Azerbaijan has a long border with Iran, which needs defending, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said answering provocative questions from pro-Armenian Democratic Senator Bob Menendez….
Menendez was expressing concern with the US providing military education to Azerbaijan.
Blinken reminded that that were practical reasons for that.
