The European Union (EU) does not recognize so-called "presidential and parliamentary elections" held in Nagorno Garabagh, ONA reports citing statement released by External Action of the European Union.
"In view of the so-called 'presidential and parliamentary elections' in Nagorno-Garabagh on 31 March 2020, the European Union reiterates that it does not recognise the constitutional and legal framework within which they are being held. This event cannot prejudice the determination of the future status of Nagorno-Garabagh or the outcome of the ongoing negotiation process.
The EU recalls its firm support to the OSCE Minsk Group and, in particular, to its Co-Chairs’ efforts to bring about progress beyond the status quo and substantive negotiations towards comprehensive and sustainable peace. The EU stands ready to further support efforts, aimed at early, peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Garabagh conflict", noted in the statement.
