According to Assad , at present, such attempts continue in the framework of cooperation. Assad also accused the CIA of killing the founder of White Helmets, James Le Mezure.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said he was offering the Kurds to fight the “Turkish invaders” together. according to reports.
Assad said that the first such proposal was made after the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Turkey and Russia on October 22.
