Turkey - SMART

France said that they agree with the US in that the Turkish military attack on Manbij (84 kilometers east of Aleppo), Northern Syria, is “unacceptable.” The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) currently control the city.

The Elysee reported that France will not participate in any military operation in Northern Syria outside the framework set by the International Alliance against the Islamic State. France will continue to support the SDF in its aim of stabilizing the region.

France assured that they will continue to fight ISIS along with the SDF, as they are concerned about its resurgence in the area, especially at the Iraqi-Syrian borders, according to Reuters.  

The French Presidency reported that the French President, Emmanuel Macron, hopes to hold a dialogue between Turkey and the SDF, under the auspices of France and the International Community.

The statements from the French President came a day after the President received an SDF delegation in Paris. The president commended what he called the sacrifices of the SDF, and the critical role they have played against ISIS.

The French President has previously warned of the shift in the Turkish operation, from being against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Afrin, Northwestern Aleppo, to being an invasion of the country. The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs considered the French President’s statements an insult.
