ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — After launching a trip to the US and some European countries, Kurdistan region President Masoud Barzani returned to Erbil Wednesday evening.
 
After holding several successful meetings with top US, Hungarian and Czech leaders, Barzani and his KRG delegation returned to Kurdistan, according to a release by the office of the presidency. 
 
Barzani arrived in Washington on May 2 and met with US President Barack Obama and top American officials to discuss the latest security developments in the Kurdistan region, the role of Peshmerga forces in the impending military campaign against the so-called Islamic State in Mosul and the issue of Kurdish independence.
 
The Kurdish cause had been well received in Washington and exceeded expectations, Barzani told Rudaw Friday in an exclusive interview in the Czech capital Prague.

Welcome home Mr Massoud Barzani. Could you please tell yourself the Kurdish People in Kurdistan what have been discussing with Obama Amin, Republican Senators, Zhecke and Hungary, only the TOPICS? Please tell us what do you expect in short, medium and long term on the following subjects: 1. Providing the Kurdish Peshmerga Forces directly with weapons and when and how ( does not matter) ? 2. Did you really brought the Kurdish Self determination and Kurdish Indepency with Obama and what was his clear answer? What do you expect from the Democrats and republicans in US on this subject? Can we sell our Kurdish Oil directly to the International markets,matter so many years of pointless and useless negotiations with Baghdad ( was first with Al Maliki and now with Abaddi) ? With much respect for your time and please, we don not need to have any announcement (tasrihat) from your office clerk Fouad Hussein! We want to hear everything out of your heart and mind!

I'm sure president Barzani will give you a call later tonight Mr. Lashkari, 10 PM ok?
Hashar | 14/5/2015
Sarook Barzani has made thousands of visits all over the world. He has gained lots of credit for Kurds in all parts. Thank you Mr. President but where is independence??? Are you going to wait on Obamas Administration, Baghdad or neighboring countries forever to agree to Kurdish Independence. Wrong Move.
