President Donald Trump officially recognized Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights Monday in a ceremony with Benjamin Netanyahu. This is what US Vice-President Mike Pence declared, reports Bloomberg.
“The leaders of several generations would admit that Golan Heights are crucial for the strategic security of the State of Israel,” Pence said.
Netanyahu, who is facing difficult elections on 9 April, welcomed last week Trump’s statements that the time has come to recognize the Golan Heights as a part of Israel.
Although most Israelis have welcomed the news about Golan Heights, most consider it an obscene trick to interfere in the elections and defend Netanyahu.
