Two political leaders of the Syrian Kurdish alliance battling the Islamic State group are to visit Paris on Friday for talks on the planned US military withdrawal from Syria, an alliance representative said.

"The two co-chairs of the Syrian Democratic Council (MSD) Riad Darar and Ilham Ahmed are expected in Paris," said Khaled Issa, referring to the political arm of the US-backed Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

French President Emmanuel Macron's office confirmed that Kurdish representatives would hold talks in Paris, though it was not immediately known at what level.
