Armenia-Azerbaijan Conflict: Why Turkey's Intervention Could Turn It into a "Proxy War"

Democracy Now!

October 9th 2020

The foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan are in Moscow for talks following two weeks of fighting over the disputed territory Nagorno-Karabakh. At least 300 people have already died in what could turn into a wider regional conflagration, with Turkey openly supporting Azerbaijan and Russia backing Armenia. Nagorno-Karabakh lies inside Azerbaijan but is controlled by ethnic Armenians. "Turkey's intervention on the side of Azerbaijan is very destabilizing," says Anna Ohanyan, professor of political science and international relations at Stonehill College. "It creates the conditions of transforming this conflict into a proxy war." #DemocracyNow Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.
