Jordan’s King Abdullah II said on Tuesday that Israel continuing with its plans to extend its sovereignty to all settlements in Judea and Samaria would be a “disaster” for the two-state solution, the AP reported.

Speaking after meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Abdullah said that he was “extremely concerned” about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to annex the area of the West Bank replete with Jewish settlements.

He also warned the relationship between Jordan and Israel would be affected by such a move, and that “these types of statements are … a disaster to any attempt to move forward to the two-state solution.”

Merkel apparently agreed, saying Netanyahu’s vow was “unhelpful,” according to the report.
