Arab League supports Syria's sovereignty over Golan

The Arab League said on Thursday that its member countries will continue to support Syrian sovereignty over Golan Heights, Sputnik reported. The secretary-general of the regional organization Ahmed Aboul Gheit stated that the League will continue to treat Golan as occupied territory, adding that international law and the resolutions of the United Nations and the UN Security Council should be respected in this issue.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also warned the legitimization attempt could lead to more violence in the region, reiterating that territorial integrity remains as the "fundamental principle of international law."

Earlier today, United States President Donald Trump tweeted that it was time for Washington to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, after which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked the US for its support.
