Rouhani, Abd al-Mahdi talk regional unity after US move on Golan

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told Iraq’s prime minister on Tuesday that regional countries must unite to fight against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel, Reuters reported.

“The excessive demands of the Zionist regime and the wrong decisions of Washington necessitate closer cooperation among regional countries,” Rouhani was quoted as saying by the state broadcaster IRIB in a phone call with Adil Abd al-Mahdi.

Rouhani said developments in the Golan Heights were “very dangerous for regional security.” Source
