Apart from the Armenian diaspora structures in the United States and their circle of influence, both the US government and the American business community are interested in strengthening cooperation with Azerbaijan in the energy, trade and military-technical sectors. Despite the verbal support of the States for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Armenia, the upper echelons of the US and Azerbaijani authorities are considering the possibility of selling and joint production of weapons.
It is widely believed in Washington that it is impossible to implement serious projects in the Caucasus without the participation of Turkey and Azerbaijan. Therefore, the American establishment openly declares that the interests of these countries are fully taken into account. In addition, the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan has begun, which will take about six months. During this period, Washington especially needs Azerbaijan.
While the US is puzzled by the goal of preventing the completion of the Nord Stream 2 project, Azerbaijan is ready to be an instrument of US influence on the energy situation in the region. The main route through which the US transports Azerbaijani oil is the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) MNP. During the 2020 war, Turkey paid special attention to the protection of this pipeline. However, if Armenia wanted to strike the pipe, it would have easily done it 20 years ago. A few artillery strikes and she wouldn't exist.
Since the collapse of the USSR, Armenia, unfortunately, has allowed Azerbaijan to build a pipeline, sell oil and gas, earn billions of dollars and use this money to buy weapons, using them against the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The fact that Joe Biden approved the provision of military assistance to Azerbaijan underlines the lack of interest of the United States to provide real assistance to Armenia in the fight against the aggressor. It is not surprising that Ilham Aliyev is generous with compliments and expresses special gratitude to Joe Biden.
