Washington: On the night of October 10-11 this year, the service car of the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Washington was fired upon. Our diplomatic representation immediately informed the relevant US institutions about the incident, and presented the camera images to the other party. On October 12, the charge d’affaires of the United States in our country was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, expressed our serious concern and dissatisfaction with the incident, and the request to ensure the security of the diplomatic mission of Azerbaijan was brought to the attention of the other party.

Recently, the systematic nature of attacks against diplomatic representations of Azerbaijan by radical members of Armenian communities in foreign countries, including attacks and acts of vandalism committed against our embassies in Washington, Paris, Beirut and other cities, is of serious concern. Ensuring the security of our diplomatic missions in foreign countries is an obligation of the host country under the international convention. In this regard, we emphasize once again the need to conduct an appropriate investigation into each incident and ensure the security of our embassies and diplomats at the appropriate level.

We remind you that after Armenia declared its independence in 1991, in order to realize its territorial claims against Azerbaijan, it turned terrorism into a means of state policy, and in the process of occupying the territories of Azerbaijan, it widely used terrorist means in different parts of our country, as well as committed terrorist acts in the city of Baku. As it is known, 24 Turkish diplomats working in different countries of the world were victims of Armenian terrorism.

We note with regret that neither the attacks that took place in recent days, nor the criminal cases opened in 2020 in European capitals, as well as in the city of Los Angeles, against Azerbaijani diplomatic missions, as well as members of the Azerbaijani community, have been brought to justice. It is this impunity that emboldens radical Armenian groups to resort to new provocations.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan strongly condemns the criminal acts of radical forces in foreign countries directed against Azerbaijani diplomatic missions, diplomats and their property and based on hatred, and demands that the institutions responsible for preventing such provocations in the respective countries approach their duties with full responsibility.

Investigative measures related to the attacks against our diplomatic missions in foreign countries will be kept under the control of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
