The “European Political Community” summit was held in Prague on October 6, with the participation of 44 countries, which was established at the suggestion of French President Emmanuel Macron. 

The European Political Union, which was established at Macron’s proposal and whose first summit was held in Prague, is probably the most ambitious step of Macron’s political career. Many compare this union to the “European Confederation” proposed by Mitterrand, one of the most important presidents in French history, right after the end of the Cold War. 

Known for his pan-Europeanism, Mitterrand wanted to reduce the influence of the United States on the continent by gathering the countries that gained independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union around Europe. But Mitterrand’s vision failed.

In addition to the European Union countries, countries that are not part of the European Union also participated in this summit. The heads of state of Azerbaijan, Armenia, Turkey, and France held discussions about the outcome of the peace process between Azerbaijan and Armenia. 

It should also be noted that Armenia and  Azerbaijan confirmed their loyalty to the Charter of the United Nations (UN) and  the Alma-Ata Declaration of 1991, which recognizes each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. Thus, both countries recognized each other’s territorial integrity. 

It is in Azerbaijan’s favour that the negotiations take place at present. Turkey-Russia rapprochement and Russia’s loss of power in Ukraine created a favourable situation for Azerbaijan. However, the Armenian side did not remain inactive during this period. He received the support of America, France and India. 

The Armenian side was waiting for the situation to change by extending the time of negotiations. 

We can say that the peace talks are speeding up, but it does not seem realistic that it will give quick results. The Russian factor will show itself here. It seems realistic that Russia will not be left out of the peace process. In addition, the presence of Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh is a leading factor in prolonging the peace talks.

There has been no peace in the South Caucasus for 30 years. The conflict between the West and Russia meets the interests of Azerbaijan. Russia’s exit from the Western energy market has significantly increased the strategic value of Azerbaijan as an alternative energy player in Europe. Azerbaijan also wants to speed up the signing of the peace agreement using this. 

There is a high probability that Armenia will deviate from the main goals during the peace process. This is due to its dependence on Russia. 

Depending on the geopolitical situation of the major players in the South Caucasus at the present moment, future processes will be shaped. Some, if not all, processes in politics occur spontaneously. Clashes in Iran, Russia, and Ukraine may also spread to other countries. We can mention that Serbia-Kosovo and Turkey-Greece conflicts may occur.
