Syria rejects US statements on the occupied Golan Heights
Damascus, Jun 9 (Prensa Latina) Syria today roundly rejected recent statements by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on the Israeli-occupied Golan and reiterated that this territory is and will remain Syrian.
These statements come in the context of washington's continued and unlimited support for the occupying entity and its criminal aggressions, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement issued today.
It reaffirmed that history and international legitimacy confirm the Golan as Syrian Arab land and that the former US administration's recognition of the Israeli annexation constitutes further proof of its flagrant violation of international legitimacy and its resolutions and treaties.
Syria's struggle to regain its occupied lands by all available means is a legitimate right guaranteed by all international laws and charters, and U.S. officials cannot and will not be able to harm this right, he added.
According to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, it has become clear to the whole world that Israel is a usurper entity and its policy of expansion and aggression is the main cause of tensions and instability in the region, and is a serious threat to international security.
Foolish statements by U.S. officials will not be able to harm this right or influence Syria's insistence to regain its legitimate rights, the text concludes.
