Press briefing by Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan
Elections were recently held in Nagorno-Karabakh, which is occupied territory of Azerbaijan. What is Pakistan’s position on the election? (Amjad Ali- PTV News)
AnswerThe parliamentary election held on 3rd May 2015 in Nagorno-Karabakh, occupied territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a clear violation of international norms. The election constitutes a clear breach of international law and UN Security Council resolutions. It is taken as an attempt to hamper the efforts to bring a lasting solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through peaceful means. Pakistan reiterates its support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.
