Russia denounces Pompeoís visit to occupied Golan as Ďprovocationí

Russia has censured as "a provocation" a contentious visit by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the Israeli-occupied side of Syriaís Golan Heights, saying the Arab countryís sovereignty and territorial integrity should be respected.

Vasily Nebenzya, the Russian ambassador to the United Nations (UN), made the comments during a meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in Syria on Wednesday, Russiaís Sputnik news agency reported.

"We continuously call for keeping Syriaís unity and respecting its sovereignty and territorial integrity and the abandonment of plots to divide and prolong the crisis in the country," Nebenzya said.

He said "this applies to both eastern and western Syria, including the occupied Syrian Golan, and the visit by a high-ranking US official is a provocation," in an apparent reference to Pompeo.

Last Thursday, Pompeo became the first US secretary of state to visit the Israeli occupied Golan Heights, a territory the Israeli regime seized from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War and annexed four years later, in a move that was never recognized by the world community.

In a major pro-Israel policy shift, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order in 2019 recognizing Israelís control over occupied Golan in a blatant violation of international law.

Over the past decades, Israel has built dozens of settlements in the Golan Heights in defiance of international calls for the regime to stop its construction activities on the occupied land.

Syria slams Pompeoís visit at UN

Similarly, Syriaís permanent representative to the UN strongly condemned Pompeoís visit to Golan.

Addressing the UN Security Council meeting on Syria, Bashar al-Jaíafari said the visit showed the absolute bias of the current US administration toward Israel.

Elsewhere, Jaíafari denounced the US for continuing to violate international law by supporting terrorist organizations in Syria.

During the same meeting, the Russian envoy also said Syriaís northwestern province of Idlib is still suffering from instability, particularly with the presence of al-Qaeda affiliated Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorist group in the embattled region.

Nebenzya, however, said efforts to combat terrorism would continue despite attempts by Western countries to defend the terrorists through calling for an agreement or a ceasefire there.
