Syria considers that it has legitimate rights over the Golan region illegally occupied by Israel since 1967.
Syria on Wednesday rejected statements by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken regarding the Syrian Golan which is occupied by Israel, and reiterated that this is and will continue to be its territory.
According to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, Blinken's pronouncements are part of Washington's continued and unlimited support for the occupying entity and its criminal aggressions.
Furthermore, the Foreign Ministry ratified that history and international legitimacy reaffirm the Golan as Syrian Arab land and that the former President Donald Trump's administration's recognition of Israel's annexation is a further sign of its flagrant violation of international legitimacy and its resolutions and treaties.
Syria is waging a struggle to regain its occupied lands by all available means and considers it its legitimate right guaranteed by all international laws and charters. He further stressed that the US officials cannot and will not be able to harm this right.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, it is clear to the whole world that Israel is a usurper entity and its policy of expansion and aggression is the main cause of tensions and instability in the region, and is a serious threat to international security.
