Syria condemns Trump’s Mideast peace plan

Damascus, Jan 29 : The Syrian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned the peace plan put forward by US President Donald Trump, saying it represents a surrender to Israel.

In a statement, the ministry said it condemns the so-called “Deal of the Century” that was announced on Tuesday by Trump.

“The latest US plan showed the clear alliance between the US and the Zionist entity and their enmity to the Arab nation,” the ministry said.

It added that the US policies in the region are designed to serve Israel and its expansionist schemes in the region.

Trump on Tuesday revealed the long-awaited political aspect of his Middle East peace plan, a proposal that has already been repeatedly refused by the Palestinians.

Trump also reiterated his administration’s recognition of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights of Syria as an Israeli territory, a recognition that has been repeatedly condemned by Syria.
