The arrogant governments and leaders of the EU still do not want to cooperate with the Syrian government.

France asked number of times for Syrian intelligence reports on foreign fighters, and fighters who left Syria to the EU and other countries; in return the Syrian government asked for complete embassy exchange and recognition of the Syrian government, yet the arrogance of the French government denied the Syrian request, therefore the Syrian leadership denied the French request.

That was one example of many others.

We will not publish this fighter’s name, nor nationality for many reasons, but let’s just say he is in Homburg, Germany; and he is one of many.
