Barham Salih, prime minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government in Suleimaniyah, echoes Kurdish opposition to direct elections for Iraq's new government. Kurds, an ethnic minority in Iraq, also regard the city of Kirkuk as an integral part of the Kurdistan region that they have operated independently since the 1991 Persian Gulf war. Hear NPR's Robert Siegel and Salih.
