"In the long-term prospect, Trump's action confirms that international legitimacy no longer exists. International law was killed with Trump's pen as well, when he signed off on violence against the Golan," Syrian Information Minister Imad Sara told Sputnik.
The minister noted that modern media must expose the real international terrorism that is practiced by the "politics and journalism of Western empires." According to the Syrian minister, media should instead focus on the Arab and Syrian identity of the Golan Heights.
"Trump's strategy is not a far-sighted one. On the contrary, it is designed for a short period ... in order to support Netanyahu in the elections, with some having perceived Trump's actions as the killing of the Israeli opposition," Sara indicated.
The minister stressed that Damascus would not give up its right to return all territories belonging to Syria, and the Golan Heights was no exception.
