Syria calls for the end of Israeli occupation of Golan, stresses its sovereign right on occupied Golan

New York- Syria’s permanent representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, reiterated that Syria calls on the UN to take urgent measures to put its resolutions into force and end the Israeli occupation of the Arab territories, affirming that Syria’s sovereign right on Golan is non-negotiable, inalienable and can’t be prescribed.

Al-Jaafari added during a session for the UN General Assembly on the situation in the Middle East that the General Assembly always calls on the Israeli occupation entity to end its occupation of Syrian Golan, but the international community’s inability to put its relevant resolutions into effect has doubled the obstacles standing in the way of achieving peace in the region.

He said that one of those obstacles is the US Administration proclamations regarding Golan and Jerusalem.

Al-Jaafari renewed Syria’s condemnation of the US administration’s proclamations as flagrant violations of the international law and UN charter.

“One of the principles of the International legitimacy is that the UN General Assembly has to call, in each session, on Israel to end its occupation of the occupied Syrian Golan and stress that any procedures taken by Israel to force its custody and administration on Golan are illegal, null and void, and they have no impact in light of resolution No. 497 of 1981,” al-Jaafari added.

He reiterated Syria’s permanent and principled stance in support of the Palestinian people’s right in self-determination and establishing their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital and the right of refugees to return Home in light of resolution No.194 for 1948.
