OIC Condemns Recognition by the US of “Israeli Sovereignty” over Occupied Syrian Golan

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation condemned the recognition by the US Administration of “Israeli sovereignty” over the occupied Syrian Golan. It considered that this decision was designed to perpetuate a fait accompli and legitimize the Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights. It further stressed that this measure constitutes an explicit violation of the international law and the relevant UN resolutions, particularly UN Security Council resolutions 242 (1967) and 497 (1981).

The OIC General Secretariat underlined that the US decision does not alter the legal status of the Syrian Golan Heights as an occupied Arab Syrian land, in line with the international law and the relevant UN resolutions.

The OIC General Secretariat urged all states of the world to respect the international legality resolutions and not to recognize any measure which is inconsistent with them in this regards.
