Jared Kushner to visit Israel, Palestinians in USA push for peace talks

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 00:35

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, will visit Israel on Wednesday in an effort to jump-start the peace process.

The objective of the trip is to push for a peace deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians, according to an unnamed White House official.

Mr Kushner, who has been one of the President's main go-to-guys for Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, has faced recent controversy after it was revealed that he had discussed setting up a secret back channel between the Kremlin and the Trump transition team.

The Washington Post reported last week that Mueller is investigating Kushner's business dealings as part of his investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.


It serves as a follow-up to the president's visit to Jerusalem and Bethlehem in May, when he called on Israelis and Palestinians to pursue a peace deal.

Kushner will be embarking on, this, his third visit to the region amid speculation that he is considering making amendments to his legal representation in the probe regarding the Trump Administration's connections with Russian Federation. The official told the Journal that Kushner and these leaders will talk about "their priorities and potential next steps". The two are expected to work to advance direct talks between the parties.

Commenting on the new figures, Peace Now, an Israeli settlement watchdog, said in a statement that such construction "distances (Israel) from the only way to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a two-state solution". Behind-the-scenes conversations have been taking place since the Trump trip, the White House official said. Trump made a decision to delay fulfilling a campaign promise to move the US embassy to Jerusalem in an attempt to advance the prospects of a peace agreement, the White House said earlier this month.

Settlements are seen as illegal under global law and major stumbling blocks to a solution as they are built on land the Palestinians see as part of their future state in a two-state settlement.
