Capitals, SANA- Canadian Foreign Ministry of Monday expressed rejection of US President Donald Trump’s recognition of annexing occupied Syrian Golan to the Israeli occupation entity.

The Ministry’s Spokesman Ahmad al-Sahhaf said in a statement that “Iraq supports the international legitimacy resolutions which stipulate for ending the occupation.”
