On Tuesday, the UAE has expressed disappointment and condemnation over the decision of UAE Administration that it has recognized the jurisdiction over Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

A statement was issued yesterday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and international cooperation which said that the move of the US will definitely interrupt the possibility of reaching a just and comprehensive peace in the region.

The ministry has emphasized saying, “Regional stability and peace will never be possible as long as Israel continues its occupation of Palestinian and Arab territories,” and added that the occupied Golan Heights are categorically Arab and Syrian territories and the US decision does not change this fact.

The Ministry further stated the importance of adhering to the Security Council resolutions No.242 of 1967 and No. 497 of 1981 as well as the principles in the Arabic peace initiative. “Today, aggressive action by Iran and terrorist groups in southern Syria, including Hezbollah, continue to make the Golan Heights a potential launching ground for attacks against Israel – very violent attacks,” Trump said in a statement.
