It has been proposed by international powers that Iraq and Syria be divided into Sunnistan, Shiastan and Kurdistan. Sunnistan would become a Sunni Arab state in northwest Iraq and eastern Syria, Shiastan a Shia Arab state in southeast Iraq, and Kurdistan in northern Syria and northern Iraq, whose people are Sunni Kurds and to a lesser extent, Christian Assyrians.
- Most of the Sunni Arab area in Syria and Iraq is occupied by government forces.
- All of the Shia Arab area in Iraq is controlled by the Federal government of Iraq or Shiite militias.
