Foreign Ministry: “Baku is among world’s safest cities”

“Azerbaijan hosts many international sports competitions every year and security is at the highest level during these events,” Leyla Abdullayeva, the spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry, told ONA commenting on the warnings made by some foreign media before the Europa League final match in Baku.

“In general, I would like to note that today our country and its capital, Baku, are among the safest places in the world. It is no coincidence that last year Baku was ranked among the top 50 cities in the rating of the world’s safest cities, even surpassing many European countries. Of course, all relevant security measures will be taken during the final match of the UEFA Europa League,” the Foreign Ministry’s official said.
