US President Donald Trump’s decision to sign a proclamation recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights will have negative consequences for the situation in the Middle East, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday, ONA reports citing ITAR-TASS.

"This decision will definitely have negative consequences both for the Middle East settlement process and the entire atmosphere in the Syrian political settlement. No one doubts it," Peskov said.

This is another step Washington has taken in violation of international law, he stressed.
