Nagorno-Karabakh, a mountainous enclave of about 1,700 square miles, is 30 miles from the Armenian border. Ethnic Armenians are in control of the territory since major hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan subsided in 1994. The conflict over the region has claimed 30,000 lives since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The conflict dates back to Soviet-era when Stalin redrew the map of the region, giving Christian-majority Nagorno-Karabakh to Muslim-dominated Azerbaijani. The dispute over the area heated up in the early 1990s as the Soviet empire began to crumble, and region’s ethnic Armenians demanded reunion with the newly independent nation of Armenia.
