    Karabakh settlement discussion

    Nagorny Karabakh, a region in Azerbaijan with a largely Armenian population, has been a source of conflict between the former Soviet republics since the late 1980s. The mountainous province has its own government and is de facto independent. The Madrid principles, put forward in November 2007, stipulate that the occupied Armenian territories surrounding the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic should be brought back under Azerbaijan's control. They also envisage a future referendum of self-determination in Karabakh.
