US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that it is time for the US to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, he wrote on Twitter.
“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!”
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Israel, visiting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Last week, US senator Lindsey Graham said he would push a bill in Congress to recognize Israeli control over the heights. He was there alongside Netanyahu and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.
