To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the role of the OSCE Minsk Group in identifying peaceful solutions to the dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh; and what plans they have to consider alternative mechanisms for seeking a peaceful resolution.
22 September 2021
The UK Government fully supports the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group to settle all outstanding matters related to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. In her most recent conversations with the Azerbaijani and Armenian Foreign Ministers, on 14 June and 6 September respectively, Wendy Morton MP, the Minister for the European Neighbourhood and Americas, reinforced UK support for the efforts of Minsk Group Co-Chairs. Our Embassies in Baku and Yerevan continue to encourage both parties to engage with the Co-Chairs' renewed efforts. The UK Government believes the Minsk group remains the most appropriate mechanism to seek a peaceful resolution to the conflict and has no plans to consider an alternative mechanism at this time.
