Azerbaijani Presidents signs a deal that ensures the surrender of Armenian forces and the end of the war in Karabakh. Azerbaijani president says it is a 'historic day' and 'very happy' over the agreement.
Armenia agrees to surrender the province of Aghdam to Azerbaijan by November 20.
Russian peacekeepers will be deployed to Lachin corridor that will ensure the link between Karabakh Armenians and Armenia for 5 years.
Armenia agrees to surrender the province of Kelbajar by November 15, and agrees to surrender the province of Lachin to Azerbaijan by December 1.
Azerbaijani internally displaced people will return to Karabakh and other occupied regions under UN auspices.
Azerbaijan and Armenia agree to free transportation, including guarantees that Azerbaijanis will be able to travel by ground between Azerbaijan and Nakhchivan (also Azerbaijani territory).
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev says they were supposed to sign the peace deal through video conference between Armenian PM, Azerbaijani President and Russian President Putin. Armenian PM Pashinyan backed out in the last minute.
Aliyev says it is understandable because Armenian PM didn't want to sign his country's military capitulation on live TV.
Azerbaijani president shows his clenched fist and says Armenia surrendered because of ''this iron fist'', not over closed doors with meaningless negotiations.
Azerbaijani president says he signed the deal ''with great pride'' because it ends 30-year occupation without shedding any more blood. ''This is great glory,'' Aliyev said.
Aliyev says ''we took revenge for Khojaly massacre victims'' today. Khojaly is an Azerbaijani city that was completely massacred by Armenians in 1992.

A lot of people have been asking me about the latest flare-up between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Here is what happened and why:
Let me start with a little background. Throughout the history, Armenians were scattered around the region in the Middle East and South Caucasus, including eastern Turkey, Iran, Syria, Lebanon and some lands in South Caucasus.
Ironically, today's Armenia, including its current capital Yerevan were predominantly populated by Muslim Turks, or Azerbaijanis. After twin Iran-Russia wars in the early 1800s, the demographic landscape in the South Caucasus had been changed significantly.

Many people keep asking me what is going on regarding Trump-Erdogan meeting and why Trump seems like taking a step back in imposing sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of Russian S400 systems. Here is what's happening:
Almost ten years ago, Turkey started negotiations with U.S. and European defense contractors to buy air defense systems to bolster its three-tiered Mediterranean air defense system and integrate into NATO's existing ones.
Around this time, several pro-Iranian groups in Turkey organized a humanitarian aid flotilla to confront Israel's blockade of Gaza. The bloody brawl on Mavi Marmara ship pitted Turkey and Israel against each other for many years to come.

In the age of Trump, these polls don’t tell the entire story. That’s the reason why all polls failed to predict his victory. One reason is that some people avoid saying publicly (some ashamed, some fear backlash) that they support Trump, even to a pollster.
2. To win the presidential elections, you don’t need to win the popular vote or have high approval rating. You just need to win several battleground states like Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. These are Trump strongholds.
3. U.S. electoral system is designed to favor rural voters. It worked until today because in no time in the history did any party has such a disproportianate representation in rural areas than the GOP today.

FAQ: Erdogan could have easily avoided economic sanctions by releasing the pastor. Why is he insisting on this? Here is why.
Turkey's credit-driven economy had been sagging this year. To avoid crushing financial meltdown before the elections, he called for snap elections and easily won before the economic crisis hit. He is facing another local elections next year.
Erdogan's government now understands that there is no way to stop looming economic crisis. How to win an election in the midst of high unemployment, high inflation and melting local currency? Blame America.

There is a reason why Turks risk death to flee with their babies. It's not that they are looking for a better life. They are fleeing torture and life imprisonment.
These are not criminals. They are teachers, doctors, IT specialists, journalists, professors. Women, elderly, babies. All of them are banned from working in bureaucracy. Their universities, newspapers, bakeries were shut down.
Their names (nearly 200,000 of them) are openly published in Official Gazzette as terrorists so no one would give them a job. Some employers exploit their labor with salaries that are 10 times less than the average.
