Macron: Recognition of Israeli sovereignty over occupied Golan is contrary to international law

 The French President Emmanuel Macron rejected on Friday Washington's decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

AFP has quoted from Macron when he met Jordan's King Abdullah II in Paris saying: "The recognition of the Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan is contrary to the international law and will only fuel regional tensions."

The French President Emmanuel Macron reiterated his country's rejection of Washington's decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights in Paris during his meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah II, as Elysee Palace said in a statement.

Macron and Jordanian monarch discussed regional crises, in particular the Syrian file and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

According to the Elysee statement, "The two leaders reminded their adherence to a political solution to the Syrian crisis, as a single way to quell the instability that today is represented by this crisis for the region and Europe."

Macron also said that the solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict "passes through the recognition of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace, within recognized and secure borders, considering Jerusalem as their capital."
