Iran’s High Council of Human Rights in a statement deplored US President Donald Trump's unilateral recognition of Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights in Syria as “blatant violation of the UN Charter".

RNA - "Last week, the international community once again witnessed a blatant violation of international regulations and principles on the one hand and increasing hatred and insecurity in West Asia on the other hand by the two-man team of Trump and Netanyahu,” the human rights statement said.

According to the statement, the US president’s recent act is in violation of two articles of the UN Charter on Syria’s sovereignty over Golan Heights and also violates different UNSC resolutions, including Resolutions 242 and 497 which refuse to recognize "Zionist regime’s sovereignty over lands occupied after June 1967, including Golan Heights".

The statement warned that this illegal act can exacerbate the violation of human rights of the residents of Golan Heights and nearby lands and trigger instability in West Asia.

According to Fars News Agancy, it called on the United Nations and other international and regional organizations, including Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the whole regional states to condemn the US act and take firm action to protect the rights of the Syrian government and nation.

The statement came amid an international uproar about Trump’s provocative decision to recognize "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.
