The Governments of Syria and Venezuela Thursday criticized the US administration's "hostile, double-standard policy" and demanded Israel to retire from the Golan Heights, which were taken from Syria during the 1967 war, Efe reported.

In a joint press communiqué disseminated Thursday after the Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez' visit to Damascus, both countries underscored that their foreign policies would focus on "confronting the US imperialist policy, which is hegemonic and aggressive all over the world."

According to the statement, Syrian President Bachar al Asad expressed his worries over "the hostile US foreign policy against Venezuela" and asserted the right of the Venezuelan people to self-determination and Venezuela's right to sit at the United Nations Security Council as a non-permanent member.

Additionally, both rulers reiterated their calls upon the international community to force Israel to abide by UN resolution 497, issued in 1981, which stipulates the retirement of Israeli troops from the Syrian Golan.
