 OSCE MG co-chairs don’t accept results of so-called “elections” in Nagorno-Karabakh

The OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs do not accept the results of the so-called “general elections” held March 31 in Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region occupied by Armenia. 

“We do not accept the results of these “elections” as affecting the legal status of Nagorno-Karabakh and stress that the results in no way prejudge the final status of Nagorno-Karabakh or the outcome of the ongoing negotiations to bring a lasting and peaceful settlement to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” the co-chairs said in joint statement.

In the context of a comprehensive settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the co-chairs recognize the role of the population of Nagorno-Karabakh in deciding its future in accordance with the principles and elements reiterated in the their statement of 9 March 2019. 

“The co-chairs note, however, that Nagorno-Karabakh is not recognized as an independent and sovereign state by any of the co-chair countries or any other country,” read the statement.
