Nadine Maenza, Chair of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, was photographed with former President of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Masoud Barzani, in the latter's office, and against the backdrop of a map of Greater Armenia and Kurdistan—instead of present-day Turkey.

This photo has caused a stir in the Turkish press, and Turkish figures see a provocation against Turkey's territorial integrity in this photo.

The map in this photo was printed in 1794 in London.
