Massoud Barzani: The KRG Representative to the U.S. Responds

Editor's note: The following is an unsolicited response to a World Politics Review commentary from Qubad Talabany, the Kurdish Regional Government's representative to the United States.

WPR usually publishes reader mail on our blog, but we have chosen to publish this as a stand alone item out of respect for Mr.Talabany's diplomatic stature.

As both a news and analysis journal, WPR recognizes that some articles it publishes will provoke differences of opinion and disagreements of interpretation. Above all, our commitment is to airing all sides of a contested issue, so long as they are respectfully expressed.
