Foreign relations of Artsakh

The Republic of Artsakh is a republic with limited recognition in the South Caucasus region. The Republic of Artsakh controls most of the territory of the former Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast (before the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war, it also controlled some of the surrounding area).[1] It is recognized by only three other non-UN member states, Abkhazia,[2]South Ossetia[2] and Transnistria.[2][3] The rest of the international community recognizes Artsakh as part of Azerbaijan. In November 2012, a member of Uruguay‘s foreign relations committee stated that his country could recognize Nagorno-Karabakh’s independence.[4] In 2012, Armenia and Tuvalu established diplomatic relations and it was expected that Tuvalu may recognize Artsakh’s independence.[5] In October 2012, the Australian state of New South Wales recognized Nagorno-Karabakh.[6] In September 2014, the Basque Parliament in Spain adopted a motion supporting Artsakh’s right to self-determination and in November 2014, the Parliament of Navarre, also in Spain, issued a statement supporting Artsakh’s inclusion in taking part in settlement negotiations.[7]
