U.S. President Donald Trump’s senior adviser Jared Kushner will brief the U.N. Security Council on Thursday regarding the Mideast peace plan presented by the Trump administration last week, a U.S. official said on Monday.
“Jared will travel to New York on Thursday to brief UNSC ambassadors on our Vision for Peace,” the official said, according to Reuters.
The plan, the official title of which is “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People,” sets a four-year timeline for Palestinians to develop functioning institutions and rein in the Hamas terror group that currently rules the Gaza Strip.
Ambassador Marc Pecsteen de Buytswerve of Belgium, which holds the rotating presidency of the U.N. Security Council, said he was expecting a formal Palestinian request for Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas to address the Security Council regarding the U.S. proposal, the AFP reported on Monday.
