Russia says Trump call to recognise Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights is irresponsible - RIA

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry said on Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump’s call for Washington to recognise Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights was irresponsible, RIA news agency reported, quoting ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

Trump tweeted on Thursday it was time to recognise Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, territory that Israel seized from Syria in 1967.
