MOGHERINI: EU WILL NOT RECOGNIZE ISRAELI SOVEREIGNTY ON GOLAN HEIGHTS

High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the EU Commission Federica Mogherini said that ignoring United Nations Security Council resolutions on the Golan Heights was “not a solution”.

“Let me be very clear, the European Union will continue to not recognize Israeli sovereignty on territories occupied in 1967,” she told an Arab League summit in Tunis.

President Donald Trump signed a proclamation last week recognizing the Golan Heights as part of Israel, which annexed the area in 1981 after capturing it from Syria in 1967.

Arab leaders, long divided by regional rivalries, unanimously condemned President Trump’s decision on Sunday at the Arab League summit.
