Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that Ankara will take the issue of the Golan Heights to the United Nations after US President Donald Trump said Washington would recognize the territory as part of Israel.
He didn’t go into details during the interview to broadcaster TGRT Haber.
Erdogan called Trump’s actions a “gift” to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of elections there. Israel occupied the Golan Heights, a Syrian territory, during the 1967 Six Day War, and effectively annexed it in 1981.

Turkey annexed northern Cyprus and Syria’s Antioch province they renamed as Hatay. Turkey also illegally annexed Greek Thrace and its imperial city Constantinople.

I think these illegal occupations should be brought to the UNSC in order to prove UN has no double standards.

Turkey and Israel are two wings of the same bird, the Vulture. Golan belongs to Syria as does Idlib, the oilfields and the entire North East. Losers pack it up and go home. Kurds you are not indigious to Syria so if you can’t make peace with the government leave.

Yes but the issue is about Golan heights not Cyprus or Syria and we all know that the UN is toothless

They will also have no teeth when the US Army dies for ISHELL. Red Cow, Trump and Saturn (Devil = Yahweh) will not solve this problem.

US Army won’t die for Israel : every Tsahal soldier worth 20 of their enemies and they have all it takes to make the Mid-East a radioactive parking lot

Moreover, they’re world leader in bio-technologies and didn’t signed the convention on biological warfare. You really don’t get how Israel is powerful…

@luke, the Sultanate of Turkey has no stake in the Golan heights and better talk about Northern Cyprus.

When bashar a assad loses the election, Golan will be linked to Turkey.

With 85% voting for Bashar each time, he may still be Prez when ErdoGoon will be jailed in the Hague 😉

@Daeshbags-Sux, Hatay was given to Atatürk by France.

France annexed Strasbourg so what? It happened before UN times.

Maria Zakharova said Russia perfectly received the Pompeo/Trump message and Russia will change her rhetoric about Crimea…
Now you get what the Yanks are doing 😉

There is no Hatay, only Antioch, as there is only Constantinople 😉 Don’t make the Ottomads the favur to use Ghazi names…

Not Syria but a self declared front man with aspirations of more land theft under the guise of helping. All the while running cover for zionist interests
