Armenian National Council in Baku was a representative body of the Armenians residing on the Azerbaijani territory.
When the Yerevan-based Armenian Congress of Eastern Armenians was established at October 1917, it united the Armenian National Councils all around the Russian Empire. It united Armenian National Council of Karabagh, Armenian National Council of Baku, and Armenian National Council of Tiflis.

“I havent seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the companys behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
“A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing.”
—Alexander Hamilton (17571804)
“The exile is a singular, whereas refugees tend to be thought of in the mass. Armenian refugees, Jewish refugees, refugees from Franco Spain. But a political leader or artistic figure is an exile. Thomas Mann yesterday, Theodorakis today. Exile is the noble and dignified term, while a refugee is more hapless.... What is implied in these nuances of social standing is the respect we pay to choice. The exile appears to have made a decision, while the refugee is the very image of helplessness.”
—Mary McCarthy (19121989)
