Vladimir Putin to discuss U.S. Golan recognition with Lebanese president

MOSCOW - Russian President Vladimir Putin will discuss the US decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights with Lebanon's president at talks in Moscow later on Tuesday, the Kremlin said.
US President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Monday officially granting US recognition of the Golan Heights as Israeli territory.
"Such decisions undoubtedly have negative consequences from the point of view of a settlement in the Middle East and the general atmosphere of political settlement in Syria," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
