The United Kingdom is deeply concerned by recent ceasefire violations on the international border between Armenia and Azerbaijan and greatly regrets the loss of life, APA reports citing uk.gov.az

"We call on both sides to respect the ceasefire and engage in dialogue to de-escalate the situation and avoid further casualties.

We urge both sides to show restraint and refrain from rhetoric that may increase tensions further.

We reiterate our support for the negotiation process facilitated by the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group aimed at securing a peaceful settlement to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The continued violence threatens regional stability and prosperity, and highlights the urgent need for formal negotiations to resume," reads the statement.
