Facts in Brief
The Republic of Armenia lies in the western South Caucasus, on Turkey's north-eastern border. For much of its history Armenia has been under foreign rule. In the early 20th century some 1.5m. Armenians were estimated to have perished as a result of Turkish persecution. In 1920 a Soviet Republic of Armenia was founded that subsequently became a full union republic of the USSR. In 1991 Armenia seceded from the USSR. After independence hostilities with Azerbaijan over the disputed enclave of Nagornyi Karabakh escalated, and this conflict remained unresolved in the early 21st century. Armenia's capital is Yerevan. The official language is Armenian.
