Velayati: Trump's Remarks on Syrian Golan to Bolster Resistance against "Israel", Supporters

US President Donald Trump has only made the resistance front more resolute against the Israeli entity and its supporters following his remarks in recognition of Israel's "sovereignty" over the occupied Golan, says, Ali Akbar Velayati,  the senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

Velayati made the remarks in a Sunday statement in response to Trump's announcement.

  He emphasized that the recognition of Israel's "sovereignty" over the Syrian Golan is aimed at making "Israel" feel secure and it will undoubtedly add to regional problems and make the resistance front more resolute in fighting the Zionist entity and its supporters.

In his statement, Velayati said, "The Golan is an inseparable part of Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity."

According to Press TV, he added that the odd and undiplomatic move by the Trump administration violates international law as well as Syria's territorial integrity.

Trump seeks new wave of tension in MidEast: Amir-Abdollahian

On Saturday, Special Assistant to the Speaker of the Iranian Parliament for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said US President Donald Trump is seeking a new wave of tension in the Middle East with his controversial remarks on the occupied Syrian Golan.

“Trump is seeking to create a new wave of tension in the region, and his behavior and comments over the sensitive territorial issues such as Golan can bring the region under new military conditions and pose new threats against the Zionist regime,” IRIB quoted Special Assistant to the Speaker of the Iranian Parliament for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian as saying on Saturday.

His remarks were in reaction to Donald Trump’s new Twitter announcement that it was time for “the United States to fully recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan,”. The move has never been recognized by the international community, and Trump’s announcement has created an unprecedented wave of criticism from many countries, including the US closest allies.

The European Front for Solidarity with Syria in Spain said that Trump's statements on the Syrian Golan are null and illegal and they constitute an open interference in the affairs of a sovereign state.

These irresponsible statements are an attempt by the US administration to support the policy of judaizing and annexing  the occupied Arab lands.

Different Yemeni, Lebanese, Iraqi and Palestinian parties also condemned trump's statements stressing that they (the remarks) go against the rights and interests of the Syrian people. They asserted that the Golan has been and will continue to be a Syrian Arab land and that the US aggressive stances threaten the region's security and constitute a blatant aggression on the Arab nation.      

On Saturday, Russia, Iran, China, Germany, Japan, France, Britain, Cuba and many Arab countries also condemned Trump's remarks describing them as irresponsible and provocative and as being a serious threat to world peace and stability.
