Gulf Arab Allies, Iran Reject U.S. Recognition Of Israel's Claim To Golan Heights
According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, Washington’s Gulf Arab allies, along with regional foe Iran, condemned US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait reportedly criticized Monday's move to recognize Israel's 1981 annexation of what they claim is occupied Arab land.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said, “No one could imagine that a person in America comes and gives land of a nation to another occupying country, against international laws and conventions."
