Holding an illegal presidential election in the Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia is ridiculous, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hikmat Hajiyev told APA. He was commenting on the illegal “presidential election” to be held by the so-called regime in Nagorno-Karabakh on July 19. Hajiyev reminded that the so-called “parliamentary elections” on May 3, 2015 and “the referendum on constitutional changes” on February 20, 2017 of the illegal puppet regime established in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan by Armenia was rejected and not recognized by the international community.
He stressed that the holding of fabricated “presidential election” by illegal “parliament” of puppet regime is ridiculous and is nothing other than self-deception.
“It is very well known that “head” of puppet criminal regime, as well as members of so-called “parliament” are appointed by the political-military authorities of Armenia and they fulfill the functions of marionette,” said Hajiyev.
The spokesman went on to say that the illegal regime established by Armenia in the temporarily occupied territories of Azerbaijan is ultimately nothing other than the product of aggression and occupation and bloody ethnic cleansing.
