Fake news reports about visa-free travel to the U.S. give false hope to Azerbaijanis.31 March 2017
One thing that might have contributed to the widespread suspension of disbelief was the fact that, earlier this week, Georgia did celebrate a similar milestone in diplomatic relations. Azerbaijan’s neighbor has been granted visa-free travel to most EU countries, RFE/RL reports, an “enormous achievement,” in the words of Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili, who echoed the celebratory mood that pervaded the country.
However, Azerbaijan still needs to wait before getting a similar party started. The U.S. Embassy in Azerbaijan, prompted by the rumors, felt the need to issue a press release saying that no changes had, in fact, been made to Azerbaijan’s visa regime, virtualaz.org writes.
