Qatar stressed Friday its position that Golan Heights is an occupied Arab land, and strongly rejected any attempts to undermine international resolutions which confirm that Golan belongs to Syria and is occupied by Israel.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that Qatar stresses that aiding Israeli occupation undermine international resolutions related to occupied Golan Heights, particularly UN resolution No. 497 of 1981, will not change the fact that the land belongs to an Arab country and is under occupation, pointing out that Israel's imposition of its laws, jurisdiction and administration on Golan is void and without any legal effect.
The statement stressed that Israeli occupation must conform to the resolutions of international legitimacy and withdraw from all occupied Arab land, including Golan Heights.
The statement also stressed that any unilateral measures recognising Israel's sovereignty over the area represents a huge obstacle to peace.
