Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic (Azerbaijani: Naxçıvan Muxtar Respublikası) is an exclave of Azerbaijan.
In 1924, Nakhichevan obtained the status of an Autonomous Republic as a concession on the part of Stalin to the newly founded Turkish Republic under Kemal Atatürk, whom at the time was seen as a potential ally.
Nakhichevan's parliament in the late 1990's passed a resolution calling upon Azerbaijan to recognize the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
