To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what representations he has made to his counterparts in (a) Armenia and (b) Azerbaijan on the use of cluster munitions and heavy artillery in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
2 November 2020
We are aware that there are allegations of the use of cluster munitions and heavy artillery in the Naognoro-Karabakh conflict. I spoke to the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister on 15 October and highlighted continued UK concern over the escalation in and around Nagorno-Karabakh and strongly condemned all targeting of civilian areas and the increasing numbers of civilian casualties. I also spoke to the Armenian Foreign Minister on 19 October where I delivered the same messages. The UK continues to urge de-escalation and a return to the negotiating table.
