Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan announced on Wednesday that he spoke with King Abdullah and “assured” him of the United Arab Emirates’s (UAE) “categorical rejection” of Israel’s plan to apply sovereignty to the Jordan Valley and parts of the West Bank.

“I assured King Abdullah in our phone conversation of UAE’s full solidarity with Jordan & our categorical rejection of accepting Israel’s illegal annexation of Palestinian lands. We are working with our Arab brethren & the international community against this illegal move,” Al Nahyan tweeted on Wednesday.

The king recently called on US Congress to oppose any attempt by Israel to oppose annexation.Recently, several Democratic representatives sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opposing the move.

“Unilateral annexation would likely jeopardize Israel’s significant progress on normalization with Arab states at a time when closer cooperation can contribute to countering shared threats,” they wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

In September, King Abdullah warned that annexation would have an impact on the Israel-Jordan relationship.Additionally, the UAE has warned Israel against moving forward with annexation, most recently in an op-ed from UAE Ambassador to the US Yousef al Otaiba.
