British MP: the UK is concerned by the on-going ceasefire breaches along the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh

 The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is sometimes described as a frozen conflict and this is misleading, as the ceasefire breaches on the contact line of Azerbaijani and Armenian troops continue, UK Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Mark Simmonds said on Tuesday in a debate on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in the UK parliament.

Trend quotes Simmonds as saying that the UK is concerned by the on- going ceasefire breaches along both the line of contact in Nagorno- Karabakh, as well as on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border.

In his speech, Simmonds said that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict continues to hamper development in both Armenia and Azerbaijan and causes further instability in an already troubled South Caucasus region.

The UK strongly supports the work of the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group-led peace process, Simmonds said.

The Co-Chairs work hard to facilitate progress and the international community stands ready to provide further support, according to Simmonds.

The Minister also urged both sides to exercise restraint and assured the British government is committed to doing everything it can to foster efforts towards resolution of the conflict.
