ArmInfo. The co-chairs of   the OSCE Minsk Group expressed their attitude to the holding of  elections to local self-government authorities on September 8 in  Artsakh.

As APA reports referring to the OSCE Department of Communication and  Media Relations, the co-chairs recognize the right of the people of  Nagorno-Karabakh to decide on their future in the context of a  comprehensive settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: "But  neither the OSCE Minsk Group co- chairing countries, nor other  countries they do not recognize the independence and sovereignty of  Nagorno- Karabakh, the results of these elections should not be  considered as a factor affecting the legal status of  Nagorno-Karabakh, they should no in any case influence the results of  the current negotiations aimed at a peaceful settlement of the  conflict and the final status of Nagorno-Karabakh. The co-chairs of  the OSCE Minsk Group remain committed to supporting the parties in a  peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. "

It should be noted that September 22 local self-government  authorities elections in 228 communities of Artsakh were held. A  little over 67 thousand people or 65.6% took part in the elections.
