U.S. Embassy Statement regarding the False Bomb Threat

Earlier today, at approximately 12:50pm, the U.S. Embassy was notified by the Armenian Police that they had received a call-in bomb threat targeting the Embassy.  The Armenian Police, NSS, and Emergency Services quickly arrived on the scene to ensure there was no threat to the Embassy. Based on subsequent information and coordination with the police, the threat appears to groundless.  We thank the Armenian authorities for their swift and effective response and are continuing to closely coordinate.
