Confederation of Georgia and Azerbaijan is a cloud-castle
Hikmet Gajizade, the Azerbaijani political scientist, believes statements about possible forming of confederation of Georgia and Azerbaijan to be of sheer propagandistic character and not worthy of serious discussion - Regnum.
He reminded that in early 20th century Mamed Emin Rasulzade, a prominent statesman from Azerbaijan presented an idea of Caucasian Confederation. In 1918 it was even formed, but disintegrated soon. In the Soviet times, for a very short period of time a Caucasian Soviet Federative Social Republic existed, but for a very short period of time.
"As for the present-day idea of confederation, it's reasoned by Georgia's desire to use economic and other potentials of Azerbaijan," Gajidze said.
