The initial report had stated: "The Biden administration is walking back the United States' historic recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the contested Golan Heights region along Israel's northern border, a significant blow to the Jewish state and one of the Trump administration's signature foreign policy decisions." But the State Department's Near Eastern Affairs Department tweeted in response as the claim began to spread: "US policy regarding the Golan has not changed, and reports to the contrary are false."
And separately a State Department official told Middle East Eye that "Our policy on Golan has not changed."
Perhaps most interesting in all this is that the original report forced a statement from the Biden administration affirming that it intends to keep yet another controversial Trump policy that the former president was initially fiercely criticized for, particularly from Democratic circles. It's increasingly apparent that when it comes to Trump's most previously contested foreign policies, Biden is now actively upholding and defending them.
