and if they chose to join Iran, would you welcome it?
But i am not talking about right now. This is all hypothetical. Besides, the Azeris run Iran, why would they want to seperate?
I was talking about separatists who operate in the three north-western provinces. There are four ethnic groups that have some separatists, these are: Kurds, Baluch, Azeris, and Arabs. Also what do you mean Azeri's run Iran ?
It would change our demography too much. Most of Azerbaijan is extremely anti-religious. They have inherited this from the Soviet Union. Though their government always claims the Muslims in certain regions are "Iranian agents"... they feel very oppressed living there... so I guess if anyone would be interested it would be them...
