Paris assures Kurdish-dominated SDF of French support

<p style="text-align: left;">French presidency officials met representatives of the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Paris on Friday and assured them of French support, an Elysee palace official said.

Officials from the U.S.-backed SDF met with advisers to French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday following U.S. President Donald Trump&rsquo;s decision to withdraw U.S. forces, Reuters reported.

The SDF officials included Ilham Ahmed and Riaz Drar.

&ldquo;The advisers passed on a message of support and solidarity and explained to them the talks France had with U.S. authorities to continue the fight against Daesh (the IS),&rdquo; an Elysee official said.
