In her meetings with the Armenian and Azerbaijani Foreign Ministers, on 4 and 17 November 2021 respectively, the former Minister for Europe and Americas raised the importance of the return of all prisoners of war and detainees. I will continue to raise this important issue in my future engagements with representatives of the Armenian and Azerbaijani governments. The UK Government continues to support the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs to facilitate discussions with a view to settling all outstanding matters related to the conflict.
