Kushner, Greenblatt begin peace push with visit to Moroccan king

U.S. presidential special adviser Jason Greenblatt is heralding a gathering with Moroccan officials on Tuesday that he and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner attended as the two senior U.S. aides work to garner support for a conference next month on providing economic support for Israeli-Palestinian peace.

“Honored to share an Iftar this evening with His Majesty King Mohammed VI, Crown Prince Moulay Hassan, Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, and Jared Kushner,” Greenblatt tweeted. The Iftar is the meal at the conclusion of the daily fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

“Thank you to His Majesty for a special evening and for sharing your wisdom. Morocco is an important friend and ally of the United States,” Greenblatt added.

The White House is promoting a June 25-26 conference in the Gulf state of Bahrain as the first phase of its long-awaited Mideast peace plan, which envisions large-scale investment and infrastructure work, much of it funded by wealthy Arab countries, in the Palestinian territories.

Kushner announced the plans for the Bahrain conference last week, saying it would focus on economic issues and investment in the PA territories.

But American officials say the Bahrain conference will not include the core political issues of the conflict: borders of a Palestinian state, the status of Jerusalem, the fate of Palestinian refugees, or Israeli security demands.

The White House says that, in addition to Morocco, the current Kushner-Greeblatt mission includes stops in Jordan and Israel, as well as Europe.

Jordan and Egypt have not announced their plans for participation in the conference. For now, the Americans are pinning their hopes on wealthy Gulf states, led by Saudi Arabia, hoping their regional influence and financial resources can make the conference a success.

The Saudis, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, along with host Bahrain, have accepted invitations to attend.

The Palestinians will not attend the Bahrain meeting.

“The deal of the century [Trump’s peace plan] or the deal of shame will go to hell, with God’s will, and the economic project they are working on next month will go to hell too,” Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas said this week, adding that “whoever wants to solve the Palestinian issue must start with the political issue, not by selling the illusions of billions” of dollars.

Palestinian officials have called on Arab countries not to attend the Bahrain workshop. Abbas is expected to step up those calls at two events later this week in Saudi Arabia.

特朗普的两名高级助手在定于6月在巴林召开的会议之前会见了穆罕默德六世国王。

美国总统特别顾问格林布拉特星期二宣布,他和特朗普总统的女婿库什纳星期二将与摩洛哥官员会晤,两名美国高级助手参加了会议,为下个月举行的为巴以和平提供经济支持的会议争取支持。

格林布拉特在推特上说:“很荣幸今天晚上与穆罕默德六世国王、穆雷王储哈桑、外交部长布丽塔和贾里德库什纳共同举办了一次联合会。伊法塔是穆斯林斋月期间每日斋戒结束时的晚餐。

“感谢陛下为您举办了一个特别的晚会,并分享了您的智慧。摩洛哥是美国的重要朋友和盟友,”格林布拉特补充说。

白宫正在海湾国家巴林推动6月25日至26日的一次会议,作为期待已久的中东和平计划的第一阶段,该计划设想在巴勒斯坦领土进行大规模投资和基础设施建设,其中大部分由富有的阿拉伯国家提供资金。

库什纳上周宣布了巴林会议的计划,并表示将把重点放在经济问题和对巴领土的投资上。

但美国官员说,巴林会议将不包括冲突的核心政治问题:巴勒斯坦国的边界、耶路撒冷的地位、巴勒斯坦难民的命运或以色列的安全要求。

白宫说,除了摩洛哥,目前库什纳·格里布拉特的任务还包括在约旦、以色列以及欧洲的停留。

约旦和埃及尚未宣布参加会议的计划。目前,美国人把希望寄托在沙特阿拉伯领导的富有的海湾国家身上,希望他们的地区影响力和财政资源能够使会议取得成功。

沙特、阿拉伯联合酋长国和卡塔尔以及东道主巴林都接受了出席的邀请。

巴勒斯坦人不会参加巴林会议。
