Russian President Vladimir Putin will discuss the US decision to recognise Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights with Lebanon's president at talks in Moscow later on Tuesday, the Kremlin said, Reuters reports.
US President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Monday officially granting U.S. recognition of the Golan Heights as Israeli territory.
"Such decisions undoubtedly have negative consequences from the point of view of a settlement in the Middle East and the general atmosphere of political settlement in Syria," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
