Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland expresses its deep concern about the cases of violence deployed around the Karabakh conflict and calls on all parties to reduce tensions, the British Embassy to Armenia reports.

“The UK calls on both sides, Armenia and Azerbaijan, to take immediate steps to reduce tension and to comply with the agreement on ceasefire signed in 1994. We are deeply frustrated by the fact of human casualties incurred from both the sides. Recalling the statement made by the UK Minister of State for Europe, David Lidington in connection with the 20th anniversary of the ceasefire, we call on the parties to cooperate with the OSCE Minsk Group aimed at reaching the peace agreement,” the statement says.
