We appreciate these direct exchanges with representatives of civil society, in the absence of official diplomatic recognition. Despite our military cooperation with France in the framework of the international coalition, the deepening of relations in the civilian field remains lagging behind.

rakka is known for having been The capital of the Islamic state, the city from which several attacks, including those of Paris and Brussels, have been projected. Since jihadists have been hunted, in what state is the city?

The release of Rakka which was conducted by the Syrian democratic forces, with the support of the coalition, resulted in the almost total destruction of the city - 95% of the city center buildings were damaged or shaved. Vital infrastructure, such as water and electricity supply networks, have been edged. To make the city's new city again, we have benefited from minimal support from the international coalition, almost insignificant, however, with regard to destruction. It was therefore necessary for the new local authorities and the inhabitants to take control of rebuilding efforts themselves. Today, life is back in Rakka, with new inhabitants from areas controlled by the regime and regions occupied by Turkey and its mercenaries. Rakka was the capital of terrorism and obscurantism; She has become a house for all the Syrians who want to live in peace.

blockages remain in this respect in your relations with the international community?

When our sons and girls were fighting to take Rakka at the EI, we were the center of international attention. But since we hunted together this common enemy, we find ourselves virtually alone. This situation is linked to Turkey's position that Western countries do not want to put themselves out of dos. For its part, Ankara continues to asphyxiate by reducing the flow of the Euphrates. Our Western partners must put pressure on Turkey. In view of the sacrifices we have made, their current positioning is not up to it.
