Al-Jaafari: Regaining the occupied Golan is a priority for Syria

New York, Syria’s permanent representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, reiterated that the occupied Golan is an integral part of the Syrian Arab Republic’s territories, adding that regaining Golan, until June 4th, 1967 line, with all means guaranteed by the internal law, will remain a priority for Syria.

“The UN, under pressure by some permanent members at Security Council, remained failure to put its resolutions, relevant to ending the Israeli occupation of the Arab lands, into effect, particularly resolutions No. /242, 338 and 497/,” al-Jaafari added in a speech to the UN Security Council on the situation in the Middle East via video.

He affirmed that the UN failure has encouraged some countries to try to disavowal from legal commitment, and seek to change facts, like the provocative actions of the US proclamations to announce the occupied Jerusalem as capital of the Israeli occupation, then its proclamation about the occupied Syrian Golan.

Al-Jaafari renewed Syria’s stance, along with the majority of UN member states, to condemn those proclamations and consider them as a mere unilateral action that is issued by a side who has no political, moral or legal capacity to determine the destiny of the world peoples or to dispose in lands which are part and parcel of Syria and Palestine.

He pointed out to the Israeli occupation’s latest aggression, through directed missiles, on Syrian territories form over Lebanese territories, stressing that these attacks come to raise the morale of the remaining terrorists in a flagrant violation of UN relevant resolutions and the disengagement agreement of 1974.
