SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, it is indeed an honor for me to welcome President Barzani here to the State Department. President Barzani had excellent discussions with both President Obama and Vice President Biden at the White House yesterday. And we will cover a number of important issues as part of our strong support of the Kurdish Regional Government and the Kurdish people as part of a unified Iraq.
PRESIDENT BARZANI: (Via interpreter) Thank you very much, Madame Secretary, for this opportunity. Thank you very much, Madame Secretary, for this warm welcome. Certainly, as you rightly mentioned, yesterday we had very good and productive meeting with Mr. President and Vice President. I am confident that our meeting today would be also conductive. And I would like also to assure you, Madame Secretary, that we are committed to a federal democratic Iraq. And we will continue in coordinating with you, Madame Secretary.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you all.
