Moscow, SANA_ Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stressed that imposing Israeli laws on the occupied Syrian Golan is rejected according to international laws.
During a press conference Thursday, Zakharova said that “Russia takes a principled stance on the issue of Syria’s ownership of the Golan Heights. That was confirmed by the 1981 UN Security Council Resolution 497. Our approach to Israel’s illegal decision to extend its sovereignty to the Golan Heights has remained unchanged. Changing the Golan Heights’ status bypassing the Security Council is a direct violation of UN decisions.”
She reiterated that US illegitimate military presence in Syria hampers the fight against terrorism in the country.
