Gulf News - - Gulf -

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s son-in-law and se­nior ad­vi­sor, Jared Kush­ner trav­elled unan­nounced to Saudi Ara­bia last week to con­tinue dis­cus­sions over peace in the Mid­dle East, a White House of­fi­cial told CNN.

Deputy Na­tional Se­cu­rity Ad­viser Dina Pow­ell and Ja­son Green­blatt, spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tive for in­ter­na­tional ne­go­ti­a­tions, joined Kush­ner on the trip, the of­fi­cial said on Sun­day.

Kush­ner trav­elled com­mer­cially, leav­ing Wed­nes­day and re­turn­ing Satur­day evening. How­ever, the of­fi­cial did not give de­tails of who Kush­ner met in Saudi Ara­bia.

Kush­ner has been in fre­quent talks with of­fi­cials from Is­rael, the Pales­tinian Au­thor­ity, Egypt, United Arab Emi­rates, Jor­dan and Saudi Ara­bia, CNN re­ported.

Last week’s trip marks the third time Kush­ner has vis­ited Saudi Ara­bia since Trump’s In­au­gu­ra­tion Day on Jan­uary 8.

He trav­elled with a pres­i­den­tial del­e­ga­tion in May and also vis­ited in late Au­gust. In May, Trump signed a $110 bil­lion arms deal be­tween the US and Saudi Ara­bia.
