Despite Violations, the Azeri-Armenian Cease-Fire Will Hold -- For Now
The Azeri-Armenian cease-fire will be undermined by both sides on the ground and in their capitals. But for now, Turkish-Russian cooperation and domestic problems in Armenia seem poised to prevent more large, state-on-state clashes. On Dec. 28, Azerbaijan said one soldier was killed by an Armenian armed unit in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, violating the Nov. 10 truce. The clash followed several earlier incidents in December. Nagorno-Karabakh authorities accused Azeri troops of capturing some of their soldiers following clashes between Azeri and Armenian-backed forces between Dec. 11-13 that killed several soldiers on both sides. Azeri and Armenian authorities have begun regularly accusing one another of violating the truce that ended weeks of fighting and resulted in reported casualties on both sides.

Azerbaijan, Armenia: Washington Turns Its Attention to the South Caucasus
For the first time ever, U.S. national security adviser John Bolton is calling on the three countries of the South Caucasus. Bolton visited Azerbaijan on Oct. 24, where he met President Ilham Aliyev and highlighted the importance of Azerbaijan's role in the international energy market. One day later, Bolton visited Armenia to meet acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian and discuss the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The U.S. official will round out his tour with a visit to Georgia on Oct. 26. The Caucasus is a major energy corridor and a geopolitical fault line at the intersection of Russia, the West and the Middle East; unsurprisingly, numerous external powers have vied for influence in the region. While the Trump administration has been relatively quiet on the region, a variety of factors have put the area on Washington's radar.

Azerbaijan: President Accelerates Election Timetable
Azerbaijan's president has chosen to move the country's presidential elections forward six months but has given no official reason for the decision. This has set the rumor mill spinning. The move could be meant to sideline the opposition, to minimize the effect a struggling economy has on the outcome, or it could be because of recent constitutional changes. Regardless, it will be important to watch what comes next.

Russia, Iran: Cozying up to Counter Washington
The relationship between Russia and Iran is reigniting. Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Iran on Nov. 1 to meet with his Azerbaijani and Iranian counterparts in the second summit between the three countries. The trilateral format was set up last year by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev to discuss shared concerns and projects in the region. But increasing alignment between Russia and Iran over the last year will give the two countries plenty to discuss.

Control of Nagorno-Karabakh, an effectively autonomous territory that is recognized internationally as part of Azerbaijan, though it functions as a de facto part of Armenia, remains a contentious topic in and beyond the Caucasus.
A Conflict of Interests in Nagorno-Karabakh
The dispute over the contested Nagorno-Karabakh region is nothing new. The conflict has been simmering, and periodically boiling over, since the end of the Soviet era. (Control of the territory, moreover, was a perennial point of contention for centuries prior.) But after Azerbaijani, Armenian and Karabakh leaders signed a cease-fire in May 1994, followed by an agreement in February 1995 to strengthen the truce under the observation of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the feud quieted down. That is, until early April 2016, when violence broke out anew in Nagorno-Karabakh, marking the most serious escalation since the cease-fire's signing. Tensions are still running high in the conflict zone more than a year later. In fact, the dispute is the most pressing security threat facing the South Caucasus today. Cease-fire violations are a common occurrence on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Karabakh forces, and the turmoil

Unlikely Neighbors
It's been a year since clashes between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces left around 200 dead in what has now become known as the "Four-Day War." Despite the carnage, and still locked in a bitter dispute over the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, peace between the warring sides is as elusive as ever.
