UN REJECTS US MOVE TO RECOGNIZE GOLAN ANNEXATION BY ISRAEL

United States special envoy for Syria Mr . Geir o. Pedersen has insisted on Syria’s sovereignty over the Golan heights, he rejected  US congressional motion to recognize Israel’s possessing the occupied territory.

Mr. Pedersen stated this in a security council briefing on Syria held in New York. He said the security council is very clear that the Golan is Syrian territory, and the first part of  the [resolution] 2254 is of course the territorial integrity of Syria.

This statement is in response to a question regarding a bill introduced by republican members of the US congress which seeks to recognize Syria’s Golan heights as Israeli territory.

Senators Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton as well as representative Mike Gallagher, cites concerns about what the lawmakers call ” a threat posed by iran”.

 Israeli officials have long pressed for US recognition of the tel aviv regime’s sovereignty claims over the territory, which was seized from syria in 1967.
