US call for Israeli sovereignty on Golan 'contravenes international law': Iraqi foreign ministry tweet

Reuters , Saturday 23 Mar 2019

U.S. President Donald Trump's statement recognising Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights "contravenes international law," the Iraqi foreign ministry said on Twitter on Saturday.

Trump's statement on Thursday marked a dramatic shift in U.S. policy over the status of a disputed area that Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East conflict and annexed in 1981 - a move not recognized internationally.
