A French scholar, famous for his studies an Islam and the Middle East, Professor Jean-Pierre Filiu, commenting on the relationship between the PKK terrorist organization and its Syrian affiliate Democratic Union Party (PYD), which has opened offices in Germany and Sweden, said: "The PYD and PKK are two organizations that are intertwined. There is one headquarters for these two organizations, and it is in Qandil. The PKK and PYD are working hand-in-hand with the dictator Bashar Assad. The U.S. is making a big mistake by supporting the PYD."
Filiu was one of 10 independent experts who was appointed by former French President François Hollande to contribute to France's 2013 White Book for National Defense and Security, and has consulted French governments of both the left and the right over the past 30 years. The scholar was recently in Istanbul for a series of conferences that attracted great attention in Turkey. The well-known Middle East expert, promoting his new book "The New Middle East," spoke exclusively with A Haber's Duygu Leloğlu.
