Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) , Mon, Mar 25, 2019

An official source at the Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed Kuwait's regret over the US decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights.

The source said in a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday, that this decision is in violation of international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, especially resolution 497, which demanded Israel to rescind its decision of annexation of the Syrian Golan Heights and decided it is null and void and without international legal effect.

The source pointed out that such decisions undermine the comprehensive peace process in the Middle East and threatens security and stability in the region. The source also affirmed the State of Kuwait's position that calls for a comprehensive and just solution to the Palestinian issue based on international resolutions, the Arab peace initiative and the two-State solution.
