This week, I made a guest appearance on CGTN America's program, The Heat, with Anand Naidoo to discuss the referendum in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and its implications. I was part of a panel discussion that included former Turkish MP Aykan Erdemir, Kurdistan-based media Rudaw's Namo Abdulla, and former Iraq Defense Attache to the US, Ismael Alsodani. The program touched on the Kurdistan referendum, the prospects of Kurdish independence, and the position of the regional powers as well as the central government in Baghdad.
