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.
