Solid Constants1 and Arab National Security

The joint military drills “The Solid Constants/1,” which brought together the UAE Armed Forces and Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF), were held in Abu Dhabi, UAE in July 2019. The joint exercises embody the united approach to Arab national security reflecting not only the two countries’ understanding of the current serious challenges and threats to Arab national security, but also the need to work together to strengthen Arab solidarity and national security. 

The title “Solid Constants/1” also stresses that the military cooperation between the two countries is based on the firm principles of the two countries, particularly defending the right, solidarity with brothers, maintaining regional and international peace, standing united against various challenges and strengthening the security and stability in the Arab countries and the region.

The attendance of the drills by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and King Abdullah II of Jordan demonstrates the keenness of the two leaders to enhance military cooperation and ensure military preparedness to defend national interests and to deter any purported aggression against the two states.  

On this occasion, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan stressed that “the continued military cooperation between the UAE and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan aims to reinforce security, stability and peace in the region and be vigilant against the threats to regional and Arab security. It fosters the bonds of love and understanding that have connected the two brotherly peoples since ancient times.” The two countries have participated in the international alliance to counter the terrorist Daesh Organisation and in the Arab Coalition led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to support the legitimate Yemeni government to counter the Houthi terrorist militias. The two countries reject foreign interference in the affairs of the countries of the region, and oppose the conspiracies aimed at undermining the security and capabilities of Gulf and Arab states.

There is no doubt that the continued military cooperation between the two countries is based on the firm conviction that their security is an integral part of the national security of the Gulf and Arab national security.  His Majesty King Abdullah II stressed that “the military drills are a message addressed not only to the peoples of the two brotherly countries but also to the region and entire world that we are all standing as one against any threat besetting us.”

The joint military exercises between the countries represent the most important means to develop skills, raise the level of efficiency and upgrade the readiness of the armed forces. The joint military exercise “Solid Constants/1” constitutes an advanced stage in the course of military cooperation between the two countries, specifically with regard to the management of joint military operations and the unification of procedures between the participating forces.  This would help to strengthen confidence and promote joint military capabilities for maintaining Arab national security and deterring anyone seeking to undermine the stability of the Arab states.
