PKK in Armenia?
Simultaneously with the Azerbaijani military operation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, the role of Turkish and Pakistani forces alongside Syrian mercenaries has become apparent, to the point that it is becoming a full-scale war in the region.
Ukraine has also declared its readiness to help Azerbaijan and the conflict has gone beyond the region. Accordingly, news has been published about the readiness of Kurdish leftist groups, including the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the People’s Protection Units (YPG), in this battle. But why should these groups go to Armenia?
The reasons that some proponents of this issue rely on are as follows: First, one percent of the world’s Kurds live in Armenia and Nakhchivan, and the Kurds have also been killed in the battles over Nagorno-Karabakh. The second is to meet the military needs of Kurdish groups through Armenia. The third case is the presence of Turkey and Syrian militants in this battle, which is at war with the Kurds.
The question is, how can the Kurds reach Armenia?
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is not happy with the actions of Turkey and the Syrian militants in his country, has condemned the actions of Turkey and its mercenaries in the war against the Armenians. On the other hand, he has tried to attract the Kurds in Syria by giving them some concessions. Now that another proxy war has broken out, the presence of the Kurds in the mountain battles could be very effective and increase the weight of the developments towards Armenia.
Before the attack and a week before the start of the Nagorno-Karabakh war, the Turkish and Azerbaijani media in a pre-emptive move strangely accused Iran’s role in allowing the Kurds to cross into Armenia, and tried to warn the Islamic Republic of Iran against the passage of these forces.
However, as long as the Russians are on one side of the equation, there is no need for Iran to cooperate with the Kurds, and they can take Russian planes to Armenia and the battle lines in Nagorno-Karabakh.
On the other hand, Armenians living in other countries are willing to make any effort to change the equation by announcing their readiness to participate and provide financial assistance.
Armenians living in Georgia, Lebanon, Russia, the United States and France have already proven that they will do everything in their power to survive.
Also, the presence of a population of 15 million Azeris on the territory of Iran and the southern borders of Armenia and the uproar that is heard to stage Iran’s Azeris to put political and economic pressure on Armenia, indicates that a major collision is taking place. Although the Islamic Republic of Iran has only provided political support to Azerbaijan and is not taking part in a war that is not in Iran’s interest, this thinking challenges the northwestern borders.
On the other hand, Elham Aliyev introduces himself as an Islamic ruler! and demands the maximum support of all Muslims for himself and the actions of his government. On the other hand, Nicole Pashinian considers this battle sacred and a clash of civilizations.
The same options, along with Turkey’s stubbornness and insistence on continuing the war, could spark another proxy war, but this time along Eurasian highways and energy.
