The US-Israel relationship is “stronger than ever,” US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top advisor said Thursday in Tel Aviv at the top of a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Trump “is very committed to achieving a solution here that will be able to bring prosperity and peace to all people in the area, and we really appreciate the commitment of the prime minister in engaging very thoughtfully and respectfully in the way the president has asked,” Kushner said.

Kushner, along with Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell and Mideast negotiator Jason Greenblatt, arrived in Israel Wednesday evening after visiting Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt in an effort to re-ignite the diplomatic process. Following the delegation's meeting with Netanyahu, where it was joined by Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer and US Ambassador David Friedman, the delegation is scheduled to go to Ramallah for talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Netanyahu said that he has “a lot of things to talk about” with the delegation, including how to advance peace, stability, security and prosperity in the region.

The delegation's visit, he said, is a “sign of the great alliance between us, and the great goals that guide us.”
