Cavusoglu: U.S. decision on Golan Heights to lead to violence in region
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu slammed U.S. President Donald Trump's tweet seeking to legitimize Israel's control of the Golan Heights.
"The territorial integrity of states is the most fundamental principle of international law," Cavusoglu said in a tweet.
"Attempts by the U.S. to legitimize Israel's actions against international law will only lead to more violence and pain in the region. Turkey supports Syria's territorial integrity," he added.
Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin also condemned the preposterous claim, Anadoly Agency reported.
Earlier on Thursday, Trump said in tweet it was time for the U.S. to recognize Israel's control of the Golan Heights.
