Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 15:00 - 16:00
H.E. Dr. Grant POGOSYAN, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia to Japan
The speech and Q & A will be in English.

Last month, an old and violent conflict on the edge of Europe between Azerbaijan and Armenia flared up again. The two countries are fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh, in the southern Caucasus. The region is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but ruled by ethnic Armenians. A ceasefire has been called but it appears to be unraveling with both sides accusing each other of unprovoked attacks. Meanwhile, Turkey, a NATO member, has fully backed Azerbaijan with which it has historical and ethnic ties. Critics say Turkey is pushing the war and providing logistic support for fighters there. There is also concern that Russia may intervene as it did 30 years ago when its strategic ally Armenia forced Azerbaijan's troops out of the region, creating thousands of internally displaced people on both sides.

Armenia's ambassador to Japan, Grant Pogosyan, will talk at the club and answer questions about the conflict and what might be done to end it.
