Foreign Ministry in Response to Trump's Decision: The Whole Universe Can't Change the Historical Fact That the Golan Was and Will Remain Syrian

Damascus, (ST) - Syria affirmed its absolute and unequivocal rejection of the decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize the annexation of the occupied Syrian Golan to the Zionist entity, pointing out that the decision represents the highest degree of contempt for international legitimacy and a humiliating slap to the international community.

An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants said in a statement to SANA on Monday: "The American president to recognize the annexation of the occupied Syrian Golan to the Zionist entity in a blatant attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and in disregard of all international reactions denounced this decision. This decision comes to reflect the organic alliance between the United States and "Israel" in the deep-rooted hostility to the Arab nation, which makes the United States the main enemy of the Arabs through the unlimited support and protection provided by successive US administrations of the Israeli entity.

The US president's decision represents the highest degree of contempt for international legitimacy and an insulting slap to the international community

"The US president's decision represents the highest degree of contempt for international legitimacy and a disgraceful slap to the international community. It also makes the United Nations lose its standing and credibility through the blatant American violation of its resolutions on the occupied Syrian Golan, particularly resolution 497 of 1981, which affirms the legal status of the Syrian Golan as occupied territory, and rejects the annexation decision to the Israeli entity and considers it void and had no legal effect," the source added

The American president does not have the right and the legal capacity to legitimize the occupation and the usurpation of the territory of others by force. This American aggressive policy makes the region and the world vulnerable to all dangers and devotes an approach to international relations that makes peace, stability and security in the world exposed to storms," the source said.

"The international community, fed up with the American president's superiority manner and the hegemonic and arrogant mentality that governs US policy, has a primary responsibility to reject the irresponsible and aggressive policies of the US administration in defense of international legitimacy and the maintenance of international peace and security," the source clarified.

The liberation of the occupied Golan by all available means and its return to the motherland, Syria, is an irreplaceable right

The source pointed out that "the American decision on the occupied Syrian Arab Golan, the recognition of occupied Jerusalem as the capital of the occupying entity and the transfer of the US Embassy to it, the efforts of the United States to liquidate the Palestinian cause through the conspiracy of the deal of the century and the conspiracy on Arab rights and interests confirms that no one in the Arab nation is safe from the evils of America which requires the Arabs take a serious historical stand to overcome the poor Arab reality and protect the dignity of the nation and defend its existence, rights and interests.

"The Syrian Arab Republic, declaring the absolute and unequivocal rejection of the American decision, affirms with great force that the entire universe can't change the timeless historical fact that the Golan was and will remain an Arab Syrian. The liberation by all available means and its return to the motherland, Syria, is an irreplaceable right. The determination of the Syrians to achieve this goal is today more solid than ever with the same will and determination in which the Syrians defeated the terrorist aggression and the same spirit that achieved the great victory in Tishreen," the source said.

"The Syrians over the Syrian motherland and as they were constantly, today they emphasize facing the black decision of the President of the United States on their solidarity with our steadfast resistance people in the occupied Syrian Golan, share with them the bitterness of the occupation and aggression and share their resolve and determination to defeat aggression and liberate the occupied Golan. The national day meeting on the pure soil of the Golan, liberated from the atrocity of occupation, is closer to what the enemy, the usurper and its supporters think," the source concluded.
