Once one of the major regional powers today's Republic of Armenia is a tiny stripe of land squeezed between Turkey, Azerbaijan, Iran and Georgia. It was in the 20th century when Armenia twice had a chance to rise out of the ashes of World War one (1918) and out of the debris of the fallen USSR (1991) after more than 500 years of foreign domination. The first attempt to restore Armenian statehood in 1918 ended up with the collapse of 1920. The second attempt seems to be more productive in spite of the harsh legacy of the past that includes disputed borders, ethnic and religious prejudice and unclear political orientation.

 

The unresolved Karabakh crisis and the issue of Armenian genocide in Turkey (1918-1922) seem to be the major stumbling-block to the future of this small East-Mediterranean country, its freedom democracy and even existence.
