The United Kingdom has pledged £1 million (equivalent to $1.22 million) to provide humanitarian assistance to the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh and the displaced refugees from the region. The funds will be channeled through the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), as stated on the UK Foreign Office's official website.
In a statement, the British Foreign Office noted that following Azerbaijan's military operation to establish control over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, a substantial portion of the Armenian population has sought refuge in the neighboring Republic of Armenia, where they are encountering severe humanitarian challenges.
Leo Docherty, Deputy Foreign Minister of the UK, emphasized that this aid is primarily intended for the most vulnerable individuals facing significant hardships.
Docherty also reiterated the UK's earlier appeals for both Baku and Yerevan to "resume diplomatic negotiations and ensure unimpeded humanitarian assistance" for those impacted by the conflict.
