The Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry on Friday condemned in the strongest terms "irresponsible statements" made by US President on the occupied Syrian Golan, the official SANA reported.

Trump remarks "will never change the fact that the Golan was and will always be a Syrian Arab territory", the ministry added in a statement.

"The US stance towards the occupied Syrian Golan clearly reflects its contempt for international legitimacy and its flagrant violation of international resolutions, especially UNSC Resolution No. 497 of 1981, which categorically rejects the decision of the Israeli occupation government and its arbitrary measures regarding the Golan and considers it null, void and has no legal effect".

"It is obvious to the whole world that the USA with its reckless policy governed by a mentality of domination and arrogance has become a main factor for tension at the international arena that is threatening the international peace and stability, which requires a serious stance by the world to put an end to the US arrogance and to reconsider the international legitimacy as well as to preserve peace, security and stability in the world," the statement read.
