The US embassy in Azerbaijan said yesterday, Saturday, that it had received information about attacks and kidnappings that may target US citizens and foreigners in this country against the background of the conflict in the Karabakh region.
The diplomatic mission said on its website that “the United States embassy in Baku has received credible information about terrorist attacks and possible kidnappings targeting American and foreign citizens in Baku.”
The embassy added that “American citizens are urged to exercise more caution in places where Americans or foreigners may meet,” including large hotels in the capital, without further details on the source of these threats.
This warning comes a day after a similar message in which the US State Department spoke of “credible” threats of attacks or kidnappings that might target Americans in Istanbul or other places, but the US State Department did not link the two warnings.
The Turkish role in the Karabakh conflict has aroused the concern of many Western countries since Ankara confirmed that it wanted to help Azerbaijan “regain its occupied lands.”
On Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts separately and urged them to “end the violence and (protect) civilians.”
A few days ago, Pompeo said that he hopes that Armenia will be able to “defend itself” against Azerbaijan, in what appeared to be a supportive position of one of the parties to the conflict.
