Iran welcomed the final statement of the Arab League summit in Tunisia endorsing Syria’s sovereignty over the ‘Israeli’-occupied Golan Heights.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Sunday that the Arab League’s move to support Syria’s territorial integrity on the occupied Golan Heights was a “positive and promising” step in the face of efforts by the United States to legitimize ‘Israel’s’ occupation of the area.

“...We believe that the Muslim world should continue to prioritize the issue of the occupation of the Arab-Muslim lands by the illegitimate ‘Israeli’ regime,” Qassemi said in a statement.

The comments came amid an international uproar about US President Donald Trump’s provocative decision to recognize a so-called ‘Israeli’ sovereignty over Syria’s Golan Heights.

In 1967, ‘Israel’ waged a full-scale war against Arab territories, during which it occupied some two-thirds of Syria’s Golan Heights and annexed the region four years later, a move never recognized by the international community.
