Security Posture for U.S. Citizens in Azerbaijan

U.S. Embassy Baku informs U.S. citizens that they should maintain a high level of vigilance in light of recent regional events and continued reports of possible threats of terrorist attacks and violence around the world, some of which include the possible targeting of U.S. citizens and interests, including in Azerbaijan.
