Azerbaijan - a nation with a Turkic and majority-Muslim population - was briefly independent from 1918 A.D. to 1920 A.D.; it regained its independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 A.D.. Despite a 1994 A.D. cease-fire, Azerbaijan has yet to resolve its conflict with Armenia over the Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh enclave (largely Armenian populated). Azerbaijani (Azeri) is the primary language; Lezgi, Russian, and Armenian are also spoken.
