The US president’s adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner has revealed that UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson wants to hold a meeting with him and foreign ministers from France, Germany, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, Israeli Channel 10 reports.
During the meeting, which is expected to take place sometime in July, Johnson reportedly hopes to compare notes and coordinate “red lines” for Washington’s new Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, although Kushner already stated that it is ultimately up to President Trump to decide “what is included in the US plan.”
"Our peace plan won’t be the Bibi [Netanyahu] plan. It will be fair, balanced, realistic and fitting," Channel 10 quoted US officials familiar with the matter as saying.
Meanwhile, Jared Kushner and US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley met with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York City to discuss US efforts “to promote peace in the Middle East and to meet humanitarian needs in Gaza.”
Haley also criticized a new UN resolution condemning excessive use of force by Israeli soldiers against Palestinians in Gaza, lamenting that the document did not mention the Hamas movement or the Israeli right to "self-defense."
