Foreign Office

ISLAMABAD, Sept 10 (APP): Pakistan considered Karabakh as the sovereign territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan and any attempt to conduct the so-called elections there by the illegally installed regime was legally and morally reprehensible.

“Such an attempt is also a grave violation of the UN Charter and principles of established international law,” Spokesperson, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said in a press statement, on Sunday, in response to a query regarding the so-called presidential elections in the territory of Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan on Saturday condemned the so-called elections held in the territories of its Karabakh region, calling it an “extremely provocative step.”

“This is a clear violation of Azerbaijan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, is by no means admissible and tolerable,” Azerbaijan Foreign Ministry statement maintained.

It said that the “provocations by Armenia” had a detrimental impact on the normalization process and hindered the international efforts.
