Four US Congressman wrote Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday, calling on him to “utilize all available resources to broker an immediate ceasing of offensive hostilities” against Kurdish forces and “seek a long-term diplomatic solution.”

The letter, signed by Representatives Ralph Abraham (R-Lousiana), Jared Polis (D-Colorado), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee), and Mike Gallagher (R-Wisconsin), “noted with great alarm the recent actions of the Government of Iraq, in concert with Iranian-backed Shia Militias, in attacking Kurdish forces in order to re-claim territory under the control and administration of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).”

“As you know,” the letter to Tillerson continued, “condoning an armed offensive by the Government of Iraq against the KRG will only further destabilize the region.”
