The Embassy of the United States in Baku is the diplomatic mission of the United States of America in Azerbaijan.


Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the United States recognized Azerbaijan's independence on December 25, 1991. This recognition was announced by President George H.W. Bush in an address to the nation. Azerbaijan previously had been a constituent republic of the USSR.[1]

Diplomatic relations between the two countries were officially established on February 19, 1992, with President Bush announcing the decision in a press statement. Shortly after, the American Embassy in Baku was opened on March 16, 1992, with Robert Finn assuming the position of Chargé d'Affaires ad interim.[1]

On October 25, 2020, the embassy sent out a warning to U.S. citizens due to the ongoing Second Nagorno-Karabakh War.[2] The conflict resolved after a ceasefire on November 10 of that year.[3] The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remains one of the primary interests of the U.S. embassy.[4]
