Polyansky: Russia won’t recognize any Israeli attempt to impose control over occupied Syrian Golan

Moscow, SANA- Dmitry Polyanskiy, First Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations, has reiterated Russia’s stance in rejecting any Israeli attempt to seize the occupied Syrian Golan, stressing that Golan is a Syrian territory.

In a speech during a meeting of Security Council on Monday, Polyansky said that by 2026, the Israeli government plans to double the number of settlers in the occupied Golan and the West Bank. He asserted that “the Russian federation does not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan.”

It is noteworthy that the United Nations, in its resolutions, emphasizes the necessity of the complete withdrawal of Israeli occupation entity from the occupied Syrian Golan to the line of June 4, 1967, and the most recent of these resolutions was the two resolutions adopted by UN General Assembly on the 9th of last January.

Polyansky noted that the repeated Israeli acts of aggression on the Syrian territory, the latest of which was on Damascus International Airport, in addition to the crimes and violations of the entity against the Palestinian territory, have been carried out with the approval of the US.

He went on saying that the international community’s silence on the systematic violations of Palestinian rights is a clear example of the double standards policy which is adopted by Western countries towards human rights.
