'''Aji Chay'''<ref>{{cite news|title=ĀJĪ ČĀY|url=http://www.iranicaonline.org/articles/aji-cay-river-which-flows-into-lake-urumia|accessdate=October 6, 2015|work=[[Encyclopædia Iranica]]|date=July 29, 2011 |first=E. |last=Ehlers}}</ref> ({{lang-az|آجی چای Acı çay}}, {{lang-fa|تلخه رود}}), or '''Talkhe Rud''', is a river in north-western [[Iran]]. Most of it is situated in the [[East Azerbaijan Province]].
 
Its water is [[alkali]] due to passing from the lands with high mineralization. It is the largest river that discharges into [[Lake Urmia]]. It arises above [[Sarab, East Azerbaijan|Sarab]] from the slopes of [[Mount Bozgush]] and [[Sabalan|Mount Sabalan]]. Its tributary, the sweet water [[Quri Chay]], joins the Aji just northeast of central [[Tabriz]].
