“I’ve heard the idea being proposed but there’s no discussion of it, no resolution within the U.S. government,” Bolton told Reuters during a visit to Israel. “Obviously we understand the Israeli claim that it has annexed the Golan Heights – we understand their situation – but there’s no change in the U.S. position for now.”
On Wednesday, John Bolton, after concluding a three-day visit to Israel, told Reuters that the US administration of President Donald Trump did not discuss the possibility of recognizing the Golan Heights as an Israeli territory. Israel Minister for Intelligence and Transport Israel Kats on May 23 in an interview with Reuters said that Israel is negotiating with the US to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan.
