White House's Kushner meets with Egypt's Al Sisi about Middle East peace plan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House adviser Jared Kushner met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi on Thursday, the White House said in a statement, as he continues to conduct meetings in the Middle East over a much-anticipated plan he is drafting for peace between Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Kusher, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, and the White House Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt also discussed increasing cooperation between the United States and Egypt and the need to facilitate humanitarian relief to Gaza, the statement said.

This week, the two have also met with leaders of Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Kushner is charged with crafting the Trump administration’s plan to create peace between Israelis and Palestinians, and the White House has said his work will be released soon.
