Trump’s Mid­dle East team to push peace plan in re­gion

The Record (Troy, NY) - - WEATHER -

WASHINGTON » The White House said Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s Mideast ne­go­ti­at­ing team will visit the re­gion next week as it fi­nal­izes its as-yet un­veiled Is­raeli-Pales­tinian peace plan and will hold talks on de­te­ri­o­rat­ing con­di­tions in the Gaza Strip. The trip comes as of­fi­cials say the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion is near com­ple­tion of the plan with an eye on a pos­si­ble re­lease this sum­mer.

The Na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil said Wed­nes­day that Trump’s sonin-law and se­nior ad­viser, Jared Kush­ner, and spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tive for in­ter­na­tional ne­go­ti­a­tions, Ja­son Green­blatt, would travel to Is­rael, Egypt and Saudi Ara­bia. It said they would dis­cuss “the next stages of the peace ef­fort” and get ideas from re­gional lead­ers about “re­main­ing ques­tions the White House peace team has.”

No stop in the Pales­tinian ter­ri­to­ries is planned, al­though the NSC said the itin­er­ary may be ex­panded.
