On 30 October the Foreign Secretary announced £1 million in funding to the ICRC to support their humanitarian efforts in the region. The UK Government is providing funding towards additional monitoring and analysis of the humanitarian situation via organisations such as the Humanitarian 2 Humanitarian network and supporting additional posts within the UN offices in-country. We continue to urge both sides to ensure the safety and security of all displaced persons, including through my recent calls with the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister and the Armenian Foreign Minister. The UK Government is keeping the situation under close review, coordinating with local and international partners and will continue to explore opportunities to support partners to deliver an effective international response.
