Newsline: Azerbaijan summons US envoy after shots fired at embassy vehicle in Washington

A vehicle of the Azerbaijani Embassy came under fire in Washington, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said. The attack took place between the night of Oct. 10 and early hours of Oct. 11, according to the ministry. The ministry said it summoned the US charge d’affaires in Azerbaijan and expressed “serious concern and dissatisfaction over the incident.” After the attack, the embassy immediately contacted relevant US authorities and provided them surveillance footage, the statement said. Azerbaijan “strongly condemns the criminal acts based on hatred of radical forces in foreign countries directed against Azerbaijani diplomatic missions, diplomats and their property, and demands that the institutions responsible for preventing such provocations in their respective countries approach their duties with full responsibility,” it said.
