The EU position remains unchanged; it does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, stated EU spokesperson Maja Kocijancic in her press release on March 21.
In response to the statement made by US President Donald Trump recognzing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights the EU is once again forced to reaffirm its position regarding the issue. International law does not consider the occupied Golan Heights to be part of Israel’s territory, stated the EU diplomatic service.
Israel occupied the Golan Heights in 1967 during the Six Day War. Before they were seized, these territories were part of Syria. On March 21, Trump posted a message on his Twitter page stating that he recognizes Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
