Pakistan Relations with Azerbaijan in 21st Century
AbstractThe Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan started after the collapse of USSR. Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognized part of Azerbaijan, but since the end of the war between the two countries in 1994, it has been governed by people of Armenian descent. Nagorno-Karabakh had the status of autonomy within Azerbaijan, but later the Azerbaijani parliament abolished this status and the territory was divided between several regions. The Kashmir problem also began after the end of British rule in the area and the establishment of India and Pakistan as sovereign nations. Kashmir also had status of autonomy till 2019 in the Indian constitution. India abolished the autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir, bringing the long-running territorial dispute between Pakistan and India back into the world's spotlight. India wants to create two union territories in former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir. Uprising in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh that resulted in war between Azerbaijan and Armenia bring the issue of Nagorno-Karabakh in the spotlight of world. Kashmir conflicts and conflict of Nagorno-Karabakh bring the people and leadership of Pakistan and Azerbaijan close to each other and this study has explained the newly developed nature of relations between Pakistan and Azerbaijan.
