The Washington Think Tank for the Middle East, which advises the US government on Middle East policy, reported in an article about the decline of the importance of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region in the framework of US Middle East policies and believes that the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, unlike in the past, is not one of the main pillars of the US Middle East. Rather, Washington considers the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to be part of this country's policy.
The Washington Institute has identified issues such as misgoverning, corruption, and inefficiency of the Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government as factors influencing the change in Washington's view of Iraqi Kurds.
In this article, which compares the government of the Kurdistan Region and Palestine and examines the American view of the two, among the negative things about the Kurdistan Region is the holding of the independence referendum at an inappropriate time.
However, it has been emphasized that the US government is currently focused on establishing the rights of the people of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq through strengthening federalism in Iraq and also defending the rights of the Kurdistan Region government in matters related to the management of energy resources.
This think tank has emphasized that it is understandable that the Kurdistan Region is not prioritized by Washington as in the past, and this stems from the problems that America is dealing with in the Middle East.
In the end, the Washington think tank has recommended that now that the Kurds of Iraq are not a priority for the United States, Washington should emphasize on building institutions and strengthening the main institutions in the Kurdistan region.
