Foreign policy issues and recognition of any entity are under the powers of the US Federal Government in line with the US law, Hikmet Hajiyev, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson told.
He was commenting on the resolution adopted by the House of Representatives of the US State of Georgia on the “recognition” of the “independence” of Azerbaijan’s occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region.
During discussions that lasted for 15 minutes the House of Representatives of the US State of Georgia adopted a resolution on the alleged recognition of the so-called regime created in the Armenian-occupied Azerbaijani territories, according to Hajiyev.
Hajiyev added that the US recognizes Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and sovereignty within the internationally recognized borders.
With trivial and provocative actions of this kind, Armenia is trying to undermine the negotiation process on a peaceful settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict in compliance with the norms and principles of international law and the UN Security Council resolutions, as well as efforts aimed at restoring peace and security in the region, the spokesperson said.
In such a way, Armenia is also trying to continue the occupation of Azerbaijani territories and maintain the status quo in the conflict, Hajiyev concluded.
