(CNN) – The Iraqi parliament met this week and were not able to start the formation of a new government. Sunnis and Kurds walked out, and the Kurdish leader has annexed more territory from the Iraqi central government.
When asked about the fear of the Kurds leaving, the State Department said: "A united Iraq is a stronger Iraq."
"... the focus should be on the existential threat that all Iraqis face and people in the region face, which is the threat of ISIL, we should not be giving them an opening by being divided at this critical moment," said the department's spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
Is that realistically happening?
CNN's Fareed Zakaria weighs in.
