Mustafa: Golan Heights is Syrian Territory; US Latest Remarks are Violation of Int’l Resolutions
President of the Syrian Coalition, Abdurrahman Mustafa, warned of the repercussions of the US’s recognition of the Golan Heights as part of the Israeli entity, stressing that it is an “occupied Syrian land.”
Speaking to the Anadolu news agency, President Mustafa said: “We always emphasize the unity and integrity of the Syrian territory and that the Golan Heights is part of Syria that is occupied by the Israeli occupation. International resolutions are clear in this regard.”
President Mustafa pointed out that the US latest statements about the Golan Heights “constituted a violation of the international resolutions. The Syrian people want to preserve the Syrian land and we will maintain the sovereignty of Syria over all its territory.”
President Mustafa stressed that the US position “will not contribute to security, peace and stability in the region as he warned that chaos will continue. Reneging on this position is very necessary as it violates international law.”
President Mustafa’s remarks came in response to US President Donald Trump’s signing on the decision to recognize the sovereignty of the Zionist entity over the entire Golan Heights which has been occupied since 1967.
Trump's decision was met with widespread condemnation and rejection by many countries and the United Nations. These included British Foreign Ministry, the Turkish Foreign Minister, spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, the European Union, Arab countries, and Secretary-General of the Arab League.
