The official website of the US Department of State informed US citizens of the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 coronavirus and the high terrorist threat in Azerbaijan and advised them not to enter our country unless absolutely necessary. The information has been disseminated on the Azerbaijani segment of social networks.
In this regard, we declare that such information about a terrorist threat on the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan is not true and is completely unfounded.
At the same time, we note that the lasting stability and peace created in our country as a result of the successful law enforcement and security policy pursued under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev ensures the safety of our citizens, as well as foreigners visiting Azerbaijan. There is currently no risk of a terrorist threat to those wishing to travel to our country,” the State Security Service said. US State Department warns US citizens against travelling to Azerbaijan and Armenia.
The United States upgraded its travel advisory for Azerbaijan to the highest level, Level 4 (red), and advised its citizens not to travel to this country.
The State Department listed coronavirus, border tensions and the threat of terrorism as reasons for the warning.
