Mother Of All Agreements In West Asia

Some of them are owned by women who are kept in bondage (as shown by a study of society that implies by content). They were used in trades such as fabric manufacturing and usually came with children. The nickname lawiaiai, “prisoners,” who are associated with some of them, identifies their origin. Some are ethnic names. In particular, one, aswiai, identifies “Asian women.” [27] Perhaps they were captured in Asia, but some others, Milatiai, appear to have been from Milet, a Greek colony that would not have been invaded by the Greeks for slaves. Chadwick suggests that the names record the places where these foreign women were purchased. [28] The name is also in the singular, Aswia, which refers to both the name of a country and a female of it. There`s a male form, Aswios. This Aswia seems to have been a remnant of a region known to the Hittites as Lydia-centered Assuwa, or “Roman Asia”. This name, Assuwa, was proposed as the origin for the name of the continent “Asia”.

[29] The Assuwa League was a federation of states in Western Anatolia, defeated by the Hittiten under Tudhaliya I around 1400 BC. On 9 May 2008, Hezbollah and Amal troops, triggered by a government statement that Hezbollah`s communications network was illegal, conquered western Beirut,[97] leading to the conflict in Lebanon in 2008. [98] The Lebanese government condemned the violence as an attempted coup. [99] At least 62 people died in the resulting clashes between pro-government militias and opposition militias. [100] On 21 May 2008, the signing of the Doha Agreement ended the fighting. [97] [100] As part of the agreement that ended 18 months of political paralysis,[101] Michel Suleiman became president and a government of national unity was formed, which vetoed the opposition. [97] The agreement was a victory for the opposition forces, as the government yielded to all its main demands. [100] Asia is the largest continent in the world. It covers 9% of the total area of the planet (or 30% of its land surface) and has the longest coastline with 62,800 kilometers. Asia is generally defined as the four-fifths eastern of Eurasia. It is located east of the Suez Canal and the Ural Mountains and south of the Caucasus Mountain (or kuma-Manych-Senke), as well as the Caspian and Black Sea. [7] [44] It adjoins the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Indian Ocean to the south and the Arctic Ocean to the north.

Asia is divided into 49 countries, five of which (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkey) are transcontinental countries, some of which are located in Europe. Geographically, Russia is partly in Asia, but it is considered a European nation, both culturally and politically.
