/NOVOSTIVL/ Lawmakers from Russia, Iran and Turkey are calling for Syria’s territorial integrity to be preserved as remarks from Israel and the United States have renewed long-standing land disputes. This article appeared in the Associated Press.

The legislators from parliament foreign affairs committees met Wednesday in Moscow for a special session on Syria.

Russian state news agency RIA-Novosti quoted Iranian parliament member Heshmatollah Falahatpishe as saying the discussion "was a good beginning".

Falahatpishe continued: "We confirmed the necessity of preserving the territorial integrity of Syria, especially regarding the Golan Heights".

President Donald Trump last month signed a decree recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which Israel annexed during a 1967 war.
