Iran speaker: Recognizing Golan occupation breach of int’l laws
Tehran, Iran Parliament speaker Ali Larijani condemned US President Donald Trump's act to recognize adding Golan Heights to Israel's occupied territories and described it as violation of international regulations.
Larijani described Trump's choice as against humanitarian principles, international laws and resolutions.
He deplored Trump's incompatibility with public opinion and world countries as a danger for peace and stability in the Middle East.
He also urged the international community and the Interparliamentary Union (IPU) to prevent another disaster from taking place in the region by taking serious measures.
Larijani underlined the fact that White House's illogical support for the racist regime of Israel is the main reason behind such tragic incidents like recent terrorist attacks in New Zealand.
He warned against religious confrontation which is spreading by special aims.
Trump tweeted on Thursday that after 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel's Sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Earlier, Syria condemned in the strongest terms irresponsible statements made by the US president on the occupied Syrian Golan, which confirms the United States blind bias to the Zionist occupation entity, stressing that these statements will never change the fact that the Golan was and will always be a Syrian Arab territory.
The US stance towards the occupied Syrian Golan clearly reflects its contempt for international legitimacy and its flagrant violation of international resolutions, especially the UNSC Resolution No. 497 of 1981, which categorically rejects the decision of the Israeli occupation government and its arbitrary measures regarding the Golan and considers it null and void and has no legal effect, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) quoted an official source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry as saying in a statement.
Meanwhile earlier, the spokesman of the Iranian Foreign Ministry Bahram Qasemi said that the impetuous personal decisions of US President Donald Trump is pushing the sensitive region of the Middle East toward consecutive crises.
He condemned occupying of lands in any form and added, 'The interventionist decision of the US president never changes the fact that the Golan Heights belong to Syria, rather it clearly shows the failure of compromising policies while proving the correctness of the path of resistance against the expansionist and aggressive conduct of the US and the Zionist regime.'
