Is the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic officially part of Azerbaijan? If so, isn't Turkey also a bordering country?

Yes it's an undisputed part of Azerbaijan. There's a mistake in description ("Armenia's"). Turkey is a bordering country

Also I'd ask for Karabakh, it's the main (noun) part of the name.
Aliyevs were on power long enough, could be a question. Or the city that has no connection to cannabis 😃
And after asking for the sea, you could ask for the capital's elevation rounded to 10 meters 😈

Could you accept Nagorny Karabakh, please? I've only ever heard it named like that, and it is an alternative transliteration.

Two comments: (1) Yes, as mentioned in previous comments, Nakhchivan belongs to Azerbaijan, not Armenia, and (2) "Nagorno" is from Russian for "mountainous", so when they use one local word to describe the place, it's "Karabakh". So maybe the clue should be "Nagorno _____" instead.

Yes, Nakhchivan is part of Azerbaijan. However, it is surrounded by other countries. That is what makes it an exclave.

Yes, but the problematic portion of the question reads Armenia's "Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic". The way it is stated makes it seem as though the territory is owned by Armenia.

Lol I accidentally wrote "Gasparov" instead of "Kasparov" and got the Oil answer because it accepted "Gas."

Interestingly judo, taekwondo and boxing make up 15 of their other 20 medals. Note to self, don't pick a fight with an Azerbaijani.

It says "Armenia's 'Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic'" which makes it seem like the land is part of Armenia, when in reality it is an exclave of Azerbaijan. The question should be reworded to say "Azerbaijan's 'Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic'".
