UN Blasts US For Recognising Israeli Sovereignty Over Golan

The United States came under sharp criticism from 14 other UN Security Council nations for its decision to recognise Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights in violation of international law, Aljazeera reports. 

The Security Council met on Wednesday at the request of Syria, which in a letter to the council called the American move a "flagrant violation" of UN resolutions.

Speaker after speaker at the council session supported Syria's sovereignty over the Golan Heights and opposed Israel's annexation after Trump's proclamation.

"This unilateral action does nothing to assist in finding a long-term peaceful solution to the conflict in the Middle East," South Africa's UN Ambassador Jerry Matjila said.

Syria's closest ally, Russia, urged governments to continue to view the Golan Heights as Israeli-occupied territory.
