President Donald Trump’s senior adviser, Jared Kushner, will brief UN Security Council ambassadors on Thursday about the Middle East peace plan that Trump unveiled last week, a US official said on Monday.

The plan has had a mixed reception, with Palestinians rejecting it but Israel welcoming the president’s decision to recognize Israeli annexation of West Bank settlements.

The plan would set forth a four-year timeline for Palestinians to develop governing institutions and rein in Hamas in order to gain statehood with a capital based in a village east of Jerusalem.

“Jared will travel to New York on Thursday to brief UNSC ambassadors on our Vision for Peace,” the US official said.
