Lebanese leader draws Moscow’s attention to Golan Heights dispute

The Trump administration’s recognition of the Golan Heights as part of Israel undermines the foundations of international law, Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun stated during talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin, expressing hope that a solution to this problem will be found soon. According to the Lebanese leader, Washington’s actions have sparked the ire of other countries in the region. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov added that this clearly has negative consequences both from the point of view of the Middle East peace process and the general atmosphere for the peace process in Syria.
