Summary/Abstract: The diplomatic conflict that exists between the government in Baghdad and the Kurdish RegionalGovernment impacts relations of both authorities at the international diplomatic level. As the case ofPolish-Iraqi relations demonstrates, meaningful and effective involvement with the KRG is obstructedand sometimes impossible because of the ongoing Baghdad-Erbil conflict and the continuous possibilityof the KRG seceding from Iraq. With the dynamics of Iraq changing post Maliki, it is important forthese diplomatic relations to change accordingly, both internally and externally, in order to protect theterritorial integrity of Iraq.
