The world community does not share the position of US President Donald Trump on the Golan Heights - the mountain range, partly occupied as a result of the military conflict in 1967, and annexed by Israel in 1981.

On the eve of the White House in his Twitter expressed the opinion that the time had come for the United States to recognize the jurisdiction of Israel in this territory, the rights to which also Syria claims.

Trump later explained this desire with considerations of regional security, rather than a desire to support Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the April 9 elections to the Israeli parliament.

A number of states have already refused to follow the lead of the United States.

In particular, the representative of the German government, Ulrike Demmer, said that Berlin’s position on the Golan issue was unchanged.

"The government’s position on the Golan heights has not changed and is in line with the resolutions of the UN Security Council, especially resolution No. 497 of 1981," she said, recalling that this document invalidates Israeli annexation.

After that, in the French Foreign Ministry Trump's aspiration was called a contradiction to the norms of international law.

"Recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, the occupied territory, would be contrary to international law, in particular the obligation of states not to recognize the illegal situation," the diplomatic speaker said, recalling that Paris does not recognize the annexation of the mountains.

In addition, the representative of the European Union told Reuters that the community as a whole also continues to consider the Golan Heights as part of Syria.

A similar position was reported in the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Persian Gulf. In addition, Abdel Latif bin Rashid al-Zayani, the organization’s secretary general, expressed regret at Trump’s position, adding that it "undermines the chances of achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East."

Russia and Turkey supported the general line. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that “this idea in no way contributes to the goals and objectives of a Middle East settlement, rather the opposite,” and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Trump’s statement “annoying,” noting that it “put the region on the verge of a new crisis ".

In fact, the only leader who supported the idea of the American president was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He thanked Donald Trump for his support, calling his decision the right one.

Recall, on December 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and ordered the American embassy to be moved there.

Earlier, we also wrote about Benjamin Netanyahu’s tough statement against Iran, who said that his country was acting against that country in Syria, threatening to strike back in the event of an attack on Israel.
