U.S. Secretary of State responds to congressman's letter about South Azerbaijan

by Savalan

QUESTION: Another question on Iran. Apparently, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has sent Secretary Clinton a letter regarding Iran's Azerbaijan and the Republic of Azerbaijan. He is suggesting that the Republic of Azerbaijan -- there is talk about joining the -- Iran's Azerbaijan actually to their territory. He was -- that he was encouraging the Secretary to support that idea. Is that something that the Secretary -- is that letter something that the Secretary has given any thought to? Has she responded? Where does that come in in the U.S. foreign policy?

MS. NULAND: Well, beyond saying that we received a letter on this subject from Congressman Rohrabacher, that we have now responded to the letter, I think I'm not going to get into the details of our congressional correspondence.

QUESTION: Well, then in your -- in general, are you in -- is the U.S. Administration in favor of splitting up countries?

MS. NULAND: Well, I think you know where we generally are on territorial integrity.

QUESTION: But you have responded to Rohrabacher?

MS. NULAND: We have. We have. We have.
