Dhaka, Mar 27 (UNB) – Bangladesh has expressed its deep concern over the recent announcement of the US recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
“This is a clear violation of the Charter of the United Nations, principles of international law and relevant Security Council Resolutions,” said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement on Wednesday.
It said Bangladesh has always urged the occupying State of Israel to immediately halt its actions to alter legal, physical and demographic status of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights in accordance with the Security Council Resolution 497.
“Bangladesh believes that changing the status of occupied Syrian Golan Heights by the US bypassing the Security Council is a direct violation of the UN decisions,” the statement reads.
Bangladesh said it maintains its principled position on a comprehensive solution to the Middle-East question in accordance with the relevant Security Council Resolutions, the Arab peace initiative and the quartet roadmap.
