    Well, its raining out so I have redrawn the map and given Tillerson some ideas.

    NK and other territories to be divided between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
    Artsakh gives up ideas of independence and joins Armenia.
    Nakhchivan divided between Armenia and Iran. (Elimination of Turkish/AZ border connection and Armenia does not feel surrounded by AZ)
    Iran cedes NW territory to Azerbaijan. (Not Tabriz and or West AZ province)
    New borders to be agreed upon based on demographics and local plebiscite but the process must be swift. Ultimately if you find yourself on the wrong side of the line you can freely move.
    Armenia : happy
    Azerbaijan : happy
    Turkey : who cares
    Iran : not happy
    Georgia : not happy
    I fully understand that a future Kurdistan could be involved in NW Iran as well but I do not think we can wait.
    Lets have peace in NK now.
