Pakistan on Thursday rejected the so-called presidential and parliamentary elections held on March 31 in Nagorno-Karabakh a region illegally occupied by Armenia.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
"The presidential and parliamentary elections held on March 31, 2020 in Nagorno-Karabakh, occupied territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a clear violation of international norms," Aisha Farooqui, spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry, said during a weekly briefing.
The election constitutes a clear breach of international law and UN Security Council resolutions, she added.
"It is taken as an attempt by Armenia to hamper the ongoing negotiation process for finding a lasting solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through peaceful means," said Farooqui.
Nagorno-Karabakh is an internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan which has been illegally occupied since 1991 by Armenia.
