 Erdogan slams Trump's statement on Israel sovereignty in Golan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that U.S. President Donald Trump’s statement that it was time to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights has brought the region to the edge of a new crisis.

"We cannot allow the legitimisation of the occupation of the Golan Heights," the Turkish leader said at a meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Reuters reported.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump said in tweet it was time for the U.S. to recognize Israel's control of the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to Israel and regional stability.
