Paraguay: Medical oligarchy defies justice system


“Armenian Armed Forces have caused an environmental genocide in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan”

PACE Resolution 2085 defends the rights of the Republic of Azerbaijan to be free, sovereign and live in peace and stability with its neighbors, American political expert Peter Tase told Azadinform.


“It is imperative that Azerbaijan and its Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan acquire a full territorial sovereignty from the agresor state and Government of Armenia” he said.

The expert added that we should remember that Armenia has occupied for over 20 years, the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven districts that are next to Nagorno-Karabakh region, also it has invaded and occupied over 450 square kilometers that belong to the Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan, which is an integral part of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

“The world, including Washington DC, should become more familiar with the ongoing Nagorno-Karabakh conflict which is becoming ever more dangerous to the world peace and stability”.

According to Tase Armenian Armed Forces have caused an environmental genocide in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.

He underlined that Armenian Troops have destroyed more cultural and archeological sites in Nagorno-Karabakh than the Islamic State has destroyed in Syria.

The world should know about the 25 year long Blockade imposed by the Armenian Brutal Government against the Hard working people of Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan.

Baku. 5 May. REPORT.AZ/ Armenia has violated the ceasefire on innumerable occasions since 1994 and the escalations of violence in April 2016, by the Armed Forces of Armenia against the innocent civilians of Azerbaijan are not a surprise.

Report informs, US political analyst Peter Tase said that.

“It is a fact that Armenia is ruled by a puppet government that does not have a foreign policy, solid public institutions while it is engulfed by corruption, unemployment and nepotism scandals that are on the rise. The government of Serzh Sargsyan is totally ruined by corruption, a high level of unpopularity and the Armenian people are struggling every day with: unemployment, poverty and lack of democratic institutions; as a consequence Armenia is becoming a failed state. Every time that the Armenian Government faces a great level of unpopularity within its own constituents, Yerevan attempts to divert the attention of domestic public by further violating International Laws, constantly ignoring the Four UN Security Council Resolutions, and continue with its attacks with heavy weapons and ammunitions in the sovereign territories of Azerbaijan, and as a consequence killing innocent civilians, destroy cultural and archeological sites; while massacring historical treasures on the Azerbaijani land.” – P. Tase added.

Scoff No More at Paraguay

By: Peter Tase, Guest Scholar at the Council on Hemispheric Affairs            

Paraguayan President Horacio Cartes has prioritized efforts to link Paraguay closer to the Asia-Pacific countries as a major component of his overall strategic objective. Despite this prioritization, the country’s foreign ministry has made few concrete steps towards reaching out to grasp President Cartes’ aspiration. Asunción’s meager assets certainly make the goal challenging, but the country’s Foreign Ministry has failed to explore several options, particularly improved bilateral relations with Bolivia.

Paraguay faces the fundamental challenge of an unfavorable geographic position. Along with Bolivia, it is one of the two landlocked countries of South America. This geographic limitation has forced Asunción to resort to political pressure and regional foreign policy management to build global economic connections. The Bolivian border holds unexplored potential for Paraguayan exports and economic growth. La Paz could provide a pathway for Paraguay’s agricultural products to gain access to all of the markets in the Andean region, as well as the ten member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), where Paraguayan products are in high demand. Establishing closer ties with Bolivia would help Paraguay avoid its normally troubled trade routes through Argentina, which often have proved to be problematic and have caused a great deal of frustration of Paraguayan trade ambitions. Paraguayan export-import companies whose shipments pass through Argentinean territory are subject to extensive searches by border patrol and are often delayed by port authorities in Buenos Aires. [1] Despite the improvements in trade, poverty levels, and economic integration that a shift toward Bolivia would bring, some critics maintain that the Paraguayan Foreign Ministry has done little to increase trade relations with La Paz.
