Jared Kushner and Benjamin Netanyahu meet for ‘peace’ talks

It is unclear how exactly Mr Trump and Mr Kushner intend to solve one of the most intractable conflicts on the planet.

    Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, met Benjamin Netanyahu this afternoon as part of the latest efforts by the US administration to revive stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

    Mr Netanyahu told Mr Kushner: “We have a lot of things to talk about.

    “How to advance peace, stability and security in our region — prosperity too — and I think all of them are within our reach.”

    Mr Kushner told the Israeli Prime Minister that his father-in-law was “very committed to achieving a solution here that will be able to bring prosperity and peace to all people in this area”.

    It is unclear, however, how exactly Mr Trump and Mr Kushner intend to solve one of the most intractable conflicts on the planet.

    Earlier this year, Mr Trump stated that finding a solution was “something that I think is frankly, maybe, not as difficult as people have thought over the years”.

    On his own trip to Israel in May, the self-described “dealmaker” described a final agreement between the two sides as “the ultimate deal”.

    Mr Kushner is due to meet Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, in Ramallah this evening.

    Ahead of the meeting, however, Palestinian protestors were led in chants of “the American [Kushner] is not welcome; the dog that serves Tel Aviv”.
