    Default Nagorno-Karbakh Republic

    This tiny republic in the very mountainous region of South Caucasus, declared its independence at the break up of the Soviet Union as it did not wish anymore to live under an oppressive Azeri government. A long bitter war was fought, but in the end the Karabakh Armenians, outnumbered, out-gunned, were able to decimate the bigger Azeri army which had support from various groups such as Islamic Mujahdeen from Afghanistan and Chechen Islamic groups.

    STEPANAKERT. The Nagorno-Karabakh Republics (NKR) Declaration of Independence is not contrary to the provisions of International Law, stated University of Hamburg Professor, Doctor of Law Otto Luchterhand, during the international symposium, entitled 20th Anniversary of NKR Independence: Realities and Prospects, which is underway in NKR capital Stepanakert.

    Presenting a comparative and legal analysis of NKRs independence, the Professor noted that the situation of Karabakh is more similar to that of Kosovo, as Karabakh, just like Kosovo, is in Europe. Otto Luchterhand also compared the two cases.

    As per the German professor, the UN Court had decided that Kosovo was not breaching International Law by adopting its declaration of independence, and based on this, Otto Luchterhand pointed to the similarities and he also gave precedents whereby in Karabakhs case the right for the self-determination of nations does not conflict with, and is sometimes preeminent to, the principle of territorial integrity.

    NKRs Declaration of Independence is not contrary to the provisions of International Law. If UN Security Council recognizes Kosovo, it is obligated to also recognize Nagorno Karabakh, Otto Luchterhand stated, and he called upon NKRs officials to propagate this fact more actively.

    de facto independent, unrecognised Republic. Though it has all the functions of an independent country.

    Nice pictures, it looks very unspoilt. The Muslims would no doubt convert it if they could, failing that they'd try to rid it of Armenians.

    An unrecognised country sounds like a strange place to go on holiday though. I'm surprised they didn't just go to Armenia proper.
    It must be quite a nice change of scenery though, travelling to a quiet Christian region of the Middle East.

    Yellow parts are Azerbaijani territory and it`s quite obvious that who is occupying/invaded where, just by looking at this picture.

    Also the southern part of Armenia which cuts Azerbaijan to two pieces and bordering with Iran is absurd as it can be. Iran`s northwestern territory also stands like a barrier between Azerbaijan and Turkey. I don't think there is any other place in the world with quite absurd borders as this.

    Please be more specific on who's occupying what. If you are suggesting lands like Syunik or Naxijevan is historical Azeri land please go troll another thread.

    As for the borders, yes that's what happens in a tumultous region, with many wars, and border redrawings by eager Bolsheviks.

    It looks like a very beautiful country. The whole Caucasus region is really a treasure that mostly not understood by most of the world.
