Iran, Syria condemn Israeli aggression on Golan Heights

In a joint statement issued on Friday, presidents of Iran and Syria condemned the Israeli aggressions on Golan, criticizing the United States for recognizing the annexation of the Golan Heights, “which is a gross violation of the principles of the United Nations.”
They strongly condemned the aggression of the Israeli regime on the Syrian Arab Republic and considered it a destabilizing factor in the region. The two sides also emphasized that Syria reserves the legitimate right to respond to those aggressions in an appropriate way.
The two sides condemned the continued occupation of the Syrian Golan Heights by the occupying Israeli regime, as well as the regime’s decision to annex the Golan Heights, which is in contradiction with the principles of international law; the legal status of the Syrian Golan is considered to be occupied lands.
They also strongly condemned the U.S. government’s decision to recognize the annexation of the Golan Heights, which is a gross violation of the principles of the United Nations.
Elsewhere in the joint statement, the two presidents held in-depth talks that focused on ways to expand and strengthen mutual ties based on brotherly and strategic relations between the two states, as well as the latest developments in the region and the world.
The two sides also stressed the need to respect the national sovereignty, independence, and preservation of the territorial integrity of the two countries, according to the purposes and principles laid in the United Nations Charter.
They emphasized the significance of boosting mutual ties via the continuation of political, economic, and consular cooperation and other fields of cooperation, as well as the continuation of the exchange of high-ranking delegations between the two countries.
The two sides also expressed their readiness and willingness to take any action to develop commercial-economic ties between the two countries through existing mechanisms such as the Joint High Commission. They also stressed the existing bilateral cooperation in the field of reconstruction of the Syrian Arab Republic.
Voicing their satisfaction with the joint cooperation in fighting terrorism and extremism, the two sides emphasized the continuation of joint cooperation for the total annihilation of all terrorist groups.
