Georgia Doesn’t Recognize Nagorno-Karabakh Elections


(Civil.Ge) — The Georgian Foreign Ministry reaffirmed Tbilisi’s “unequivocal support” for Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and it “does not recognize the so-called ‘presidential elections’” held in the breakaway region on July 19.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday that the international community should intensify its efforts in order to solve “the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict peacefully through a constructive dialogue between the parties.”

The Georgian Foreign Ministry released similar statements when breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh held local elections in September, 2011 and parliamentary elections in May, 2010.
