President Trump’s decision on the Golan Heights

March 27th 2019

US President Donald Trump has signed a presidential proclamation recognising the Golan Heights as Israeli territory. This decision is contrary to fundamental principles of international law and to specific resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council on the Middle East, emphasising the “inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war and the need to work for a just and lasting peace in which every State in the area can live in security”.

The Socialist International will continue to be engaged in fully supporting the two-State solution for Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security, as we are equally committed to contributing to a future of peace, democracy and freedom for the people of Syria.
