WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. officials are preparing an official document to codify recognition by the United States of Israeli sovereignty of the Golan Heights and President Donald Trump might sign it next week, a senior administration official said on Friday.

Trump announced on Thursday that it was time for the United States to recognise Israeli sovereignty of the Golan Heights that Israel seized from Syria in 1967. Trump is likely to sign the presidential document when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits Washington next week, the official said.
