During visits to both Armenia and Azerbaijan in February the Minister for the European Neighbourhood and the Americas highlighted UK concern over the large amount of unexploded ordnance across the region. The UK Government is deeply concerned by the ongoing loss of civilian life along the border as a result of unexploded ordnance. We continue to urge both Governments to work together to ensure that humanitarian organisations have unimpeded access to the region.
