Dear Leaders:

In March of this year, I read an article in Roll Call by Congressman Silvestre Reyes, a former Congressman who has made multiple trips to Azerbaijan, most recently serving as an election monitor in 2013. (Please see: http://blogs.rollcall.com/beltway-insiders/azerbaijan-must-remain-a-strong-ally-of-the-united-states/?dcz=) Congressman Reyes has taken the time to study our country and learn a lot about us. We have great respect for him, and his March article describing the importance of Azeri support for the United States is right on point.
