Pompeo said the U.S. was troubled by Israel's growing economic ties with China, and said that deals with companies like Huawei pose "risks" that would make the United States share less intelligence with Israel, and be less willing to collocate forces with them.

Israel occupied the Golan Heights, West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip in the 1967 Six-Day War.

In an interview Thursday night on Fox News, President Trump denied that the timing of his move was meant to help Netanyahu in the elections.

"No country, no matter how important it is, can make such a decision", Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul Gheit said.

Pompeo also met with Lebanon's powerful Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, before heading for a working lunch with Prime Minister Saad Hariri followed by a meeting with President Michel Aoun.

While President Trump's tweet does not officially change USA policy, it does signal a greater possibility of seeing the policy changed either through Congress or an official presidential declaration.

He pointed out that the visit of US Secretary of State Mark Pompeo accompanied by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Al-Buraq Wall, also known as the Western Wall, is part of these violations.

Russian Federation made clear on Thursday that it would never recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, suggesting Trump is aiming to harm the partnership between Russian Federation and Syria.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Iran of attempting to launch attacks on Israel from the Golan Heights, saying, "I think for this reason and many more, it is time that the worldwide community recognizes Israel's stay on the Golan, and the fact that the Golan will always remain part of the State of Israel". In a critical situation like this, the announcements by the American President have made people wonder If the United States "really" wishes to restore peace in the region.

He said that Washington would continue to use "all peaceful means possible" to pressure Hezbollah, an apparent reference to the sanctions that the USA has imposed over the years and are drying up the group's finances.

Trump's latest move comes after he recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the U.S. embassy there a year ago, which Erdogan strongly condemned. It was not immediately clear how a United Nations peacekeeping force in the Golan might be affected by the USA move.

Golan Heights: Syria condemns Donald Trump's remarks

"The American position towards Syria's occupied Golan Heights clearly reflects the United States' contempt for global legitimacy and its flagrant violation of worldwide law", it said. Pompeo told reporters the change in terminology was not accidental but rather a reflection of the reality on the ground that the Jewish state controlled the territory.

"France does not recognise the Israeli annexation of 1981", the ministry said in a daily briefing, adding that U.N. Security Council resolutions had recognised the annexation as null and void.

Pompeo accused Tehran of seeking the "annihilation and destruction" of Israel.

Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world.

Earlier this month, Israel revealed that Hezbollah terrorists were establishing a network on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights. There have been numerous battles over the land during the eight-year Syrian Civil War.

Pastor John Hagee, the founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), stated, "In our meetings with administration and Capitol Hill officials, there's been a clear understanding of the Golan Heights' importance to Israel's security".

In an angry retort, the Syrian government said Trump's comments disregarded global law. And now 2,500 years later, there's a new Haman here in the Middle East that wants to eradicate the Jewish people like just like Haman did: the state of Iran.

In 2017, Trump also went against decades of practice in recognising the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel´s capital, rather than the previously accepted Tel Aviv. But the gesture was perceived as unfairly siding with Israel and prompted the Palestinians to cut contacts with USA officials.

Trump, early in his administration, abandoned long-standing US policy by moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem after recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. And a signing ceremony with Trump in the White House would be an even greater boost for Netanyahu. "They're going to fail again", Netanyahu said.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said Pompeo's visit added additional obstacles to peace hopes.
