The foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council (Parliament) of the Slovak Republic said that the visit of Slovak deputies of the annexed Crimea is not an attempt to legitimize the occupation of the Peninsula. This is stated in the statement of the foreign Affairs Committee of the Slovakian Parliament, which was provided by the Embassy of Ukraine in Slovakia, publishing the “UKRINFORM”.
“Since the Slovak Republic continue to consider the Crimea the territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders, the foreign Affairs Committee rejects any manifestation of legitimization of the occupation and annexation of the Crimea by the restriction of the constitutional entities of the Slovak Republic”, – stated in the message.
The Committee recalled that Slovakia according to the common position of the countries-members of EU and NATO do not recognize the results of the illegal referendum in Crimea in March 2014
Recall that ten of the Slovak deputies led by Peter Marceca visited the annexed Crimea August 1, 2018, Then the foreign Ministry of Ukraine reminded that this visit is a violation of Ukrainian laws.
According to Ukrainian legislation, foreigners and persons without citizenship must travel to the annexed Crimea only with the permission from Kiev through Ukrainian checkpoints on the administrative border with the Peninsula.
