Azerbaijan Interior Guard

Azerbaijan Interior Guard

The Azerbaijan Interior Guard is operating as a semi-independent entity under command by the Azerbaijani Ministry of Emergency.

Mission

The Azerbaijani interior guard is only used for internal emergencies such as natural disasters, restoring public order, etc. In case of foreign aggression against the state of Azerbaijan the interior guard is directly involved in restoring the territorial integrity of the country. The Azerbaijani interior guard personnel are well trained and meet NATO-standards.

One of the most important tasks of the interior guard is the safety of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan and Baku-Tbilisi-Arzurum pipelines. The BTC is considered to many experts as an alternative energy corridor for Europe, therefore NATO is providing Azerbaijan interior guard with technical equipment which include several helicopters and vehicles.
