A Kurdish group making a good will tour of the U.S. visited with officials at the state capitol in Nashville today.
Yusief Mati is a pastor of a Christian evangelical church in northern Iraq. He says the group is looking at American approaches to justice, education and political representation.
Mati says he’s helped start American-style schools in Kurdistan, and now the region is looking at setting up an American-style university.
Nashville is home to a sizeable Kurdish population, having been chosen as one of nine balloting sites for last year’s Iraqi elections.
