Over at Blogrel, Katy has sparked a debate about whether Nagorno Karabagh is really a state or not:
Why do I ask? Well, if NK doesnt become part of Armenia and ends up being independent, it will act as a solo state. Itll need to have legitimate currency, set up systems and institutions more than it has today thoughts? Is NK a state? Could it be a state? If it isnt a state, what would it have to do to be a state? No battles here, but positive discussion
According to the Montevideo Convention, it seems that NK (as it’s affectionately known) should be a state. But, of course, in the real world it’s not.
