New York Post - - NEWS - Mark Moore

Top White House ad­viser Jared Kushner will travel to the Mid­dle East this week, hop­ing to help pave the way for peace talks be­tween Is­rael and the Pales­tini­ans.

Kushner, who was named by Pres­i­dent Trump, his fa­ther-in-law, as the go-to guy to bro­ker a peace agree­ment, will ar­rive Wed­nes­day for meet­ings in Jerusalem and Ra­mal­lah, The Wall Street Jour­nal re­ported, cit­ing White House of­fi­cials.

Ja­son Green­blatt, the pres­i­dent’s in­ter­na­tional en­voy, will ar­rive Mon­day and ac­com­pany Kushner on his meet­ings.

Trump has called bring­ing peace to the Mid­dle East the “ul­ti­mate deal,” but it’s an en­deavor that has frus­trated for­mer Pres­i­dents Bill Clin­ton, Ge­orge W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Trump met with Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu and Pales­tinian Author­ity Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ab­bas dur­ing his swing through the Mid­dle East last month on his first foreign trip as pres­i­dent.
