UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — US officials are preparing an official document recognizing Washington’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and is likely to be signed by US President Donald Trump next week, a senior administration official said on Friday.

Trump announced Thursday that it was time for the United States to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Israel occupied the region from Syria in the 1967 Middle East War.

The official said Trump was likely to sign the presidential document during Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Washington next week.
