Campaign Official Says Biden Would Keep Golan Heights Recognition

A senior Biden campaign official told the Jewish News Syndicate that a Biden administration would not reverse President Trump’s 2019 decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in 1967 and annexed the territory in 1981, a move that was not internationally recognized. President Trump’s decision broke with the international community.

“I don’t think a Biden administration would reverse that,” the unnamed campaign official said. “It was de facto recognized anyway. It was largely symbolic. It didn’t really change the calculus either by the United States or Israel or any of the neighboring nations.”
