Erdoğan said U.S. President Donald Trump asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to come the U.S. and signed a proclamation on the GolanHeights because of the elections in Israel, implying that Trump's move was made to ensure more electoral support for Netanyahu.
He said the GolanHeights completely belongs to Syria according to UN resolutions and the U.S. is attempting to give this territory to Israel.
"You do not have jurisdiction or a right like that," Erdoğan stressed.
Erdoğan said the U.S. move on the GolanHeights is not recognized by the European Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Russia or China.
"Speaking the truth with courage is our duty," he said.
Erdoğan added that Turkey, as the term president of the OIC, responded to the U.S. move on the GolanHeights and will also respond in the future.
On March 25, Trump signed a presidential proclamation officially recognizing the GolanHeights as Israeli territory.
The UN said the GolanHeights is still considered an “occupied territory” under international law, despite Trump's announcement.
