UN Secretary General Guterres said in a statement issued by a spokesman on October 31 that he fully supports the call of the Minsk group of the organization for security and cooperation in Europe for the immediate implementation of a humanitarian cease-fire in Armenia and Azerbaijan. On October 30, representatives of the co chairpersons of the OSCE Minsk group held talks with the foreign ministers of Armenian and Azerbaijani in Geneva on October 30. The joint statement issued after the talks said that the co chairpersons of the OSCE Minsk group called on both parties to the conflict to fully implement their previous commitments and immediately implement a humanitarian cease-fire in the Nagorno Karabakh region. < / P > < p > Guterres is deeply concerned about the continuing conflict. He condemned all attacks and reiterated that both sides should do their utmost to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure in military operations in accordance with international humanitarian law. On October 25, Armenian and Azerbaijani promised to implement a new round of humanitarian cease-fire in the Naka region in Washington, D.C. This is the third cease-fire agreement reached by the two sides since a new round of conflict broke out in the Naka region on September 27. However, after the cease-fire agreement came into effect, both sides accused the other party of breaking the cease-fire and launching attacks. The Naka region is located in the southwest of Azerbaijan and its residents are mostly Armenian. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, a war broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenian over the ownership of the Naka region. In 1994, the two sides reached an agreement on a comprehensive cease-fire, but the two countries have been in a state of hostility over the Naka issue, and armed conflicts have occurred from time to time.
