British UN Ambassador Karen Pierce told the council that the United States decision was in contravention of that 1981 resolution, while Russia's Deputy UN Ambassador Vladimir Safronkov said Washington had violated UN resolutions and warned it could fuel instability in the Middle East.

Three Security Council resolutions call on Israel to withdraw from the Golan, which it seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed in 1981, in a move that was never recognized internationally.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said the decision represents a serious violation of United Nations Charter, global law and UN Security Council Resolutions.

The Foreign Ministry (Wisma Putra) in a statement last night said that Malaysia found it unacceptable that the U.S. would recognise the forced and illegal occupation of a land that belongs to a sovereign country.

On Monday, Trump signed a presidential proclamation officially recognising Golan as Israeli territory.

Iran is an ally of Damascus and has offered military advisers, sent militiamen and material support to help Assad's government forces in the eight-year civil war.

He's got a great attitude and he really knew what he wanted to do out there, it really felt like he was the guy with a clear plan and I didn't have it.

Pakistan has strongly opposed and condemned the United States' decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over Syrian Golan Heights. Iran echoed the comments, describing Trump's decision as unprecedented in this century. "Malaysia reiterates its unwavering position on occupied Syrian Golan Heights - Golan Heights is Syria's and must be returned to Syria", it said. There are more than 880 United Nations troops on the ground.

UN diplomats were awaiting the outcome of an Arab League summit in Tunis on Sunday that could lead to action at the United Nations to counter the USA decision on the Golan.

Turkey accused US President Donald Trump of resorting to "bully boy" tactics over a disputed move to proclaim that the Golan Heights - captured from Syria in 1967 - belong to Israel.

Unlike previous statements where the culprit was not identified, the Syrian news agency said the area was a target of an "air aggression by Israel". "He did the same on Jerusalem". Erdogan said. "What are you doing?"

"You can give them North and SC, for example, why not?"

"China does not want to see tensions in the region to escalate", he added.
