"The French president expressed his full support for the region and made a decision during the meeting to allocate a sum of money for the reconstruction of the infrastructure, supporting the process of economic and social stability and positive reflections on the humanitarian situation in the north and east of Syria. "

One of the points discussed was the question of border security. He spoke about the content of the discussion on this point by saying: "The issue of border security with the Turkish state was raised during the meeting and the emphasis on prevention of attacks on the areas of DAA, it was one of our demands, which was developed as a forum for discussion, and the French government responded positively to prevent these threats to our regions. "
