SULAIMANI — A French delegation of researchers visited Rojava [Kurdish-controlled areas of Syria] on Monday (August 8) seeking to open a center for culture and art in the Jazira canton.

According to Hawar News Agency, the French delegation and the People’s Municipality Board in Rojava signed a contract to open the center in the Kurdish and French languages in order to bring the cultures of Rojava and France together.

The French delegation was accompanied by a representative from the Democratic Autonomous Administration in the city of Amude in Jazira Canton in the north of Syria.

Partes Fransesky, a member of the French delegation, said the project would bring the cultural and intellectual aspects of Rojava and France together.

“it‘s obligatory for the people of Rojava to evolve from a military point of view to a political, cultural, and intellectual,” Fransesky continued. “There is a common will that helps both sides to serve the struggle of freedom.”

The Syrian Kurdish Democratic Autonomous Administration opened a representative office on May 23 in Paris.

A delegation from Paris 8 University visited the representative office of the Democratic Autonomous Administration in Paris on July 4 to discuss the opening of a branch of the university in Rojava.

The northern part of Syria with a heavy Kurdish population is known as Rojava by many Kurds, also called “Western Kurdistan,” referring to greater parts of Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Syria.
