ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Kurdish people in Northeaster Iraq, which seeks to regain greater Kirkuk, which was taken over by Iraqi Arabs loyal to the Hashemite monarchy for oil in 1927. Jalal Talabani of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan has worked to unify Iraq, after being labelled a secessionist for many years, according to journalist Cengiz Candar. The article suggests that cooperation is part of a broader strategy to gain support for Kurdish independence in the international community.
