Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry: "Elections" to be held by separatist regime shall have no legal effect

"The only way is the withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh region and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan”

Baku. Malahat Najafova – APA. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan has issued a statement on the so-called “elections” to the “parliament” of the puppet separatist regime are planned to be held in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan on 3 May 2015, APA reports.

 

The statement says that against the background of continuing military occupation and ethnic cleansing of the territories of Azerbaijan, the holding of “elections” to the structures of the puppet separatist regime there constitutes a clear violation of the Constitution of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the norms and principles of international law, and, therefore, shall have no legal effect whatsoever.

 

“Armenia’s policy of annexation of the seized territories of Azerbaijan has no chance of succeeding. The only way to achieve a durable and lasting settlement is to ensure the unconditional and complete withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh region and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan, the exercise by the forcibly displaced population of its inalienable right to return and the establishment of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan on the basis of respect for each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within their internationally recognized borders. The Republic of Azerbaijan once again calls on the Armenian side, instead of wasting time and misleading its own people and the international community, to cease its policy of annexation and ethnic cleansing and to engage constructively in the conflict settlement process and comply with its international obligations,” says statement.
