Kurdish President Massoud Barzani, right, shakes hands for photographers with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry at the presidential palace in Irbil on Tuesday, June 24, 2014. The president of Iraq’s ethnic Kurdish region declared Tuesday that “we are facing a new reality and a new Iraq” as the country’s Shiite-led government considers new leadership as an immediate step to curb a Sunni insurgent rampage. The comments by Barzani came as he met with Kerry, who is pushing the central government in Baghdad to at least adopt new policies that would give more authorities to Iraq’s minority Sunnis and Kurds.(AP Photo/ Brendan Smialowski, Pool)
