The UK Government condemns the recent violence along the international border between Armenia and Azerbaijan. In calls with Armenian Foreign Minister Mirzoyan and Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Bayramov on 15 and 17 September respectively, I reinforced the need for a cessation of hostilities and a return to substantive negotiations to settle all outstanding matters between the parties. The United Kingdom will continue to work with both parties in the coming months to support efforts to secure regional stability and security.
