IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, March 25, IRNA -- Syrian Foreign Ministry said that in a flagrant aggression on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic, the US President has recognized the annexation of the occupied Syrian Golan to the Zionist occupation entity.

The act comes as an embodiment of the organic coalition between the US and Israel in the severe hostility to the Arab nation which makes the US as the main enemy of the Arabs though the unlimited support and protection offered by the US successive administrations to the Israeli usurper entity, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) quoted an official source in the Syrian foreign ministry as saying .

According to a statement released by Syrian foreign ministry, Damascus believes that even whole world will not be able to change this historical fact that Golan belongs to Syria.

The US decision indicates US hostility against Arab world, the statement said, adding that Washington proved that it is the most important enemy of the Arab world.

The Syrian ministry described the US president's choice as indication of vivid aggression and close alliance between Washington and the Zionist regime of Israel.

Trump tweeted on Thursday that after 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel's Sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Earlier, Spokesman of the Iranian Foreign Ministry Bahram Qasemi said that the impetuous personal decisions of US President Donald Trump is pushing the sensitive region of the Middle East toward consecutive crises.

He condemned occupying of lands in any form and added, 'The interventionist decision of the US president never changes the fact that the Golan Heights belong to Syria, rather it clearly shows the failure of compromising policies while proving the correctness of the path of resistance against the expansionist and aggressive conduct of the US and the Zionist regime.'

Meanwhile earlier, Iran Parliament speaker Ali Larijani condemned President Trump's act to recognize adding Golan Heights to Israel's occupied territories and described it as violation of international regulations.

Larijani described Trump's choice as against humanitarian principles, international laws and resolutions.

He deplored Trump's incompatibility with public opinion and world countries as a danger for peace and stability in the Middle East.

He also urged the international community and the Inter-parliamentary Union (IPU) to prevent another disaster from taking place in the region by taking serious measures.
