TUNIS, March 27 (Xinhua) -- Tunisia's Assembly of People's Representatives (ARP) Wednesday reiterated its categorical rejection of the U.S. president's decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

"U.S. administration decision is a flagrant violation of the United Nations Charter, the principles of the international law and Security Council resolutions," said the ARP in a statement.

"It is also a serious violation of the right of the Syrian people to restore the entire territory of their country, especially as this decision constitutes a direct threat to international peace," it said, adding that the American decision represents an act of aggression that undermines the rights of Syria and its people.

The Tunisian parliament called on the government to take immediate diplomatic measures to denounce the unfair decision and support the Syrian people to maintain their territorial integrity.

On March 25, U.S. President Donald Trump officially recognized Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, which was seized from Syria in 1967.
