We are not able to confirm media reporting that the Government of Turkey is recruiting Syrian troops to fight for the Azerbaijani military. The UK is deeply concerned by the recent ceasefire violations on the international border between Armenia and Azerbaijan and regrets the loss of life. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
