Syrian Kurds open 'mission' in Paris

Syrian Kurds, who in March unilaterally proclaimed the creation of a federal region in northern Syria, on Monday opened a representative office in central Paris with several celebrities attending the launch. The office is not officially recognised by the French foreign ministry which views the opposition Syrian National Council as the “legitimate” representative of the Syrian people. The launch of the Rojava office — the name of the self-proclaimed federal region — was attended by former French foreign minister and Doctors Without Borders co-founder Bernard Kouchner, philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy and other leading Parisian figures.
