Austria has clarified that it has no intention of removing soldiers stationed with the UN in the Golan Heights, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.

At the moment there is no plan to reduce the scope of Austrian forces in the Golan Heights, the spokeswoman for the Austrian Ministry of Defense said.

The UN forces consist of 375 Austrian soldiers, which make up about one third of the total UN troops in the Golan.
