American senator during forum by Hudson institute was talking about Kurdish independence. He confirmed on a point that US should support Kurdish independence because through this way US will reach of one of its significant aim which is US national security.


Cruz says "US foreign policy in supporting Kurds has failed while they were fought shoulder to shoulder with American in defeating enemies”.


He is one of those who link US national security with Kurdish independence because he believes that both sides have the same target.
