The Trump administration’s decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights will help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by removing uncertainty, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday.

“We believe this increases the likelihood that we get a resolution of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians,” Pompeo told a congressional hearing. “We think it speaks with the clarity that takes this away from any uncertainty about how we’ll proceed.”
