The Court received a request for an interim measure lodged by Armenia against Turkey concerning the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. On 29 September 2020 the Court called upon both Azerbaijan and Armenia to refrain from taking any measures which might entail breaches of the Convention rights of the civilian population, and to comply with their engagements under the Convention.

Taking account of the escalation of the conflict, the Court now calls on all States directly or indirectly involved in the conflict, including Turkey, to refrain from actions that contribute to breaches of the Convention rights of civilians, and to respect their obligations under the Convention.
