Baku,June 26, AZERTAC

Country Reports on Terrorism 2019 released by the United States Department of State said the Azerbaijani law enforcement and security services had demonstrated adequate capacity to detect, deter, and prevent acts of terrorism in Azerbaijan’s territory last year.

"In 2019, the Azerbaijani government actively worked to deter, detect, and defeat terrorist efforts to move people, money, and materials across its land and maritime borders and within the South Caucasus. Azerbaijani law enforcement and security services conducted operations to disrupt and prevent terror attacks, arrested and prosecuted suspected terrorists, and prosecuted returning Azerbaijanis suspected of joining or financing terrorist groups fighting outside Azerbaijan," the Country Reports said.

"Azerbaijan used terrorist and criminal watchlists and biographic/biometric screening at ports of entry. Azerbaijan’s law enforcement and security services share information among themselves, and with regional and international partners regarding terrorism matters."
