Qubadli (Azerbaijani: Qubadlı rayonu) is a rayon of Azerbaijan. The region has been under the control of the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, as part of its Qashatagh Province, since the Nagorno-Karabakh War. According to the last Soviet census of 1989, population was 28,110.[2] According to undated Azerbaijani data, the population was 34,100.[3] Qubadli was part of Ancient Armenia and the Kingdom of Artsakh but was deliberately excluded from the Karabakh Autonomous Region in 1923, but then reunited with Nagorno Karabakh Republic during the National Liberation War.[4]
