As “Rosbalt” with reference to Baku Trend news Agency, the United States State Department acknowledged receipt of the letter from Congresswoman Dana Rohrabacher addressed to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the need to support the struggle for independence of southern Azerbaijan from Iran and the possibility of unification with the Republic of Azerbaijan.
This was reported at the briefing by State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland. According to her, she replied to a letter from the Congressman, but details of the correspondence will not be made public. “We are in favour of the principle of territorial integrity,” said Nuland, replying to a question by journalists about the possibility of United States support of the struggle for independence of southern Azerbaijan.’
