New Geopolitical Struggles
"Much of history concerns the discovery and development of new worlds, followed by struggles and wars among competing empires seeking to dominate those new worlds. There are new regions and new republics emerging from imperial domination which seek political and economical alignment with the international community. It is in the Caucasus and Central Asia that the next great geopolitical struggles will occur. Hopefully, they will take place in a non-violent manner. Without a doubt, Azerbaijan will be central to those developments."
