(JNS) Jordan’s King Abdullah warned this week that Israel extending its sovereignty to the Jordan Valley and parts of Judea and Samaria would undermine regional stability.

“Any unilateral Israeli measure to annex lands in the West Bank is unacceptable and undermines the prospects of achieving peace and stability in the region,” said Abdullah, according to Reuters.

Speaking during a video conference with U.S. congressional leaders and committees, the king said that peace would only come with the creation of an “independent, sovereign and viable Palestinian state” with its capital in Jerusalem.
