The criminal situation in Armenia does not cause any concern, the Armenian Police said in a statement.
“The situation is safe for both the citizens of Armenia and tourists and is under full control of the law-enforcement bodies,” the Police said.
The statement comes in response to a call by the US Embassy in Armenia to be cautions when visiting Armenia during the New Year and Christmas holidays.
“A number of international organizations have assessed Armenia and its capital Yerevan as safe. The police and other law-enforcement bodies are doing their best to meet up to that assessment and ensure the security of the society, especially during the holidays,” the statement reads.
