The presence of Nancy Pelosi in Armenia increased tensions between the US government and the Russian government due to the statements he had about the war between the Caucasus country and its neighbor Azerbaijan. Russia has had a military pact with Armenia since 2020 and, although it tried to solve this war situation through mediation, the Putin government did not achieve the positive results they expected.
“We strongly condemn these attacks,” denounced Pelosi, who again stirred up the hornet’s nest of international politics, in the middle of a speech she gave in the city of Yerevan, which generated discontent not only in Azerbaijan, but also in Russia, who had a good relationship with Armenia, but they feel that this situation makes them turn to the side of the Americans.
The war between the two nations started over a dispute over the unrecognized territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, an area of 4,400 square kilometers that legally belongs to Azerbaijan, but is populated by an ethnic Armenian majority. Despite the fact that over the years there were skirmishes, last week the war between the two nations finally broke out, in what meant the largest war conflict between them since 2020.
In this way, Nancy Pelosi returns to the focus of the news by stating that “this war was started by the Azeri”. The speech of american politics was harshly repudiated by Azerbaijan’s foreign minister as “unjust and baseless” accusations that constitute a “strong blow to efforts to normalize relations” between his country and Armenia.
Again in the eye of the hurricane
This is not the first time that the presence of Nancy Pelosi generates discontent between the United States and other rival countries. During the month of August, the politician was in Taiwan, on a visit that angered China, who claimed that Pelosi’s visit “tramples the ‘one China’ principle” and threatens peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. .
The important thing to understand is that Taiwan is a country that is not recognized globally due to the complex relationship it has with the Asian giant, one of the members of the UN security council. Even the United States does not officially recognize the independence of the island, although it has buildings that function as pseudo-consulates and maintain a strong commercial relationship, including the sale of weapons.
