Hosting Kushner, Bibi Extols Prosperity, Security, and Peace

This week, Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner traveled to Israel to discuss the peace process. While there, The Times of Israel reports, Israeli PM Netanyahu spoke of the two allied nations’ common goals of prosperity, security, and peace:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday warmly greeted US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and chief Middle East adviser, Jared Kushner, in Jerusalem.

They were joined by US Ambassador David Friedman and US peace envoy Jason Greenblatt for a meeting at the Prime Minister’s Office.

Kushner has been tasked by the president with advancing peace efforts, and Wednesday’s meetings — he was heading next to see Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas — marked his first direct foray in the region, after he accompanied Trump here last month.

“This is an opportunity to pursue our common goals of security, prosperity and peace, and Jared I welcome you here in that spirit, I know of your efforts and the president’s efforts and I look forward to working with you to reach these common goals,” Netanyahu told Kushner as the two men shook hands before the talks.

Netanyahu went on to say that Trump’s visit to Israel last month was a “historic trip, with fantastic warmth, and made an indelible impression on the people of Israel…”
