US's Kushner in Gulf region to seek support for Mideast peace plan

In a joint statement issued on Monday at the end of their first-ever summit in the Egyptian Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheik, Arab and European leaders reaffirmed their common position "on the Middle East Peace Process, including on the status of Jerusalem, and on the illegality under global law of Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories".

White House adviser Jared Kushner is visiting Turkey on Wednesday to discuss and promote his Middle East peace plan, TRT World can confirm.

A senior Iraqi official said the country would be interested and willing to establish relations with Israel if the Jewish state would sign a peace deal with the Palestinians, according to a report published Monday.

The final plan is expected to be uncovered after the Israeli elections in April.

Kushner bears responsibility for Washington's Israel-Palestine policy.

Kushner's reference to borders heated up Israel's election campaign on Tuesday.

The Israeli Prime Minister's office refused to respond to TV7's request for comment on the interview, Kushner's remarks on the so-called "deal of the century" immediately prompted a "battle of accusations" between the newly formed "New Right faction" that is headed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ruling Likud party.

Ivanka Trump: Americans don't want Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's job guarantees
I do not however believe in a minimum guarantee for people "unwilling to work" which was the question asked of me. Jon Huntsman Jr., noted her concern with Ocasio-Cortez's statement on "The View".

Kushner said that Washington has been able to keep a large part of the plan secret, and that in previous negotiations details were released prematurely.

Palestinians, who have refused to discuss any peace blueprint with the United States in the wake of Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital in 2017, also viewed Kushner's comments with suspicion.

Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said a plan that doesn't establish a Palestinian state "will not fly".

Two Palestinian siblings from the town of Musherfeh, inside Israel, have ended 27 years behind bars in Israeli jails for their resistance of the Israeli occupation, the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said today in a press statement. Israel pulled troops and settlers out of the Gaza Strip, now controlled by Hamas Islamists, in 2005.

An embassy statement said the talks dwelt on U.S. -Omani cooperation and Trump's efforts for peacemaking between the Palestinians and Israel as well as ways to "improve the condition of the entire region through economic investment".

Kushner noted that in contrast to previous worldwide attempts to resolve the highly-complex conflict, the main emphasis of the current plan does not focus as much on the issues, but rather presents both Israel and the Palestinians with incentives to allows them to achieve their full potential and eliminate hurdles that hindered their must aspired 'global integration'.

It took very little time for opposing political parties - especially those vying for votes on the Right - to go to battle over Kushner's comments, with Bennett saying that his words "prove what we already know: that the day after the elections, the Americans will push the Netanyahu-Lapid-Gantz government to allow the establishment of a Palestinian state on Route 6, to agree to the division of Jerusalem - and Netanyahu will be forced to acquiesce".
