ABU DHABI: The UAE fully supports Jordan and rejects the illegal annexation of Palestinian lands by Israel, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed told the Jordanian King Abdullah on Wednesday.
The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and King Abdullah shared a phone call, where they discussed the Israeli government’s planned illegal annexation of Palestinian territories. They said this move breached international resolutions and undermined the prospects of peace in the Middle East.
Sheikh Mohamed said the UAE was working with Arab countries and the international community against this illegal move and its expected fallout.
He also reiterated the UAE’s appreciation of Jordan’s support for the Palestinian cause, noting the importance of continuing co-ordination between the two countries for the greater good of the two nations’ peoples and the Arab nation at large, reported state news agency Wam.
“I assured King Abdullah, in our phone conversation, of the UAE’s full solidarity with Jordan and our categorical rejection of accepting Israel’s illegal annexation of Palestinian lands. We are working with our Arab brethren and the international community against this illegal move,” Sheikh Mohamed said on Twitter.
