Azerbaijan is prepared to voice its position on the so-called municipal elections in Nagorno-Karabakh at the session of OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, deputy chairman of the Azerbaijani Parliament Bahar Muradova told media.
“Azerbaijan will not only voice its opinion on the issue, but also condemn the actions of the circles, supporting these actions of the separatist regime,” she said.
The discussions on “Role of the OSCE in unresolved conflicts – Nagorno-Karabakh” will be held within the OSCE PA autumn session on October 8.
Muradova said that the representatives of the OSCE chairman will attend the discussions. The OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen’s reports will be heard.
The illegal municipal elections were conducted in Nagorno-Karabakh, occupied by Armenia, on Sunday.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group – Russia, France, and the U.S. – are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council’s four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
