Syrian Envoy Urges UN to Condemn Trump’s Statement on Golan Heights

The UN Security Council should condemn US President Donald Trump’s statement calling for the recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari said in a statement on Friday.

Trump said via Twitter on Thursday that the time has come for the United States to fully recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“We call the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the Security Council and the General Assembly to condemn President Trump’s statement and to take all the necessary steps to ensure the implementation of the relevant resolutions in order to maintain peace, security and stability in the world,” Jaafari told reporters.

Jaafari said that he expects France’s Ambassador to the United Nations Francois Delattre, who is now presiding over the UN Security Council, to take “firm steps” in condemning Trump’s statement.
