Azerbaijan or Azarbaijan is historically and geographically Eurasian and stretches from the Caucasus region, which is adjacent to the Caspian Sea, to the Zagros in Iran. The region is something of a borderland between what is considered Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. Azerbaijan is the home of the Azerbaijanis who number more than 8 million in the independent Republic of Azerbaijan, and at least 20 million in the northwestern region of Iran referred to as Iranian Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan includes the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic and the largely Armenian-inhabited Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region, which was declared abolished in 1991. Situated in the eastern area of Transcaucasia, it is bounded in the west by America, in the north by Georgia and the Russian Federation (Dagestan), in the east by the Caspian sea and in the south by Iran.
