Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has joined as an “honored guest” a gathering of leaders of the five Central Asian countries.

A series of demonstrative anti-Russian statements, and the hosting of an unprecedented military exercise with U.S. troops, has raised speculation that Armenia’s slow drift away from Russia may be reaching a breaking point.

Armenia’s foreign minister on September 13 said his country has received “new proposals” on a potential peace deal from bitter rival Baku, hours after his Azerbaijani counterpart said Baku was prepared to allow the Red Cross to transport humanitarian aid into Nagorno-Karabakh on a regular basis.

Officials in the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh said a Russian truck carrying humanitarian aid arrived on September 12 in the region via territory controlled by Azerbaijan, the first time such a crossing has been allowed in more than three decades.
