The UK Government is closely monitoring the situation on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border following an increase in tensions on the border and exchange of fire on 16 November. 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 Minister for Europe and Americas has met both the Armenian and Azerbaijani Ambassadors to London in recent weeks to reinforce these messages.
