Understanding the Armenia-Azerbaijan Conflict
FEATURING SERJ TANKIAN – More than a thousand people have been killed in the latest chapter of a long simmering conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over a sliver of land between the two nations known as Nagorno-Karabakh. After decades of semi-autonomous Armenian rule the conflict in which Turkey and Russia are playing a serious role, threatens to destabilize the entire region. My next guest views the conflict as part of Turkey’s increasing imperial ambitions.
Read the article that Serj Tankian and Maria Armoudian wrote for Open Democracy called ‘Nagorno Karabakh and Turkey’s imperial ambitions,’ HERE.
Serj Tankian is a human rights activist, Grammy Award-winning musician, filmmaker and lead singer of System of a Down. He was awarded the Armenian Prime Minister’s Medal for his contributions to the recognition of the Armenian Genocide. He recently co-wrote an article with Maria Armoudian called Nagorno Karabakh and Turkey’s imperial ambitions.
