The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is recognized only by other states with limited recognition: Abkhazia,[1] South Ossetia[1] and Transnistria.[1][2] In November 2012, a member of Uruguay's foreign relations committee stated that his country could recognize Nagorno-Karabakh's independence.[3]

The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is a member of one international organization: the Community for Democracy and Human Rights, also commonly known as the Commonwealth of Unrecognized States, or less commonly as CIS-2 (Содружество непризнанных государств, СНГ-2). In 2012 the Parliament of New South Wales, an Australian state, called upon the Australian government to recognise Nagorno-Karabakh.[4] In May 2012, the Rhode Island House of Representatives in the United States passed a resolution calling on President Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress to recognize Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. On August 2012, the Massachusetts House of Representatives passed a similar resolution.[5] In April 2013, the Maine House of Representatives and Senate in the United States passed a resolution accepting Nagorno Karabakh's independence and urging President Barack Obama to also accept Nagorno Karabakh's independence.[6] In May 2013, the Louisiana State Senate in the United States passed a resolution accepting Nagorno Karabakh's independence and expressed support for the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic's efforts to develop as a free and independent nation.[7]
