(dailyalert.org, Jun. 25, 2014)

Iraqi Kurdish President Massoud Barzani told CNN‘s Christiane Amanpour, “Iraq is obviously falling apart….After the recent events in Iraq, it has been proved that the Kurdish people should seize the opportunity now – the Kurdistan people should now determine their future.”

Barzani said that he would make that case to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry when they meet in Erbil Tuesday; America is a close Kurdish ally, but opposes independence for the region. (CNN)
