U.S. have confirmed the plan of merger of Iran and Azerbaijan

2012-08-29 14:11

The U.S. State Department has confirmed the receipt of a letter from the Congressman Dana Rorobahera addressed to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the need to support the fight for the independence of South Azerbaijan from Iran, as well as the possibility of its merger with the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Trend reported.


This was announced at a press briefing by the State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland.

This may be considered another confirmation of the U.S. readiness to append northern Iran, populated by ethnic Azerbaijanis, to Azerbaijan in exchange for Baku's participation in a military operation against Iran on the side of the West

"We support the principle of territorial integrity", Nuland said, when asked about the probability of the U.S. support of South Azerbaijan's struggle for the independence.

As recalled by the Rosbalt, in the north of Iran in the region with the center in Tabriz there live several times more ethnic Azeris than in Azerbaijan. Against the background of the plans of the partition of Iran's territory on several states, the U.S. and Israel are increasingly talking about them as an "oppressed minorities". However, the Azeris are well represented in the Iranian elite. Thus, Iran's spiritual leader Ayatollah Khamenei is an ethnic Azeri.
