“In 2020 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,” the Country Report on Terrorism-2020 of the US state Department says, APA reports.

The report says that Azerbaijani law enforcement and security services historically have 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. According to the Report there were no reported terrorist incidents in Azerbaijan in 2020: “Azerbaijani law enforcement and security services have demonstrated adequate capacity to detect, deter, and prevent acts of terrorism in Azerbaijan’s territory. Responsibility for counterterrorism is vested in several government agencies. The Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), Azerbaijan’s primary law enforcement agency, cooperates closely with the State Security Service (SSS), Azerbaijan’s domestic intelligence and counterterrorism service.”
