Kushner leads USA delegation for peace talks in Middle East

On Thursday, they will meet separately with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Kushner, Greenblatt and Powell have been heavily involved in a behind-the-scenes process to help Trump broker peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, which the first-year president has called the "ultimate deal".

The recent crisis in Jerusalem has once again highlighted the unsustainability of the current situation, as well as "the need for a political horizon and clear recommitment by the worldwide community and both parties to ending the occupation and realizing a two-State solution", said Jenca while briefing the Security Council on the situation in the Middle East.

Citing the latest settlement activities by Israel, he said that "such actions only fuel perceptions that those working to obstruct the two-state solution are gaining the upper hand" and reiterated that settlements are illegal under worldwide law and an obstacle to peace.

"I can't understand how they are conducting themselves with us", he said, according to one participant's notes. 'Inside [Trump's] country, there is chaos in the administration, ' he said.

The traveling delegation met with leaders from the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia early this week before heading to Israel on Wednesday.
