Goulet: No one agrees with referendum in Azerbaijan’s occupied lands 15 February 2017

No one can agree with any kind of election or referendum in Azerbaijan’s occupied territory, Nathalie Goulet, French senator and vice-chair of the Senate’s Foreign Affairs Committee, told Trend Feb.15.

Cheating history and distorting facts will not create new truth and cheating reality will not help to solve the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, she said commenting on the the illegal “referendum on constitutional changes” planned to be held in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan Feb.20.

The so-called Nagorno-Karabakh Republic doesn´t exist and even Armenia doesn´t recognize the independence of Azerbaijan’s occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region, said Goulet.

The "government" of the so-called Nagorno-Karabakh Republic doesn’t correspond to the international law and UN resolutions, she added.

Earlier, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the illegal “referendum on constitutional changes” planned to be held in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan is a clear violation of the country’s constitution, as well as the norms and principles of international law and, therefore, has no legal effect.

Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry reiterates that the illegal regime established by Armenia in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan is ultimately nothing other than the product of aggression and occupation.

This provocative step, as well as Armenia’s attempts to change the name of Nagorno-Karabakh region, an integral part of Azerbaijan, is yet another clear manifestation of the fact that Armenia is not interested in seeking a political settlement of this armed conflict, the statement said.
