France says Trump's Golan Heights move would violate international law

France sought to make clear on Friday that it does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and that President Trump’s intention to do so would violate international law.

“The Golan is a territory occupied by Israel since 1967. France does not recognize the Israeli annexation of 1981,” the French Foreign Ministry said in a daily briefing, according to Reuters.

“The recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan, occupied territory, would be contrary to international law, in particular the obligation for states not to recognize an illegal situation.”
