Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry: U.S. Department of State and Co-Chairs’ using “people of Nagorno Karabakh” expression is unacceptable

Baku: “Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan Republic has a population”

“The use of “people of Nagorno Karabakh” expression in the statements issued by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs and U.S. Department of State regarding illegal “parliamentary elections” to be held in the territories of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenia is wrong and unacceptable,” Spokesman for Foreign Ministry Hikmet Hajiyev told APA.

“In general, there is no notion of “people of Nagorno Karabakh”. Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan Republic has a population comprising Azerbaijani and Armenian communities. This fact should be expressed clearly and determined,” he said.
