In preparation for his visit to the United States, Barzani had gathered leaders and representatives of political parties and national entities in the Kurdistan region, and that in 20 of the past month, and told them the order of the visit, and told them about the most important file will carry with him to Washington a "Kurdish state".

Barzani and facing efforts and supporters of the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan strong opposition inside Iraq, and in the capitals of the countries neighboring Iraq.
And it issued a number of Iraqi politicians about the positions of hardline US Congress decision on April 27 / April last, and the judge granting arms to the Kurdish Peshmerga and the Sunni tribes independently of the Iraqi government, as the parliament voted yesterday to reject the arming of both sides, without reference to the Iraqi government.

It also brought charges to Washington duplicity in attitudes, "as they declare their defense of the unity of Iraq, and agree on the legislation lead to the division of Iraq", in their own words.
Iraqi leaders and not from Arabs alone who opposes the division and independence of Kurdistan, a Kurdish political parties, there are also reservations strongly on independence.
Opponents and displays to declare "Kurdish state" justifications, the effect that this will bring a lot of problems for the Kurds, and will lead to a clash with the Iraqi central government and various parties; as well as with the opposition regional powers to do so.
