(October 17, 2019 / JNS) White House senior adviser and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner will visit Israel next month in the aftermath of the Sept. 17 elections, which have still resulted in no clear government coalition.
He plans to meet with Blue and White Party leader Benny Gantz, reported McClatchy.
Kusher will be accompanied by Avi Berkowitz, who will succeed Jason Greenblatt as the Trump administration’s envoy to the Middle East, and Brian Hook, U.S. special envoy for Iran.
However, it remains unlikely that political components of the White House’s Mideast peace plan will be released.
Economic components were put forth in June at the “Peace to Prosperity” summit in Bahrain that was boycotted by the Palestinian Authority, which has already repeatedly rejected the peace effort.
The U.S. delegation is also scheduled to attend an economic conference in Saudi Arabia, joining U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
