According to an official at the Azerbaijani embassy in Washington, DC, a new citizenship law has not yet been adopted by the Azerbaijani parliament (16 Nov. 1995). As a result, the information contained in the 26 May 1995 letter to the DIRB regarding Azerbaijani citizenship is still valid (ibid.). Attached please find a copy of the mentioned letter.

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
