UN rejects US attempts to recognize Israeli authority over Golan Heights

The UN envoy to Syria Geir Pedersen rejected a new attempt by U.S. Republican senators to recognize Israel’s authority over the Golan Heights.

“Obviously the Security Council is very clear that the Golan is Syrian territory, and the first aspect of [Resolution] 2254 is, of course, the territorial integrity of Syria,” Pedersen told reporters at a Security Council briefing on Syria held on Thursday in New York.
