Armenia and the United States of America can deepen cooperation in the field of #security and defense. Today, for the first time, a high-ranking #US official spoke about the development of more serious security and #defense cooperation with Armenia. This happened after the Prime Minister of Armenia stated that unilateral security dependence on #Russia is a strategic mistake and that Armenia is balancing its own security system.

Frankly, it is beginning to be revealed how tough the process is.

Yuri Kim, the acting assistant to the US Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs, said during the hearings on #Karabakh in the Senate that the #United States should increase development support to Armenia, as well as defense cooperation with this country.

“We need to increase the amount of aid we provide to Armenia, whether it is development aid, partnership in the defense sector, or working in the security sector. Kim also noted that US support should be increased as much as is acceptable for Armenia.

(Such a statement from America was not expected. But in the current situation, it was like that. I wonder what will be the influence from Moscow?)

This is an extremely important and scary statement for us. It is the first time that a high-ranking official of the United States speaks openly about the need to increase cooperation in the field of defense with Armenia. Deputy #Blinken’s statement that #USA should increase security assistance to Armenia is not a random statement.

If we pay attention to the components of the region, we are also faced with threats that may be made by the United States. I think this statement is being taken seriously in Baku as well.

What happened between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan during these three years after November 10, 2020 is calculated to bring the USA to the region, which is undoubtedly part of Nikol Pashinyan’s scenario.

Finally, the security architecture built since 1991 has collapsed. As a result, if Armenia wins over Russia, will Russia’s role in the Caucasus pass, or will the United States become a Caucasian country?

There are many rhetorical questions. But what does a country in the hands of Armenians promise for Azerbaijan? This is already a visible truth.

Meanwhile, US President Joe #Baden’s administration took positive steps in Armenian issues: he recognized the #Armenian genocide, invited Armenia to the “For Democracy” summit, causing protests from Azerbaijan and Russia, supposedly supporting internal democratic reforms, and allegedly opposing Azerbaijan’s Armenian territory in a political and military sense. provided diplomatic support to prevent military attacks, defended the truth during the discussion of Armenian issues in international organizations, despite Azerbaijan’s open complaints.

During the past year, Armenia appealed to the #UN Security Council three times: twice during the closure of the #Lachin Corridor, once during the military defense attack carried out by Azerbaijan. Three times, Armenia received the support of the United States.

By the way, we were able to get the support of Russia in the same processes.

Former US ambassador Lynn Tracy and current ambassador Christina Quinn visited the Armenian-Azerbaijani border during the threat of military clashes with Azerbaijan. They sent a message from the border that the sovereignty and security of Armenia is a red line for the United States.

Does not one of the red lines count in Iran, and the same rhetoric of both hostile powers shows that the goal is one, and the red lines are one? Iran – USA red line)

A few weeks ago, the US ambassador declared from the Armenian-Azerbaijani border that the US is committed to supporting Armenia’s sovereignty and security. Yuri Kim’s statement today makes it clear that the ambassador’s message is not just words, and that the United States is ready to provide concrete and material support.

Finally, it is proposed in Yerevan that there should be a legal regulation of Armenian-American military cooperation and specific documents should be signed. But from the point of view of institutional cooperation, the best for Armenia may be the US non-NATO ally model. But in the case of Armenian-American military cooperation, what kind of support can be provided?

US non-NATO ally status will mean close military and security ties between #Irevan and #Washington. Non-NATO allies are not bound by the same mutual defense obligations as #NATO members, but they can receive a number of military and security guarantees from the US.

For example, non-NATO allies have access to US military equipment and services on a concessional basis, including the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program, which provides financial and logistical support for the US government’s arms purchases.

The US and its non-NATO allies can conduct joint military exercises. The US may also provide military assistance such as training and equipment to its non-NATO allies. The US can provide logistical support to its non-NATO allies as access to US military bases and facilities.

The United States may share intelligence with non-NATO allies to protect national security interests.

Non-NATO allies can also receive military support from the United States in a crisis. For example, the US conducted military exercises in non-NATO allies Jordan, Egypt, and Pakistan;

sold military equipment to non-NATO allies Japan, South Korea and Israel; provided logistical support to non-NATO allies Qatar and the Philippines; provided intelligence and capabilities to non-NATO allies Australia and India; and provided military assistance to non-NATO allies in crises such as the war in Afghanistan and the war in Iraq.

What exactly is the military support available from the US?

This question is quite interesting for us.

It depends on the relations between the two countries and the concrete conditions of the situation. Non-NATO ally status underpins close military and security cooperation between the United States and its allies.

The Armenian Armed Forces are allegedly undergoing reforms recently, and extensive and deep cooperation with the United States can be a great achievement. Military and defense cooperation with the USA is calculated to ensure the stability of security around Armenia.

But why does the occupying Armenia think that the USA can be a more stable and secure military ally than Russia and #KTMT. Then the position of the occupying country will be based on the occupation in an even stricter form?

The Armenian-American peacekeeping exercise continues for the third day in Armenia.

Gadabey, Nakhchivan have been under fire by Armenians for three days without interruption. I believe that this is aimed at preparing a very good ground for the implementation of new projects. In other words, let Azerbaijan provide a reason for the US to stay in the region forever with a retaliatory strike.

And they claim that “when the Prime Minister of Armenia stated that the unilateral dependence of security on the CSTO is a strategic mistake, the citizens of Armenia should take concrete steps to correct this mistake. The direction of the US is very important. We will follow the development of this issue.”

Back to the US:

  1. The USA/mainly institutions and the senate believe that Azerbaijan is an enemy like Russia.
  2. The Administration believes that Azerbaijan is a good partner for the United States in the field of energy and friendship with its allies in Europe.
  3. The USA chooses Azerbaijan as a victim to settle in Armenia: its main target is Russia.
  4. The security environment in the Caucasus is quite sensitive and the question is how a non-Caucasian power can stay here.
  5. No other power in the Caucasus except Armenia, not even NATO Turkey, wants the presence of the US in the region.
