NATO does not recognize the “parliamentary elections” in Nagorno-Karabakh, NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia James Appathurai stated.
“With regard to the “parliamentary elections” that took place in Nagorno-Karabakh, NATO does not accept the results of these “elections” as affecting the legal status of Nagorno-Karabakh, nor do they prejudge the outcome of the ongoing negotiations to bring a lasting and peaceful settlement to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. NATO supports the OSCE Minsk Group, including the recent statement of the Co-Chairs. We look forward to an early continuation of the dialogue between President Aliyev and President Sargsyan in the context of the Minsk Process.
