JNS.org – Jared Kushner, senior adviser to US President Donald Trump, and special envoy Jason Greenblatt will join other US administration members at the Warsaw conference on the Middle East on Feb. 13-14, a senior White House official told Axios.

The two are expected to meet with foreign officials on the highly anticipated Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, which US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said will be released after the Israeli elections on April 9. Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence will also be at the conference.

Scheduled to be in attendance in Warsaw are Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Bahrain—Gulf states with more positive relations with America and Israel.

These nations not only look to a constructive Mideast peace plan, but also efforts to combat a growing threat from Iran.

Neither the Palestinians nor representation from Iran was invited to the conference.

Initially, the conference was advertised as forum to combat the Iranian threat, but due to backlash from several US allies and Iranian pressure on Poland, it was rebranded as “The Ministerial Conference to Promote a Future of Peace and Security in the Middle East.”
