US National Security Adviser: No New Policy on Golan Heights Recognition

(JNS) During his recent visit to Israel, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton told Reuters that despite strong Israeli pressure on the United States to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, the American policy will not be changing at the moment.

“I’ve heard the idea being suggested but there’s no discussion of it, no decision within the U.S. government,” Bolton told Reuters. “Obviously, we understand the Israeli claim that it has annexed the Golan Heights—we understand their position—but there’s no change in the U.S. position for now.”

In his interview with Reuters, Bolton did not indicate that the Trump administration saw Palestinian statehood as an answer to conflict between the Palestinian Authority and Israel.

“I think it’s been the U.S. view for a long time that ultimately Israelis and Palestinians are going to have to agree on this,” he said. “Nobody’s going to impose a peace in that respect.”
