Jared Kushner Meets with Saudi Crown Prince

US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner has met with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince in an effort to restart peace talks in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Mr. Kushner is a Trump senior presidential advisor in charge of the administration’s efforts to broker a lasting Middle East peace deal., He flew to Jeddah on two days ago where he held meetings with Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, defence minister and the architect of Saudi’s involvement in Yemen’s devastating war . He has been described as  the “most dangerous man in the world.”

Kushner was accompanied by negotiator Jason Greenblatt and deputy national security adviser Dina Powell. The meeting is part of a regional tour which will include leaders from Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Egypt and Qatar. The talks were aimed at achieving stability in the “wider Middle East and beyond,” Saudi state news agency SPA also said. Kuwaiti and US-led mediation efforts in the spat have so far failed. Trump has repeatedly emphasized his sincere desire to broker a peace deal in the intractable Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
