A White House official told Axios that Kushner, also the president’s son-in-law, will be part of a discussion at the conference on Feb. 13-14, hosted by former Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende, regarding attempts to end the conflict.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is expected to be at the event, said the peace plan will be released after the April 9 Israeli elections.

Also scheduled to be in attendance in Warsaw are US Vice President Mike Pence; Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; and the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Bahrain.
