There have been regular warnings since the 1994 ceasefire about the prospect of a renewal of the 1992–94 war between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian-populated region of Azerbaijan (see figure 6.3). In 2011 several observers noted particular pressures in the two countries that could push them into war in the near future.1 Armenia and Azerbaijan have both identified the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict as a key national security priority.2 While both sides stress a commitment to a peaceful resolution of the conflict, each accuses the other of violating the 1990 Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE Treaty) and of pushing them into an arms race.3 In military parades held in 2011 both states displayed new and previously unseen military equipment in obvious shows of strength.4
