The states of the Caucasus region have different views regarding membership in a regional organization. Armenia and Georgia are favorably disposed, in principle, towards membership, but they have discrete reservations about their relationship with the CIS. Azerbaijan, on the other hand, anticipates its oil riches will allow it to return to its former golden days and has reservations about joining any regional organization. All the states of the Caucasus are suspicious of Moscows intentions towards the region. Commonwealth or Empire
