The head of Israel's Mossad, Yossi Cohen, recently visited Jordan, relaying a message to the country's King Abdullah II regarding Israel's plans to annex parts of Judea and Samaria.

Walla! reported on the Mossad Director's trip and meeting with the Jordanian king.

An Israeli source on Thursday said that one of the central topics the two discussed in their meeting was Jordan's opposition to the Israeli government's intention to apply sovereignty to the Jordan Valley.

Cohen also passed on messages from Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to King Abdullah II, and relayed reports from King Abdullah back to the Prime Minister.

Recently, senior Israeli officials warned Netanyahu that sovereignty may critically harm Israel's relations with Jordan.
