Azerbaycan, the independent nation, is fortunately governed by governments that respect the Turkist ideal since the fall of the Soviet Union. Azerbaycan will keep the Azeris of Iran from being completely assimilated in a society where they actually have economic dominance
I dont think the azeris in azerbaijan is interested in conflict with iran, iran is hostile when it comes to support for their minoirities

Yes you are right. The Rize-Trabzon-Artvin and Erzurum areas, especially Erzurum, is next to identical to Azeri. East-Central Anatolian is closer to Erzurum, and it goes like that all the way to Istanbul ;D
Nomad, rider of the ancient east Nomad, rider that men know the least Nomad, where you come from no one knows Nomad, where you go to no one tells
hmmm once i read that Ahiska was the bridge between Azerbaycan & Erzurum culturaly & lingusticly. Since there is no Ahiska anymore Kars will do (it's a couple 100km south). Especialy the Dialect in Ardahan(more notably Posof) is verry close to the Ahiska Dialect. But what is special to the Ahiska dialect is that some words or most words are the same but are pronounced different more like a Northern Dialect like Crimean tatarca.
I'm going to start a new thread about this and like for everybody to share their knowledge
