The delegation, which also includes Trump’s international negotiations representative Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell, reportedly landed in the Middle East on Sunday for talks with the leaders of the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

The US diplomatic team will meet separately with Israeli and Palestinian leaders on Thursday.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday questioned America’s ability to successfully facilitate peace negotiations in light of “chaos” within the Trump administration, and called on the White House to clarify its policies on a two-state solution as well as Israeli homes constructed in the West Bank.

Kushner and Greenblatt also visited Israel and the West Bank in June.
