Some shadows over the preparations of the Georgian parliamentary elections
12.09.2012 | Artūras Mankevičius
It looks that the preparations for the Georgian parliamentary elections of 1st October are not without shadows. After several days of conversation with local people (from the city market to the representatives of the state institutions), the received information and number of facts creates some shadows. Briefly, if to cite only a few facts those lead to worry.

In resolving local conflicts great powers pursue their own interests
14.06.2012 | Laszlo Kemeny
Armenia should first of all become “interesting” to its own citizens. Once it becomes interesting to its own people, it will certainly interest people in the West and in the East. So, what you need is self-confidence and pride!

There will be no big opposition, but there will be no big coalition either
25.05.2012 | Alexander Tsinker
One cannot say that there will be a big opposition, but one can say that there won't be a very big coalition. It's good that the intrigue remains. Actually, from the point of view of political technologies, the Prosperous Armenia Party has made an interesting move.

What electoral system is better for Armenia?
21.02.2012 | Alexander Tsinker
Top debates and discussions are underway in Armenia on the threshold of parliamentary elections. What electoral system to use this time? That is the question. What is better for Armenia: to retain the existing mixed electoral system or to transfer to the 100% proportional electoral system?

Not all Jews share Lieberman’s viewpoint on Armenian Genocide
07.02.2012 | Alexander Tsinker
In "Our Home is Israel" party, which Lieberamn represents, the Azerbaijani lobby is very strong, and naturally, it will come against recognition of the Armenian genocide, while the Armenian Party is strong in Likud alliance.

Discussions at Knesset on December 26 is victory for Armenian lobby
02.01.2012 | Alexander Tsinker
I believe that today’s discussions and their results are a victory of the Armenian lobby. The Knesset held the first discussions of the Genocide, there have been no such talks before. Obviously, the battle is just getting started, but it is a clear step in the process.

It's better to resolve problems at the negotiating table but not battle fields
16.11.2011 | Alexander Tsinker
I think that Israel will not independently take such radical steps without coordination of its actions with the USA and the leading countries of the European Union. We also hope that if Russia and the USA come to a single viewpoint about the Iranian nuclear issue, which Barack Obama has recently said about, in that case Ahmadinejad will hardly be so much uncompromising.

Israel-Turkey. The essence of apologies’ price

Turkey seeks to serve as a policy guideline of the “Arab Spring” by supporting not only the change of power in the Islamic countries, but also the change of regimes.

NK issue has one solution, and it is peace solution
25.08.2011 | Alexander Tsinker
I will note with great sorrow that NK issue is a frozen conflict. So we do not speak about its settlement now. NK issue is often compared with Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And though this comparison is not complete truth but the experience of negotiations between Israel and Palestine may be used during the negotiations between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Israel is not ready to recognize Armenian Genocide yet
25.08.2011 | Alexander Tsinker
I want to note that there have always been forces in Israel which claimed Armenian Genocide must be recognized. I am sure that Jewish nation who has endured Holocaust now has no right to ignore the tragedy of another nation. But my personal attitude and official attitude of Israel are quite different cases. It was and remains unchanged.

29.04.2011 | Alexander Tsinker
Over these two decades the country has experienced a complete turnaround from an agrarian republic with a primitive, raw materials-oriented infrastructure and the lowest per capita income in the former USSR and has come to play a significant role in the Central Asian region.
