Karki (also Kərki, Kiarki, Kyarki) or Tigranashen is de jure an exclave of Azerbaijan's Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. Since the Nagorno-Karabakh War it has been controlled de facto by Armenia since May 1992, which administers it as part of Ararat Province. The main highway connecting northern Armenia with southern Armenia passes right by this village. Today, the village is mostly inhabited by Armenians both local and refugees from Azerbaijan. It has been renamed Tigranashen by the Armenian government, and its size is about 19 square kilometers.
