You can read this article in German: LINK.

Turkey and Azerbaijan are presenting a united front against a potential enemy in the face of Iran.

Ankara and Baku announced that they would hold a joint military exercise near the border with the Islamic Republic between October 5th and October 8th.

Titled “Unshakable Brotherhood,” the drills are organized to “develop friendship, cooperation and coordination between the Turkish and Azerbaijani Land Forces.”

Prior to these exercises in Nakhichevan, joint military exercises with Georgian, Azerbaijani and Turkish servicemen “Eternity-2021” were launched in Georgia on October 4th.

These are all an attempt to show force before Iran, as it held large-scale military exercises along the border with Azerbaijan in the previous days.

Tehran meanwhile released a series of hype videos, mostly from its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) showcasing the capabilities it was deploying along the border.

Two days earlier, the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Defense Force (IRIADF) unveiled a new tactical radar and an air-defense simulator.

These improvements are significant, as Azerbaijan, as well as Turkey employ a large number of UAVs in their military operations. In the event of hostilities, they need to be countered in order to avoid a repeat of the Armenia-Azerbaijani war for Nagorno Karabakh. Tehran is deeply concerned of the strengthening of the Baku’s military cooperation with Tel Aviv, fearing the deployment of Israeli Harop UAVs in the border regions.

One of the videos demonstrates about 4,000 IRGC speed boats that were deployed in the port of Astara on the Caspian Sea that could quickly reach the Azerbaijani oil facilities in the Caspian Sea. Such a reinforcement could play a strategic role in case of a direct confrontation.

Tehran will likely not openly oppose Turkey and Azerbaijan’s attempt at “two states – one nation”, but it will evidently also not support it. This is an issue for Iran, as up to 30 million ethnic Azerbaijanis live in its north-western region, so-called Iranian Azerbaijan, compared to the entire population of its neighbor that sits at 10 million. A realization of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s plan of a unified Turkic world directly threatens Iran’s livelihood.

Geographically, a big part of Ankara and Baku’s effort is to organize a direct transport corridor to the Caspian Sea and further to Central Asia.

Armenia’s Syunik region separates Azerbaijan’s mainland from the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic. In a recent visit of Armenia’s Foreign Minister to Tehran, it was underlined that Iran is against the removal of Armenian servicemen from the Syunik region and would be ready for a direct confrontation if it happens.

Iran is fortunate in this regard that it doesn’t need to fight, but simply show its forces and mark the red lines, as both Russia and China do not seem willing to allow “Great Turan” to turn into reality.

The developments are still in their early stages, but it is very apparent that both Ankara and Baku are making significant movements and are unwilling to stop their attempts. There are sure to be pushes towards shifts in a geopolitical landscape in the coming months and years.

Why the picture of Rouhani?

Icarus Tanović

They don’t have one of Raisi.


Iran is not alone, many regional & international allies. The turks on the other hand rely on western imbeciles who are content to replace erdogan at a moment’s notice…


Motherfuker we don’t rely on anybody. We can deal with any problem Iran is nothing for us nothing stupid mollahs just like mosquitos buzzing but nothing else. No go and f*** your mum scumbag

Icarus Tanović

Tou turks are as oeople says third world’s junk and trash. So shoul be treated as well. Don’t kid your self for a moment, Memet pasha that you have ANYTHING in common with Hungarians. They loath you.


Rouhani is not iran,s president anymore!

Icarus Tanović

He’s still in power couple of months, until Ibrahim Raisi takes power.

Rodney Loder.I guesd

Iran supported Azerbaijan in Nagorno Karabakh war one year ago last month, i was suprised with these recent hostile announcements coming from Turkey /Azerbaijan l put it downnto a expansionism Turkish policy similar to Turkish influence in Syrian affairs.

Never mind Russia will keep Turkry /Azerbaijan in line, damned pity the homosexual Sid Loder used my life with his vermin Freemason/jee maggots to break up the Soviet Union.

Icarus Tanović

Tou that call him stupid! You are an imbecile! Not just stupid.


Another factually false article published by southfront against Iran. Iran does not have 30 million “Azerbaijanis”. This Zionist created lie is so outrageously false both in terms of massively inflated numbers and the fake labeling of “Azerbaijani” that only hardcore anti-Iranian nations/media or extremely ignorant ones who don’t know any better would repeat it. A simple 5 minute google search from any official source including from Western sources tells you how many Azaris (Not Azerbaijanis) live inside Iran. Moreover the vast majority of these Azaris are Iranian nationalists who would fight on Iran’s side if a war were to break out against Baku.

I’m still puzzled as to why southfront repeatedly publishes anti-Iranian lies and Zionist created disinformation against Iran.


40.000000. Million Azerbaijanis turk living in south Azerbaijan. will be liberated from mullah dictator regime


Listen donkey Turk. Your Zionist masters who have taught you your fake artificial identity and this fake statistics about Iran are standing on their last legs in the region. They’re going to be gone but you’re going to remain in the region surrounded by Iran on all sides, an Iran which you have been insulting, lying about, and threatening all your life. I’ll tell you this one thing and I don’t care if you don’t want to believe me but before the Syrian war I was completely neutral in regards to Turkey, maybe I even had slightly positive views. During the war and subsequent to this I saw so many people from Turkey like you insulting, lying about, and threatening Iran that I have become completely radicalized to hate Turkey. There are millions of Iranians like myself who have gone through the same transformation. We have got you surrounded in the south in Syria, and in Iraq. You have hostile neighbors to your West, to your north, and to your east. Literally your only way out of a potential complete land blockade is through Georgia in the east, which could easily be blocked by Russia or Iran. Your fake artificial country is filled with 20,000,000 Iranic Kurds who unlike the 14,000,000 Azaris of Iran do not have strong allegiance to their state. If you think it is a good idea to continue on your current path then you deserve what’s coming to you and mark my words, you’re not going to like what’s coming to you.
