Hoshyar Zebari - Foreign Minister, Iraq

HARDtalk speaks to Iraq's foreign minister, Hoshyar Zebari. He said he wanted to rehabilitate Iraq's image after the fall of Saddam Hussein. But now sectarian violence in Iraq is arguably worse than ever before and is overlapping with sectarianism in neighbouring Syria. The Shia led government in Baghdad is accused of discriminating against the Sunni minority and of being too close to Iran. How can Hoshyar Zebari, himself an Iraqi Kurd, hope to have any coherent foreign policy, when his own country is in danger of slipping into civil war?
