Abstract

Following the collapse of the USSR, regional states of the Caucasus faced serious political and economic problems. It needs to be mentioned that some of the fundamental problems existing in the region can be traced back to various historical and social factors that can be analyzed under the issues related with the Third world countries. Recent developments in the region including territorial disputes, economic and military crisis, security and strategic vacancy in the region has caught the attention of major regional and global players like the USA, EU, Russian Federation, Turkey, Iran, Israel, Pakistan, Chechnya and Saudi Arabia. For instance, the USA see the Caucasus and Caspian Sea region as its strategic economic interests, and vital areas. The Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) as the southern neighbor of Caucasus countries is considered as one of the major regional players. Historical, political, cultural and geographical links with regional countries beside prime and vital issues is of the most fundamental effective factors in regional policies of Iran. Furthermore based ideologies and principals over IRI’s domestic and foreign policies have paved the ground for further relationships, confrontation, conflicts and coalitions with regional countries.
