The UK Government is monitoring the situation on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border following an increase in tensions last year. Through the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe and bilateral engagement in Baku and Yerevan, UK officials continue to urge the Armenian and Azerbaijani authorities to settle all outstanding matters including the peaceful negotiation of their borders, in line with the Minsk Group Principles. The former Minister for Europe and Americas, Wendy Morton MP, met the Armenian and Azerbaijani Ambassadors to the UK in November to reinforce these messages.
