Turkey finds the United States' recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights unacceptable and will take action against the decision, including at the United Nations, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday.

US President Donald Trump signed a decree on Monday at the start of a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, recognising Israeli sovereignty over territory that Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war.
