Personal and rash decisions of Trump on the occupied Golan Heights will lead the critical region of the Middle East into successive crises, said Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi.

According to him, Israel does not have sovereignty over the Arab and Islamic lands, and its aggression and occupation must be stopped immediately, Mehr News reported

He recalled that the resolutions of the UN Security Council Golan are part of the Syrian land.

“There is no other solution to this than to end the occupation," the Iranian diplomat noted.

The decision of the US president on the Golan Heights does not change the nature of Syria’s sovereignty over the region, and it proves the failure of compromising policies while at the same time ratifying the right path of the Resistance Front against the aggressive and expansionist nature of the United States and the Zionist regime, he noted adding that “the Islamic Republic of Iran will closely monitor all future developments and will adopt appropriate policies in cooperation and consultation with the Syrian government and other countries.”

As reported earlier, Trump declared the need to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” He tweeted.

His tweet came as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Jerusalem.

After Donald Trump made the announcement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted: "At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, President Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Thank you President Trump!”

Israel seized much of the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War.
