The UK's position on the status of the Occupied Golan Heights is clear and has not changed. In line with international law, and relevant UN Security Council Resolutions, notably Resolutions 242 and 497, we do not recognise Israel's sovereignty over the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967, including the Golan Heights, and we do not consider them part of the territory of the State of Israel.
