The main reason behind the disaster war between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh. The region is recognized as a part of Azerbaijan but is currently controlled by Armenia. Due to the disputed region, both countries have fought two bloody wars in the 1980s and 1990s. Moreover, after two bloody wars, they have declared a ceasefire over the region but Azerbaijan never agrees to peace and wants their area back in the country.
After seeing the tensions in the region in 1980 the Soviet Union has conduction voting in the Nagorno-Karabakh and the people of the region have voted for Armenia. This is because of the majority of Christian people live there. However, this voting has sparked the war in the region that ultimately ends in 1994. You need to know that the war is also flighted on the basis of religion as Armenia is a Christian majority country and Azerbaijan is a Muslim majority country.
Several reports state that Turkey is the main region behind the war. Countries like Russia and France have also warned Turkey to get back from the war but it doesn’t seem effective as the war is still going on and thousands of innocent people are losing their lives. Moving further, let’s discuss some more on it.
Countries influencing the war
Mainly two countries that are Turkey and Pakistan are adding fuel to the fire. The Prime Minister of Armenia has stated that Turkey is funding ISIS terrorists to fight against them. Moreover, Pakistan is also supplying the terrorist to Azerbaijan. On the other side, Armenia has got support from Russia and France. If we look at the exact situation of war then somehow Azerbaijan is dominating the war. This is because of the involvement of ISIS terrorists.
Other than Turkey and Pakistan, Israel is also supporting Azerbaijan, and support can be seen in the form of weapons supply and drone attack that is destructing Armenia’s army. Moreover, some defense experts are predicting that it can turn into a world war as no country is agreeing to stop the fight and led peace in the region.
Effects of fight
The destructive fight is resulting in the loss of thousands of people’s lives. It is also creating disability in the region and thus can act as a buffer for a wide range of war. If the fight is not stopped soon then it could also turn into a world war. Let’s hope for the best and pray for the people of Nagorno-Karabakh who are suffering from worse time. Many NGOs are working for the people of the disputed region. Their main aim is to protect the lives of innocent people.
Lastly, winning does not matter but the thing that matters most is the lives of people. If the people are unhappy then there is no meaning in winning the war. Moreover, the United Nations needs to perform its role in setting up peace in the region.
