Estonia considers the so-called parliamentary elections in Nagorno-Karabakh illegal


According to Foreign Minister Keit Pentus-Rosimannus, Estonia does not recognize the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh and therefore does not consider the results of the so-called parliamentary election held on May 3 to be legitimate or valid.

The Foreign Minister said that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be resolved and security and stability in the entire region must be achieved as a result of international negotiations. “Negotiations must determine the future of Nagorno-Karabakh. The region’s status cannot be influenced by holding illegal elections,” she added and noted Estonia’s support of the OSCE Minsk Group's efforts.
