UN Security Council Condemns President Trump’s Recognition of Israeli Sovereignty in the Golan Heights

The United Nations Security Council met Wednesday in an emergency meeting to discuss and to condemn the U.S. for recently recognizing Israel’s sovereignty in Golan.

According to CBN News, Syria’s mission to the U.N. called President Donald Trump’s decision a “flagrant violation of the relevant Security Council’s resolutions.”

Fourteen states at the meeting condemned the U.S. decision.

In 1967, Israel took Golan Heights from Syria. It was annexed in 1981, but soon after the U.N. Security Council voted, saying in a resolution that Israel’s claim of sovereignty over the area was “null and void and without international legal effect.”

Then last week, President Trump declared that the area was under Israel’s sovereignty.

Russia also criticized the decision Wednesday evening.

“If anybody feels any temptation to follow this poor example, we would urge them to refrain from this aggressive revision of international law,” Russia’s deputy ambassador Vladimir Safronkov said.
