Saudi Arabia, as well as the UN and EU states, recently denounced the decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the territory of the Golan Heights.
Saudi King Salman has addressed Trump’s move over the Golans, stressing that the kingdom “absolutely rejects” any measure that would hinder Syrian sovereignty over the territory.
Speaking in front of the Arab League in Tunis, he once again reiterated the country’s position on other disputed territories, such as the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem, voicing his support for the establishment of a Palestinian state.
The same stance has been expressed by the Tunisian president, who underlined that the summit should convey the importance of establishing a Palestinian state in order to achieve any regional stability.
Some of the countries participating in the Arab League summit, as well as Syria and EU member states, have denounced the US move, stressing that it contradicts international law.
Last month the Syrian Arab Army solidified its hold over its side of the occupied Golan after pushing back (into Israel) and defeating al-Qaeda and ISIS groups who had held the Quneitra area for years prior during the Syrian war.
Israel uses the same policy over the Jordanian West Bank, annexed by the Zionist regime. The end goal is to created the Greater Israel from the Jordan River to the Euphrates River in Syria.
