Hollande: Those attacked in Afrin are those fighting ISIS
Rojava Representative for France, Xalid Isa met with former President of France, François Hollande to call attention to the Turkish state’s invasion and genocidal attacks against Afrin.
Kurds continue their diplomatic efforts in Europe against the Turkish state’s invasion and genocidal attacks on Afrin. Rojava Representative for France, Xalid Isa met with former President of France on this basis.
In a short statement after the meeting, Hollande said the meeting had several titles, the most prominent of which -he said- was the importance of efforts in order for the Turkish state’s aerial attacks on Afrin to stop and Syrian airspace be closed for Turkey.
Hollande said; “As you remember, those hit in Afrin today are those who are fighting ISIS in support of the International Coalition, and those who also lent a helping hand to the Arabs in Raqqa. During my term as President, we were in constant relations with the Kurds in the fight we developed with the Coalition in Syria and Iraq. Today’s meeting was based on this concept.”
Speaking after Hollande, Xalid Isa recalled that France was the first country to act in terms of support from international forces during the Kobanê battle period. He said the same sensitivity should be shown for Afrin today.
