WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, will begin taking questions from foreign leaders next week on his plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace.
A senior White House official told The Jerusalem Post that Kushner plans to center discussions with foreign leaders at a security conference in Warsaw on his peace plan, now two years in the making and set for publication sometime this spring.
Several foreign ministers will be in Poland on February 14 for a summit on Middle East security and stability, helmed by the State Department.
“Senior Adviser to the President Jared Kushner will be participating in a discussion hosted by Borge Brende on efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the morning of Thursday, February 14th, at the Warsaw Ministerial,” one official confirmed.
Kushner has spoken little on his vision for a lasting peace agreement,
but plans to be a public face of the coming effort.
Jason Greenblatt, who is working daily on the construction of the plan alongside Kushner, will also be in Warsaw for the conference.
Characterizing Israeli-Palestinian peace as the “deal of the century,” Trump has said he prefers a two-state solution to the conflict.
Administration officials say they are most likely to delay the release of the plan until after Israeli elections on April 9.
