An ancient country in western Asia, by the twentieth century divided among the former USSR, Turkey, and Iran. It was attacked at various times from before the 7th century B.C. to 69 B.C. by Assyrians, Medes, Persians, the Greeks under Alexander, and the Romans. It changed hands frequently in wars between Neo-Persian and Roman Empires from the 3d to 7th centuries and later under Arabs, Seljuks, Byzantines, and Mongols. In the 19th century Armenian nationalism arose but suffered during Russo-Turkish hostilities. It became part of the Soviet Republic in 1921, with part remaining under Turkey.

Primary health care revitalization in Azerbaijan. (1/24)

Of Azerbaijan's 7,564,800 inhabitants, 52.2% live in urban and 47.8% in rural areas. With the transition to market-oriented economy, health problems have worsened. Expenditures for health care fell from 2.9% of GDP in 1990 to 1.2% in 1997. In case of illness, 37% of population prefer self-treatment, and 68% of treatment refusals are due to the inability of patients to pay for the treatment. Maternal mortality rate increased from 10.5 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1991 to 52 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1996. However, diphteria has been reduced to sporadic cases, whereas polio has not been reported since 1996. A pilot reform of primary health care was initiated in one of the districts, and soon expanded to four more districts. The aims were the improvement of health management, rationalization/optimization through development of traditional services, organization of preventative activities, rational use of drugs, institution of sustainable financial mechanisms through affordable fees for services, drug sales within health facilities with corresponding management and the accounting systems for the revenues, development of the exemption system, and community participation in district health. Increased patient attendance to health facilities, improved access to the vulnerable population health services, empowered health system management, better quality of care, and reduced overall individual expenditures were observed.  (+info)

Epidemic diphtheria in the 1990s: Azerbaijan. (2/24)

The diphtheria epidemic in the former Soviet Union reached Azerbaijan in 1991, when 66 cases of diphtheria were reported, a number that compared with 4 cases in 1990. From 1990-1996, 2182 cases of diphtheria and 286 diphtheria fatalities (case fatality rate: 13.1%) were reported in Azerbaijan, primarily among persons 5-39 years of age. Almost 45% of cases and 61% of deaths occurred among children 5-14 years of age. The high burden of severe disease among children and young adults suggested a different pattern of preexisting immunity against diphtheria in the Azerbaijani population than was observed in the concurrent diphtheria epidemic in Russia. Because resources were limited in Azerbaijan, mass immunization of the population was carried out in stages, focusing initially on school-aged children. Mass immunization campaigns targeting children were moderately successful in stabilizing the epidemic; mass immunization campaigns targeting both adults and children were eventually needed to fully stop the epidemic.  (+info)

Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in prison inmates, Azerbaijan. (3/24)

In a tuberculosis (TB) program in the Central Penitentiary Hospital of Azerbaijan, we analyzed 65 isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis by IS6110-based restriction fragment-length polymorphism (RFLP) and spoligotyping. From 11 clusters associated with 33 patients, 31 isolates had an IS6110-based banding pattern characteristic of the Beijing genotype of M. tuberculosis. In addition, 15 M. tuberculosis isolates with similar RFLP patterns constituted a single group by spoligotyping, matching the Beijing genotype. Multidrug resistance, always involving isoniazid and rifampin, was seen in 34 (52.3%) of 65 isolates, with 28 belonging to the Beijing genotype.  (+info)

Fast-track surgical referral in a population displaced by war and conflict. (4/24)

After the 1988-1994 conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, fought over the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, large numbers of people were resettled in camps in southern Azerbaijan. Healthcare in the camps was generally good but there was no access to hospitals. The Leonard Cheshire Centre of Conflict Recovery (LCC) organized a 'fast-track' system of surgical care in the southern camps by securing the help of still-functioning hospitals in the distant capital, Baku. Regular clinics were held in the camps for visiting specialists; and, by arrangement with the Government of Azerbaijan and various non-governmental organizations, treatment was offered to those who fell within strict selection criteria. After a pilot study yielded clear benefits, the scheme was transferred to a local non-governmental organization, which successfully operated an expanded version. The hidden cost of war often includes the neglect of chronic medical conditions that require secondary and tertiary care. The 'fast-track' system illustrates the potential of existing facilities to meet these needs at modest cost, given sufficient support.  (+info)

Prevalence of anemia among displaced and nondisplaced mothers and children--Azerbaijan, 2001. (5/24)

In the early 1990s, the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Azeri region of Nagorno-Karabakh resulted in approximately 600,000 internally displaced persons and 200,000 refugees in Azerbaijan. After years of displacement and despite sustained humanitarian assistance, these internally displaced persons and refugees (IDP/Rs) are still coping with unfavorable living conditions and limited employment opportunities. Results of a 1996 CDC survey in Azerbaijan revealed high rates of malnutrition and anemia among both the IDP/R and resident populations and prompted further study of the nutritional status of these populations. This report summarizes results of a 2001 survey of IDP/R and non-IDP/R mothers and children with anemia in Azerbaijan. Findings indicated that more than one third of mothers and children were anemic, with no significant difference in the overall prevalence between IDP/R and non-IDP/R populations; however, among the IDP/R population, anemia was associated with various socioeconomic factors such as education, socioeconomic status (SES), and area of residence. Future studies should focus on identifying causes for the high rates of anemia in Azerbaijan and developing effective interventions such as iron supplementation and behavior modification.  (+info)

Genetic diversity of Plasmodium vivax isolates from Azerbaijan. (6/24)

BACKGROUND: Plasmodium vivax, although causing a less serious disease than Plasmodium falciparum, is the most widespread of the four human malarial species. Further to the recent recrudescence of P. vivax cases in the Newly Independent States (NIS) of central Asia, a survey on the genetic diversity and dissemination in Azerbaijan was undertaken. Azerbaijan is at the crossroads of Asia and, as such, could see a rise in the number of cases, although an effective malaria control programme has been established in the country. METHODS: Thirty-six P. vivax isolates from Central Azerbaijan were characterized by analysing the genetic polymorphism of the circumsporozoite protein (CSP) and the merozoite surface protein 1 (MSP-1) genes, using PCR amplifications and amplicons sequencing. RESULTS: Analysis of CSP sequences showed that all the processed isolates belong to the VK 210 type, with variations in the alternation of alanine residue (A) or aspartic acid residue (D) in the repeat motif GDRA(A/D)GQPA along the sequence. As far as MSP-1 genotyping is concerned, it was found that the majority of isolates analysed belong to Belem and Sal I types. Five recombinant isolates were also identified. Combined analysis with the two genetic markers allowed the identification of 19 plasmodial sub-types. CONCLUSION: The results obtained in the present study indicate that there are several P. vivax clones circulating in Azerbaijan and, consequently, a careful malaria surveillance could be of paramount importance to identify, at early stage, the occurrence of possible P. vivax malaria outbreaks.  (+info)

Evolutionary toxicology: population-level effects of chronic contaminant exposure on the marsh frogs (Rana ridibunda) of Azerbaijan. (7/24)

We used molecular methods and population genetic analyses to study the effects of chronic contaminant exposure in marsh frogs from Sumgayit, Azerbaijan. Marsh frogs inhabiting wetlands in Sumgayit are exposed to complex mixtures of chemical contaminants, including petroleum products, pesticides, heavy metals, and many other industrial chemicals. Previous results documented elevated estimates of genetic damage in marsh frogs from the two most heavily contaminated sites. Based on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region sequence data, the Sumgayit region has reduced levels of genetic diversity, likely due to environmental degradation. The Sumgayit region also acts as an ecological sink, with levels of gene flow into the region exceeding gene flow out of the region. Additionally, localized mtDNA heteroplasmy and diversity patterns suggest that one of the most severely contaminated sites in Sumgayit is acting as a source of new mutations resulting from an increased mutation rate. This study provides an integrated method for assessing the cumulative population impacts of chronic contaminant exposure by studying both population genetic and evolutionary effects.  (+info)

The 2000 canine distemper epidemic in Caspian seals (Phoca caspica): pathology and analysis of contributory factors. (8/24)

More than 10,000 Caspian seals (Phoca caspica) were reported dead in the Caspian Sea during spring and summer 2000. We performed necropsies and extensive laboratory analyses on 18 seals, as well as examination of the pattern of strandings and variation in weather in recent years, to identify the cause of mortality and potential contributory factors. The monthly stranding rate in 2000 was up to 2.8 times the historic mean. It was preceded by an unusually mild winter, as observed before in mass mortality events of pinnipeds. The primary diagnosis in 11 of 13 seals was canine distemper, characterized by broncho-interstitial pneumonia, lymphocytic necrosis and depletion in lymphoid organs, and the presence of typical intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies in multiple epithelia. Canine distemper virus infection was confirmed by phylogenetic analysis of reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction products. Organochlorine and zinc concentrations in tissues of seals with canine distemper were comparable to those of Caspian seals in previous years. Concurrent bacterial infections that may have contributed to the mortality of the seals included Bordetella bronchiseptica (4/8 seals), Streptococcus phocae (3/8), Salmonella dublin (1/8), and S. choleraesuis (1/8). A newly identified bacterium, Corynebacterium caspium, was associated with balanoposthitis in one seal. Several infectious and parasitic organisms, including poxvirus, Atopobacter phocae, Eimeria- and Sarcocystis-like organisms, and Halarachne sp. were identified in Caspian seals for the first time.  (+info)

Azerbaijan - a nation with a majority-Turkic and majority-Shia Muslim population - was briefly independent (from 1918 to 1920) following the collapse of the Russian Empire; it was subsequently incorporated into the Soviet Union for seven decades. Azerbaijan has yet to resolve its conflict with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh, a primarily ethnic Armenian-populated region that Moscow recognized in 1923 as an autonomous republic within Soviet Azerbaijan after Armenia and Azerbaijan disputed the territorys status. Armenia and Azerbaijan reignited their dispute over the area in 1988; the struggle escalated militarily after both countries attained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. By May 1994, when a cease-fire took hold, ethnic Armenian forces held not only Nagorno-Karabakh but also seven surrounding provinces in the territory of Azerbaijan. The OSCE Minsk Group, co-chaired by the US, France, and Russia, is the framework established to mediate a peaceful resolution of the conflict. ...

The conviction of Eynulla Fatullayev, the editor of Azerbaijans largest independent newspaper, for criminal libel and insult, underscores deteriorating press freedoms in that country, Human Rights Watch said today. On April 20, Yasamal District Court in Baku convicted Fatullayev, the outspoken editor-in-chief of the independent Realni Azerbaijan and Gundelik Azerbaijan newspapers, for having committed criminal libel and insult. The charges were based on an internet posting that the prosecution attributed to him, which blamed Azerbaijanis for a 1992 massacre in Nagorno-Karabakh. Fatullayev denied writing the posting, but was sentenced to 30 months in prison. The same day, unknown assailants attacked one of Fatullayevs colleagues at Realni Azerbaijan, Uzeyir Jafarov, who sustained serious injuries. Fatullayev is the fifth journalist to be imprisoned in Azerbaijan in the last 10 months. Fatullayevs prosecution was politically motivated, and he should be immediately released from ...
Since ancient times, Azerbaijan has been one of those regions of the world where there is a long history of involvement with oil. A chronology follows of some of the major developments as they occurred in Azerbaijan. 700-600 BC Oil was being extracted for use in everyday life, both for medicinal purposes and for heating and lighting in homes. Fuel oil was known for being transported from Absheron Peninsula (where Baku is located) to Iran, Iraq and India. 10th CENTURY. Wells were already being dug on the Absheron Peninsula. The average depth was about 10-12 meters. As oilmen in the region became more and more skillful, their expertise was sought after in other regions outside Azerbaijan. Two men, YusifAmirbek oglu and Nabi Safi oglu, were especially known for their abilities in well digging. 1270-1280. Marco Polo of Venice wrote about oil in Azerbaijan in his memoirs while traveling along the Ancient Silk Route. He mentioned a fountain of oil which discharged such a great quantity of oil that ...

One of the important reasons of emerging of the organized crime is the lack of control or complete absence of control over the public order by the corresponding governmental structures.. Azerbaijan is extremely worried that one of the center of the organized crime in Europe is in our territory, so-called Nagorno-Karabakh republic, which is absolutely uncontrolled not only by Azerbaijan authorities but also by the international institutions responsible for fight against the criminality.. The occupation of 20% of the territory of Azerbaijan by Armenian armed forces not only left 1 million Azerbaijani refugees homeless, not only caused enormous destruction of our cities, villages, graves of our ancestors, in one word destruction of all the infrastructure in the occupied territories by Armenian aggressors, but also created very good conditions for development of organized crime in the territory occupied by Armenia.. 1.The territory of so-called Nagorno-Karabakh republic is used for growing narcotic ...
Pope Francis will visit Azerbaijan and Georgia in the autumn, the Vatican said on 9 April, one day after combatants in Nagorno-Karabakh agreed to cease fighting that has killed dozens in the past week.. Azerbaijans military and Armenian-backed separatists were locked in shelling and artillery strikes for four days over the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region, stoking fears of all-out war.. The Vatican did not mention the conflict as it announced the trip scheduled from 30 September to 2 October.. There are very few Roman Catholics in either country. Azerbaijan is about 95% Muslim while over 80% of Georgians are Eastern Orthodox Christians. Azerbaijan is often described by analysts as the most secularist Muslim country..

It was out of Ardabil (ancient Artavilla) that the Safavid dynasty arose to renew the state of Persia and establish Shiism as the official religion of Iran. Around the same time, the population of what is now Azerbaijan and Iran were converted to Shiism,[34] and both nations remain the only nations in the world with a significantly Shia majority, with Iran having the largest Shia population by percentage, with the Republic of Azerbaijan having the second largest Shia population by percentage.[35][36]. After 1502, Azerbaijan became the chief bulwark and military base of the Safavids. It was the chief province from which the various Iranian empires would control their Caucasian provinces, all the way up to Dagestan in the early 19th century. In the meantime, between 1514 and 1603, the Ottomans sometimes occupied Tabriz and other parts of the province during their numerous wars with their Safavid ideological and political archrivals. The Safavid control was restored by Shah Abbas but during the ...
Not too many people have been infected with coronavirus COVID-19 in Azerbaijan, Trend reports on March 18 referring to the statement made during the discussions in the Institute of Biophysics of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS) dedicated to the situation related to coronavirus and the ways to protect against it.. It is possible to assume that this virus will be eradicated in Azerbaijan relatively quickly as a result of the radical measures taken by the country, the statement said..

The most recent results of Global Cancer Statistics indicated that gastrointestinal cancers, including gastric, colorectal, esophageal, and liver cancers, are among the most commonly diagnosed cancers worldwide. Previous reports from cancer registries in East Azerbaijan have shown that there is a high incidence of gastrointestinal cancer in this region, so we performed a trend analysis to determine the pattern of change over the last decade. In total, 12 years of cancer registry data were collected from different sources in East Azerbaijan, and a data quality check was performed to ensure clean data. Using the 2000 World Health Organization standard population, we then generated age-standardized incidence rates (ASRs) for different cancers, and for each year from 1383 to 1394 of the Persian calendar (i.e., 19 March 2004 to 20 March 2015). Annual percent changes (APCs) and Average annual percent changes (AAPCs) in the ASRs for esophageal, gastric, small intestine, colorectal, anal, liver, gallbladder,
Armenians are constantly on the ball for possible attacks from implacable foe Azerbaijan, but who would have expected an enemy infiltration so unspeakably vile in nature? Garlic, grown on Azerbaijans hostile soil, apparently has found a way to penetrate the two countries sealed border, and then had the effrontery to appear on vegetable stands in the Armenian capital, Yerevan. Respected historian Samvel Karapetian was grocery shopping in a Yerevan supermarket, Hayastan, when he chanced upon packets of the bulbous, pungent emissaries from Azerbaijan, the very country that fought a long and bloody war with Armenia over the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region. Since the 1988-1994 war, anything Azerbaijani has been mostly seen in Armenia as unspeakably heinous, and vice versa.. A concerned citizen, Karapetian sounded the alarm, and reporters hurried to the scene. Garlic of the company based on [President Heydar] Aliyev Street in Baku is gleefully sold in… an Armenian supermarket, the puzzled ...
Alas, its hardly news anymore that activists are handed long prison sentences in Azerbaijan. This has been a mainstay in the governments two-year effort to silence its critics.. But when it happens two days before the Council of Europes Secretary General visits Baku, and nine days before the country officially takes over the rotating chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, everyone should sit up and take notice how justice is taking another blow in Azerbaijan.. In a politically-motivated trial, Bakus Grave Crimes Court convicted eight youth activists today of organizing mass disorders and illegal drugs and weapons possession, and sentenced them to prison terms ranging from six to eight years. Seven of them: Bakhtiyar Guliyev, Shahin Novruzlu, Mahammad Azizov, Rashad Hasanov, Uzeyir Mammadli, Rashadat Akhundov, and Zaur Gurbanli are from the youth opposition movement NIDA [exclamation mark in Azeri], which was founded in 2010 and campaigns for democratic reforms and the rule of law in ...
Today it became known that the EBRD is going to make a final decision on October 18 to allocate a tranche for the Transanatolsky Pipeline (TANAP) project or the Southern Gas Corridor. Its political and economic goal is multi-vector - increasing the security of gas supplies to Europe, reducing the share of Russia as a gas supplier and excluding Ukraine as a gas transit.. It should be noted that 51% of shares of Southern Gas Corridor belong to the government of Azerbaijan.. As for the project participants and their goals - an exclusive comment by Alexander Asafov, a political scientist:. The situation around Azerbaijans claims to serious participation in the global gas market has been developing for several days and has not reached its decisive phase.

In the context of Bakus financial ...
Like most republics of the Soviet Union who experienced rapid development of all spheres of economics and human activity which has led to an increasingly negative impact on the environment, including the inefficient usage of natural resources. As can be seen in many other countries, Azerbaijan is interested in finding solutions to the problems regarding environmental protection and rational utilization of natural resources. In support of Azerbaijans environmental protection goals, a number of important laws, legal documents and state programs, all of which conform to European law requirements, have been developed and approved in order to improve the ecological situation in the country. However, problems arose as these precautionary laws have not been as effective as they were meant to be. Transparency has been a consistent issue in Azerbaijan as NGOs who are given legal authority to collect data from the oil refineries are often blocked or dismissed, and their information comes unofficially. ...
Downloadable! The paper investigates the impact of the real exchange rate on non-oil exports in Azerbaijan by applying Vector Error Correction Model. The estimation results suggest that real exchange rate of manat has negative impact on non-oil export performance while non-oil GDP affects positively in the long- and short-run. Error correction term indicates that short-run fluctuation can be adjusted into long-run equilibrium relationship. Based on findings of the study can be concluded that appreciating real exchange rate is one of major factors that impede non-oil export growth. Since promotion of non-oil export is one of the urgent issues of the strategic economic policy of Azerbaijan Republic then findings of the study may be useful for policymakers.

Prior to the decline in global oil prices since 2014, Azerbaijans high economic growth was attributable to rising energy exports and to some non-export sectors. Oil exports through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline, the Baku-Novorossiysk, and the Baku-Supsa Pipelines remain the main economic driver, but efforts to boost Azerbaijans gas production are underway. The expected completion of the geopolitically important Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) between Azerbaijan and Europe will open up another source of revenue from gas exports. First gas to Turkey through the SGC is expected in 2018 with project completion expected by 2020-21.. Declining oil prices caused a 3.1% contraction in GDP in 2016, and a 0.8% decline in 2017, highlighted by a sharp reduction in the construction sector. The economic decline was accompanied by higher inflation, a weakened banking sector, and two sharp currency devaluations in 2015. Azerbaijans financial sector continued to struggle. In May 2017, Baku allowed the majority ...

In considering the long-term prospects for a new war in Nagorno Karabakh, the key factor is of course Azerbaijans growing wealth, especially relative to Armenias stangnancy. But that could lead to two opposing results: either Azerbaijan would not want to risk damaging its vibrant economy by starting a war, or its oil-funded military will be so much stronger than Armenias that trying to retake Karabakh would be inevitable. Azerbaijan scholar and consultant Svante Cornell has written a new book on the country, Azerbaijan Since Independence, which he introduced at an event yesterday in DC. And the part that was most interesting to me was that he came down very much on the side of war being inevitable.. His argument: that while an Azerbaijan invasion of Karabakh would elicit international condemnation, it would probably be short-lived and not amount to much, comparable to what happened with Croatia when it ethnically cleansed the Serb-dominated eastern part of the country in the 1990s. (UPDATE: I ...

YEREVAN-A mechanism for operative ties has been established between the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan, according to Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan who told reporters on Thursday that since a brief conversation with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev the system has been effective.. Pashinyan and Aliyev held a discussion in Dushanbe, Tajikistan earlier this month when the two were attending a summit of CIS leaders. According to Pashinyan, he and Aliyev agreed to de-escalate tension along the Armenia-Azerbaijan and Artsakh-Azerbaijan borders.. Based on our agreement, a reliable and operative connection has been established with the Azerbaijani side and we can say that any information can be conveyed to the Azerbaijani President and from their side to me within half an hour, Pashinyan told reporters Thursday, explaining that the communication between the two leaders takes place on an as needed basis.. Pashinyan also attributed the recent relative calm on the borders to his ...
We are therefore calling out to the global conservation community for support to help stop the usage of white phosphorus munitions before they cause an environmental disaster and regional ecocide.

The Armenian sample of Wells et al. (2001) has a much lower frequency of F(xK) than the samples of Weale et al. (2001), with only 18/47 = 0.3830 haplogroup F(xK) in the data of Wells et al. compared to 369/734 = 0.5027 F(xK) in the data of Weale et al. The low frequency of haplogroup F(xK) in the Armenian sample of Wells et al. makes me suspect that the sample might have been taken from Syunik, the most southerly province of the independent state of Armenia, or from Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian-dominated enclave surrounded by the Republic of Azerbaijan. The samples of Weale et al. taken from Syunik and Karabakh had the highest frequencies of P(xR1a) and the lowest frequencies of Y(xA, DE, K) among all Armenian subpopulations. Actually, the Armenians of Syunik and Karabakh speak the same Karabakh dialect of the Armenian language, named after the historical region of Karabakh, which includes the province of Syunik as well as modern Nagorno-Karabakh. Perhaps the Karabakh dialect speakers in ...
UNCLAS SECTION 01 OF 05 GENEVA 002654 SIPDIS BUDAPEST FOR OSCE, USEU FOR MEZNAR E.O. 12958: N/A TAGS: PREF, PHUM, SMIG, XG, CIS SUBJECT: COMMONWEALTH OF INDEPENDENT STATES CONFERENCE PROCESS ENDS 1. (U) SUMMARY. An October 10 meeting in Geneva marked the end of the decade-long CIS Conference Process, originally created to address problems of refugees and displaced persons -- as well as statelessness -- arising out of the break up of the Soviet Union. Although a final conference statement was endorsed by all and there was a perceived need for a follow-on mechanism, no decision was made on new structures to continue the dialogue on migration and refugee issues. Two distinct visions emerged: (1) Belarus, proposal for a CIS dialogue managed by a permanent secretariat in Minsk that would be partially funded by Russia; and (2) Moldovas proposal for sub-regional ad hoc meetings, as needed (with Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldova forming one nucleus). A technical meeting will be scheduled in ...
During the past decade, African swine fever (ASF) has spread from the Caucasus region to eastern European Union countries affecting domestic pig and wild boar populations. In order to avert ASF spread, mitigation measures targeting both populations have been established. However, despite these efforts, ASF has been reported in thirteen different countries (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Moldova, Czech Republic, and Romania). In the absence of an effective vaccine or treatment to ASF, introduction and spread of ASF onto domestic pig farms can only be prevented by strict compliance to control measures. This study systematically reviewed available measures to prevent the spread of ASF in the EU domestic pig sector distinguishing between commercial, non-commercial, and outdoor farms. The search was performed in PubMed and using a common browser. A total of 52 documents were selected for the final review process, which included

Füle has argued that enlargement is the most important transformation instrument the EU has and attributes the difficult reforms that brought about Central and Southeastern Europes political and economic transformations to the fact that they were tak[ing[ place within the wider enlargement strategy.[4] He has been working hard to bring six of the EUs neighbors, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, under its wing, but the anticipated summit in Vilnius, Lithuania in November 2013 only saw Georgia and Moldova initial association agreements, with Ukraines last-minute cold feet a major disappointment.[5][6] On July 18, 2014, Füle was present to hear the Parliament of Georgia unanimously vote (123-0, 27 abstained) to ratify its association agreement. Before the vote, Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili told Füle his country had formulated a Georgia 2020 social-democratic development strategy, aimed at easing European integration.[7] On Turkeys accession, Füle is ...

Whilst birding the patch on 11 November I saw the Red-tailed Wheatear that Phil had found at the weekend. I was busy with the family so unable to make it birding for the last few days so this was my first opportunity to look for the bird. Luckily it was still on the same boulders, an area where it or another bird has spent the last two winters. As the nights are drawing in as winter approaches the light is not good for photography in the evening any more with the below images the best I could manage. Hopefully the bird wil stick around all winter as in the last two years as they are great little birds to sit and watch. The Red-tailed Wheatear Oenanthe chrysopygia is a scarce winter visitor to the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia with birds occurring from late September until early April, especially in the vicinity of jebals, other rocky outcrops, dry scrub areas and semi-desert. It breeds in an area from north-east Turkey through Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and western ...
