Syria reaffirms its right to restore entire occupied Golan

New York, Jan. 20 (YPA) – Syria reiterated its firm commitment to its right to restore the entire occupied Golan by all available means guaranteed by international law, stressing that all Israeli occupation measures to change its features or impose its mandate on it were null and void and had no legal effect under international law and United Nations resolutions.

In his briefing during a UN Security Council session on Wednesday on the “Situation in the Middle East”,   Syria’s permanent representative to the UN, Ambassador Bassam Sabbagh said that it is deplorable that the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wennesland did not included in his reports the Israeli colonial activities in the occupied Syrian Golan and its other practices in it, in addition to ignoring the Israeli repeated aggression on the Syrian lands, the most recent of which was the Israeli aggression on Lattakia commercial port, which caused huge material losses.

Sabbagh pointed out that Syria sent several letters to the UN Secretary-General and its envoy for the Middle East to inform them of the developments on the situation in the occupied Syrian Golan and warn them against the danger of Israeli repeated aggressions on the stability of Syria and the region.
