Abu Dhabi, The United Arab Emirates has expressed its strong condemnation and categorical rejection of an announcement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the planned annexation of land from the occupied West Bank to Israel in the event of an election win.

Sheikh Abdullah affirmed the UAE's welcoming and immediate response to calls by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to convene an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to discuss this dangerous escalation and develop an urgent plan of action, adding that addressing this declaration by PM Netanyahu is a shared responsibility that requires the international community to take necessary action against this alarming development.
