Baroness Cox: Armenians are still deeply disturbed about the future and the lack of international support for their rights and the survival of their historic land.

Baroness Cox has travelled to Armenia to be a first hand witness to the conflict initiated by Azerbaijan. 

She has asked that I highlight the following information. On the return of Caroline (Lady Cox) I am looking forward to learning more about the first hand experiences and all she has learned, and look forward to reporting what I am able to here. (Andrew Haigh.)

Here is the first article given to Lord Alton and released through his website:

Baroness (Caroline) Cox – who has sent this report from Armenia

Baroness Cox has travelled to Armenia to be a first hand witness to the conflict initiated by Azerbaijan. She has sent this statement today.

We note the ceasefire, which hopefully will bring an end to the military offensives by Azerbaijan, including the use of drones, and the attacks on civilians.

Armenians are still deeply disturbed about the future and the lack of international support for their rights and the survival of their historic land.

As Azerbaijan has violated ceasefires it is encouraging to see that Russia will be inserting monitors.

We hope that there will be thorough and effective protection by international bodies of civilian and military prisoners, given Azerbaijan’s notorious record of torture, abuse, and beheadings.


Here is the second article released on The House online magazine:


The UK government must change tack and urgently bring to justice those responsible for war crimes against the Armenian people

Despite a ceasefire, reports of brutality against military and civilian prisoners have emerged. The UK must intervene and help the people of Nagorno Karabakh.

Among colleagues in Parliament, little is spoken about Azerbaijan’s brutal war against Nagorno Karabakh. Partly, I suspect, because ‘Nagorno Karabakh’ is a difficult-to-pronounce and hard-to-reach location in the South Caucasus. But mainly because there is no appetite for taking a stand against Azerbaijan – irrespective of its appalling human rights record.

As someone from the Foreign Office once told me: “No one has an interest in other countries; only interests. We have oil interests in Azerbaijan. Good morning.”

I was in Nagorno Karabakh many times during the previous war (1990-94). I used to count 400 Grad missiles a day, fired by Azerbaijan on to the small city of Stepanakert...

  1. The current ceasefire is obviously a victory for Ajerbaijan and Turkey and defeat for our Christian brothers and sisters in Armenia. We must pray and seek the Lord about what we can do. We serve a mighty God.
