|Exclaves and Enclaves of Azerbaijan||
Until the Karabakh war Azerbaijan was no exception, but having in mind the main Karabakh issue these smaller territories have been almost forgotten.
There are five Azerbaijani exclaves in Armenia. Three of them are villages and the surrounding territories. The two remaining exclaves are tiny unnamed pieces of farmland. All these territories are currently under Armenian control.
There is a single Armenian village, Artzvashen
(Bashkend for the Azeris) located inside Azerbaijan (40° 38' 46 N,
45° 30' 56 E). The territory is inside Gadabay rayon (which administers
it), on the border with Tovuz rayon.
The territory's size is about 50 sq km and it used to be administered by
the Armenian province of Gegharkunik. The area is rich in mining resources,
including gold. The Armenian population has been replaced with Azeri settlers.
