Israeli President Shimon Peres held a diplomatic working meeting on April 22nd with Azerbaijan FM Elmar Mammadyarov to discuss strengthening strategic relations between Azerbaijan and Israel. This is a historical first visit by an Azerbaijan FM in Israel.

PM Peres praised Azerbaijan for playing a key role in countering the influence of neighbouring Iran in the region, stressing that the small Muslim country has taken a “clear stand” against war and terrorism. Calling Azerbaijan’s geographic location “unique,” Peres said Tel Aviv considers Azerbaijan an important ally in the region.

Israel and Azerbaijan's diplomatic relationship began in 1992 when Azerbaijan separated from the communist Soviet Union, and appears to be rapidly building on a number of fronts, and not only because of their similar stances via Iran.

Reuters reports that Azerbaijan's government has signed a $1.6 billion arms trade deal with Israel, and that dozens of Israeli drones were included in the agreement. The international news agency has also reported that Israel is interested in Azerbaijan’s oil reserves.

This strategic meeting comes at a time when tension continues to mount between Israel and Iran over Iran's alleged nuclear program.

In meetings and press conferences, everyone is talking about Syria and discussing possible solutions to the ongoing crisis. Egyptian President Morsi, along with Foreign Minister Kamel Amr, held talks with the Iranian, Turkish and French Foreign Ministers, touching on the increasing number of refugees, the fate of Bashar Al Assad and the "contact group," consisting of Egypt, Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia who have both influence and interest in the outcome of the crisis in Syria. Talks also gravitated toward the recent film on youtube that insulted the Prophet Mohammed and sparked massive protests among enraged Muslim communities.

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi met in Cairo on Monday evening, September 17, over the Syrian crisis.

The meeting was part of the “contact group” initiative called for by Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi and composed of Egypt, Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia.

The three Foreign Ministers agreed to continue their talks in New York on the sidelines of the 67th session of the UN General Assembly that will open on September 18 until September 28.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr:
“Today, we discussed a group of ideas and principles generally that are supposed to contribute to reaching a solution for the tragic situation in Syria and putting an end to the bloodshed. We agreed to continue our consultations and we decided to hold our next meeting in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meetings.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (English) – Turkish FM Ahmet Davutoglu:
“We have decided to come together to consult and to try to develop a common perspective for the future of our region as well as for the future of Syria, of course as this is the issue. What we observed today is that there are certain principles we agree on, but there are certain differences in opinions as you may expect. And we also have an ultimate objective to have a strong Syria.”

Egypt’s Foreign Minister said that Saudi Arabia, which attended the preliminary activities, missed the meeting due to other commitments, while analysts believe that Saudi Arabia might have refrained due to disagreement with Iran that supports the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi:
“The common principles are more than the disagreements. Everyone stressed the necessity to find a peaceful solution, especially the influential countries in the region, Egypt, Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia. They have a big role and they could come up with a recommendation that we hope in the end will give a satisfactory result to all.”

Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia call the Syrian regime to step down while Iran is Al-Assad’s main ally and it accuses certain courtiers such as Saudi Arabia and Turkey of attempting to assist those who want to topple the Syrian regime.

Arab Foreign Ministers met in Cairo on Saturday, March 10, in presence of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the Syrian crisis, amid Arab and Western efforts to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his regime to end the violence going on for almost a year now.

The Arab League talks come as former UN chief Kofi Annan, who has been newly appointed as the UN-Arab League special envoy to Syria, headed to Damascus for urgent talks with Assad.

While Qatari Foreign Minister Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani criticized Russia and China for vetoing a UN resolution against Syrian regime and called for Arab - foreign troops in Syria, Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby called on the Syrian regime to respond to the Arab and international calls to put an end to the crisis.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Qatari Foreign Minister Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani:
"It's time to act according to the recommendation calling for sending Arab-international troops to Syria. We have to deliver a message to the Syrian regime that we and the world have run out of patience, and the time of silence to its (the regime's) practices is over."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
"We call the Syrian leadership to listen to the voice of uprising people, respond to their fair demands and take the steps necessitated by the developments of the situation. We also hope that the Syrian government and all forms of opposition will comply with the efforts of the Arab League and the United Nations to make the mission of the mission of the joint UN-AL envoy Kofi Annan successful."

For his part, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov stressed that his country does not protect a certain regime, but it protects the international law that prevents foreign interference in any country's domestic affairs, showing agreement that the immediate joint goal is to end the ongoing violence in Syria.

SOUNDBITE 3 (English) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov:
"(We have been) sticking to the international law, the charter of the United Nations and the principles of respect to the sovereignty territorial integrity and non-interference in domestic affairs of states, not to mention military interference. We're not protecting any regimes. We protect international law. And I believe that we all agree when we talk on Syria that the immediate task now is to end violence."

UN estimates that nearly 8,500 Syrians were killed since the anti-regime uprising erupted mid-March, 2011.

Arab League efforts have failed so far to resolve the issue through urging political reform and dialogue between the Syrian regime and opposition.
