BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The co-leader of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), Riyad Daraar, told BasNews this week that France made no promises to him about their future inside Syria.

“Riyadh Daraar, a co-leader of the Syrian Democratic Council (the political wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces), told BasNews that the French, alike the rest of the world, were shocked by Trump’s withdrawal decision, and they are studying the situation to determine next moves,” BasNews said.

However, Daraar made it known that despite no promises from the French, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have more than one option available to handle the situation.

“We have more than one option available now to handle the situation and save the region. But we do not rush as it needs to be done timely,” he added.

Recently, a delegation from the SDC flew to Damascus to meet with Syrian government officials about the imminent Turkish military invasion in the northern part of Syria.

While no agreement was made, it appears there is going to be another round of talks between the government SDC to find a solution to prevent the Turkish invasion.

Yeah, when the Amrikans are packing their bags and leaving automatically every one will leave. Dogs will also follow their master. Very soon the British, French and rest of the so called 70 countries part of the coalition will also leave syria. No one now wants to hold the s**t pot.

That’s true what the SDF representative said. The French merely said they would continue with helping the SDF against ISIS. The French didn’t say that would be an open ended commitment.
France like Turkey are in NATO. It’s unlikely the French will fight the Turks on behalf of the Kurds. Basically, the Kurds are between a rock and a hard place. And as on cue, the Kurds have once more been betrayed as they have been ever since the end of the Great War.
