UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Britain said on Friday it was not planning to change its position on the Golan Heights after US President Donald Trump moved to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territory it seized from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war.

“The United Kingdom considers the Golan Heights a land occupied by Israel,” the Foreign Office spokesman said in a statement. The annexation of territory by force is prohibited in accordance with international law, including the Charter of the United Nations.”

“We did not recognize Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights in 1981 and we do not intend to change our position,” the statement said.
