Dependence of the countries on each other has a great impact on geopolitical weight and type of their behavior. The relations between Iran and Azerbaijani Republic, from the beginning of 1990 when the latter gained independence have been with ups and downs and challenges. Nakhchivan which is a part of Azerbaijan Republic is separated by Zangezurmargi corridor from mainland and after the Nagorno-Karabakh war, Iran has been the only connecting path between Nakhchivan and Azerbaijan Republic. Due to tensions and challenges that had aroused in relations of Azerbaijan Republic and Iran over the years and also lack of territorial continuity between Azerbaijan Republic and its exclave unit (Nakhchivan) this has led to the biggest problem for Nakhchivan. Here Iran can use Nakhchivan's dependence on Iran to shape Azerbaijan's posture towards Iran. The present paper by a descriptive-analytical method and by use of library material and questionnaire wants to identify the priorities of economic program which have maximum impact in depending Nakhchivan on Iran. The finding of the study shows the increase in the volume of transportation and transit through Iranian territory, improving the communication infrastructure, increase in the volume of oil and gas swaps and expanding power generation plant, have the most effective impact on depending Nakhchivan on Iran.
