Pakistan strongly responds against US decision

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has strongly opposed and condemned US decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over Syrian Golan Heights.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said the decision represents a serious violation of UN Charter, international law and UN Security Council Resolutions.

He said Pakistan calls upon the UN Security Council to take cognizance of this situation and take steps in accordance with the UN Charter.
