The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan said on Monday it does not recognise the so-called parliamentary elections held in Georgia’s Russian-occupied Abkhazia region on Saturday, or the results of the ballot.

In its official statement, the Ministry said it “reaffirms support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.” The foreign office also said it considered it important to continue negotiations for a peaceful settlement of the Abkhazia issue “in compliance with the norms and principles of international law.”

The Georgian Foreign Ministry said on Sunday the so-called parliamentary elections in Abkhazia were a “futile attempt to legitimise the illegal occupation” of the country’s territories, and called on Russia to withdraw its 2008 recognition of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) as independent states.
