President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he would “straighten out” the South Caucasus operating in the Nagorno-Karbakh region between Armenia and Azerbaijan, adding that the conflict would be “easier” than “peace” in the Middle East.

Trump responded to several supporters at a rally in Londonberry, New Hampshire on Sunday afternoon, holding an Armenian flag and shouting “I love you” as he spoke on stage. Former Vice President Joe Biden last week accused Trump of being lethal to the region in Moscow and indifferent to the sealing leadership. Biden said Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are “coddling” Turkey, and warned Iran to stay away from military battles that have caused hundreds of civilian casualties – since late September.

Trump highlighted that he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize three times, including Israel and the United Arab Emirates in his foreign policy. He said that he is a hard line to deal with the Serbia-Kosovo conflict and he should be given the Nobel for his actions in Syria.

“Armenia. You know Armenia? We are working on that, you know, we are working on it. We did it with Kosovo and Serbia, do you believe that I got three nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize , can you believe it?” Trump told several people holding the Armenian flag at the halt of the New Hampshire campaign.

“Armenia, it is related to Serbia, we had Serbia-Kosovo, we had this deal and I said wait a minute these people are killing themselves, they have been killing each other for years and years and we have their Working together unrelated, ”Trump said.

Trump said he personally facilitated “peace in the Middle East” and changed Israel-Palestine deals, claiming that he sends $ 750 million every year to Palestinian groups that shout ” Death to America, Death to Israel. ” The president told supporters of the rally that it would be comparatively “easier” to resolve the conflict in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karbakh.

“So now we have Armenia, look at the Armenians, they are incredible people. They are fighting like hell. And you know we are going to get something, thanks, you know the Armenians have a hard time Has gone, ”Trump said. “But I saw, actually I was in Ohio yesterday and we had a tremendous group of Armenians with the flag and the whole thing. The problems they had, with death and fighting, we’re going to get that. Be straightforward.” Gone. It’s going to be, I say, an easy one. Go back and tell your people. Go back and tell your people, we’ll straighten it out. ”

Under the Organization of Collective Security Treaty, Russia is obliged to protect Armenia from attack in the region. But troops of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps have deployed Zolafa and Khoda Afrin on Iran’s northern border in an unconfirmed response to the Nagorn-Karbakh battle.

“Inexually, the Trump administration has been largely dysfunctional and disintegrated … even when the region goes up in flames,” said Trump, the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, last week. Joined in criticizing Trump for “ignoring”.

The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) tweeted a video of Trump’s comments on Sunday, urging him to “take action” immediately. After talking often about the action on North America politicians, but nothing, the responses were less optimistic.

Several former NATO officials and Middle East-Europe business leaders have called for the Trump administration and other Western powers to step in and de-escalate all military action in the Nagorno-Karbakh region.

“Georgia’s progress toward Western values ​​and strong support for NATO in Afghanistan is a witness to our investment. Now Georgia is ready to facilitate the resolution of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. Western leaders seriously consider this exaggeration and at a credible price Must consider. The regional country made pioneering efforts to resolve the conflict, “wrote Gen. Philip Breidlov, a retired 4-Star General of the US Air Force and former NATO Supreme Commander in Europe, pleading for intervention.

At a New Hampshire rally, Trump said, “You will end peacefully in the Middle East for nothing,” highlighting the UAE-Israel trade agreement earlier this year. “I should give him the Nobel Prize for what I did in Syria.”
