The Azerbaijani State Security Service said the information of the US Department of State about the risks of a terrorist threat in Azerbaijan is unfounded.
"There is information on the website of the U.S. Department of State about the risk of infection with COVID-19 and the risk of high terrorist threat in Azerbaijan and the recommendation was made for the U.S. citizens not to visit our country without urgent necessity," the statement on the website reads.
"In this regard, we state that the information about the risks of a terrorist threat on the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan does not correspond to reality and is unfounded," the statement said.
"At the same time, we inform you that the sustainable stability created in Azerbaijan as a result of the successful policy in the law enforcement field and security being pursued under the leadership of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev ensures the safety of our citizens and visitors from abroad," the Azerbaijani State Security Service noted.
"There is no risk of a terrorist threat in Azerbaijan," the statement reads.
