Lavrov rejects Israeli sovereignty in Golan

“The status of the Golan Heights is determined by the resolutions of the UN Security Council,” Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov told reporters in Moscow, after Prime MIniser Binyamin Netanyahu said the international community should recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the enclave, asserting that Russian President Vladimir Put5in appreciates its important for Israel. Lavrov refuted this, saying. “Changing this status bypassing the Security Council, from my perspective, would be a direct violation of these resolutions.”
