Turkey president says to file issue of Golan Heights to UN

"If we're going to talk about Syria, I think it's important for me to thank President Trump for recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights", Dermer said, The Hill reported. He recognized that the Golan Heights is legitimately now a part of Israel.

It also set them firmly against a peace plan Washington says it will present after the Israeli ballot.

According to the UN Charter Israel's seizure of the Golan violates the principle that acquisition of territory by force is illegal while the colonisation of occupied territory is branded illegal by the Fourth Geneva Convention. Some 27,000 Syrians are still living on the annexed land.

Syria and other states in the region condemned Trump's pledge, saying it violates worldwide law. The Golan overlooks both Israel and Syria, and offers a commanding military vantage.

Recent reports indicate that Trump's administration is preparing an official document recognizing Israeli control over the Golan to be signed during a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday.

The reason he did so was a "state secret", he told Channel 12, adding that he had informed the attorney general as to why, an assertion Israel's top judge was quick to deny to Israeli media.

"I have to smash the wave of lies spread by (Benny) Gantz and (Yair) Lapid and (Moshe) Yaalon and (Gabi) Ashkenazi", Netanyahu said of the leaders of the centrist Blue and White electoral alliance. The Prime Minister will also attend the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Two new developments in the corruption saga threaten to overshadow Netanyahu's three-day trip. "It took us 52 years to do that, and I think it will formally be declared, that diplomatic victory, tomorrow at the White House, and the people of Israel are very grateful to President Trump". It confirms his standing as Israel's best friend in the US, which will help him with evangelists and Jewish supporters of Israel as the USA heads into its own presidential campaign in 2020.

The prime minister said he will meet leaders of Congress during the visit. Netanyahu opposes any deal and has stepped up Israeli colonisation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem to make it impossible to create a Palestinian entity in these areas.

Trump relies on pro-Israel evangelical Christians in the United States as part of his electoral base and has moved U.S. policy firmly in Israel's favour - most notably by declaring Jerusalem Israel's capital in 2017.
