru and I was wondering why you haven’t put the news about the capture of its supreme leader Comrade Artemio. Here’s the news:

    http://insightcrime.org/insight-latest-news/item/2207-capture-of-artemio-spells-end-for-shining-path-faction (I don’t know how to put a link here)

    Cheers and all the best!

    • Hello Spartacus,

      I know I should’ve presented an article on the capturing of Comrade Artemio, but there were far other more important events going on at the time, and I was also in Michigan at the time, reporting articles in a motel room with shitty service. So I had to be as limited and productive as possible to make sure the necessary information was going through.

      If any other new developments arise out of the topic of the Sendero Luminoso, or the arrest of Comrade Artemio, I’ll be sure to post it here.

      Thanks for commenting though. I’m glad to hear you’re still around, even after RevLeft’s bullshit purging of ML’s and Maoists.

      Hope all is well,

      TVM
