Kushner, Greenblatt to discuss 'Deal of the Century' with 5 Arab countries

Feb. 8, 2019 9:54 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 8, 2019 1:08 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Jared Kushner, the United States President's son-in-law and senior adviser, will visit the Middle East at the end of February, along with the US President's special envoy to the region, Jason Greenblatt, to discuss the economic aspects of Donald Trump's peace plan, "Deal of the Century."

Israeli news outlet, Haaretz, reported that the visit will include stops in at least five Arab countries.

The visit will be Kushner's first to the region since the US announced it will delay the presentation of the peace plan until the end of the Israeli election.

Haaretz reported that Kushner and Greenblatt will meet with the rulers of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates - three countries that could play a key role in supporting efforts to strengthen the Palestinian economy.

The newspaper added that the visit "will focus only on the economic issues, according to the White House, and not on the political, diplomatic and security aspects of the plan."
