‘Deal of the Century’ in question as Kushner meets with Israel’s prime minister

With Israel facing new elections, the success of the “Deal of the Century” is in question.

By World Israel News Staff

Jared Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday afternoon. Kushner is in Israel to build momentum toward next month’s “economic workshop” in Bahrain.

Also attending the meeting were U.S. Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook and Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer.

Trump negotiator Jason Greenblatt is part of the delegation, which arrived in Israel on Wednesday.

“It’s always a great pleasure to welcome Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt to Israel, to Jerusalem, and to discuss our common efforts for prosperity, security and peace,” Netanyau said. “I’m tremendously encouraged by how the United States, under President Trump, is working to bring allies together in this region against common challenges, but also to seize common opportunities.”

The Bahrain conference is expected to focus on economic aspects of the “Deal of the Century.” It will run from June 25-26.

However, with Netanyahu unable to form a governing coalition, the future of the Trump plan is in question. Ironically, the Trump administration waited to present its peace plan until after Israel had a new government in place.
Israel will return to the voting booth in September.

Israel is the third and final stop for the team working to garner support for a Middle East peace plan. The envoys first stopped in Morocco, where they met with King Mohammed VI, Crown Prince Moulay Hassan and Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita. They then went to Jordan to meet with King Abdullah II.

Following his meeting with King Abdullah II, Greeblatt tweeted: “Constructive meeting with @KingAbdullahII in Jordan today including a good conversation about regional dynamics and our administration’s efforts to help Israel and the Palestinians achieve a brighter future.”

Though Moroccan officials have declined commenting on the visit, the official Petra news agency reported that the Jordanian visit involved discussing, “regional developments, especially efforts to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.”

The King also “stressed the need to step up all efforts to achieve comprehensive and lasting peace on the basis of the two-state solution, guaranteeing the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the 4 June 1967 lines, with east Jerusalem as its capital, living side by side with Israel in peace and security, in accordance with international law and relevant U.N. resolutions.”

Thus far, neither Morocco nor Jordan have confirmed attendance in Bahrain. However, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar will be joining the conference while expressing solidarity with the Palestinians.

The Bahrain conference will discuss economic incentives to bring peace between Israel and the Palestinians. However, it has been made clear that Palestinian statehood is not on the agenda. Therefore, Palestinian political leaders as well as representatives from China and Russia will boycott the event.

Kushner has signaled that the White House may be pulling back from America’s previous support for a two-state solution.

Earlier this month, he said “If you say ‘two-state,’ it means one thing to the Israelis, it means one thing to the Palestinians. We said, ‘you know, let’s just not say it. Let’s just say, let’s work on the details of what this means.’”

However, he has billed the economic workshop as “a pivotal opportunity… to share ideas, discuss strategies and galvanize support for potential economic investments and initiatives that could be made possible by a peace agreement.”

After meeting the prime minister, Kushner affirmed the U.S. president’s commitment to Israel’s security. “The security of Israel is something that’s critical to the relations between America and Israel, and also very important to the President, and we appreciate all your efforts to strengthen the relationship between our two countries.

“It’s never been stronger, and we’re very excited about all the potential that lies ahead for Israel, for the relationship, and for the future.”

随着以色列面临新的选举,“世纪交易”的成功受到质疑。

美国总统唐纳德特朗普的高级顾问兼女婿贾里德库什纳周四下午会见了本杰明内塔尼亚胡总理。库什纳在以色列为下个月在巴林的“经济研讨会”建立势头。

出席会议的还有美国驻伊朗问题特别代表布莱恩胡克和以色列驻美国大使罗恩德默。

特朗普谈判代表杰森格林布拉特是代表团成员,周三抵达以色列。

“我们非常高兴地欢迎Jared Kushner和Jason Greenblatt来到以色列,耶路撒冷,并讨论我们为繁荣,安全与和平所做的共同努力,”Netanyau说。 “在特朗普总统领导下,美国如何努力使盟国在这个地区共同应对共同挑战,同时也抓住共同机遇,我感到非常鼓舞。”

巴林会议预计将关注“世纪交易”的经济方面。它将于6月25日至26日举行。

然而,由于内塔尼亚胡无法组建执政联盟,特朗普计划的未来是有问题的。具有讽刺意味的是,特朗普政府在以色列建立新政府之前等待提出和平计划。

以色列将于9月返回投票站。

以色列是该团队努力争取中东和平计划支持的第三站也是最后一站。特使们首先在摩洛哥停留,在那里他们会见了国王穆罕默德六世,王储穆莱哈桑和外交部长纳赛尔布里塔。然后他们前往约旦与阿卜杜拉二世国王会面。

在与阿卜杜拉二世国王会晤后,格雷布拉特发推文说:“今天在约旦与约翰·阿卜杜拉二世进行了建设性会谈,包括就地区动态与我们政府帮助以色列和巴勒斯坦人实现更光明未来的努力进行了良好的对话。”

虽然摩洛哥官员拒绝对这次访问发表评论,但佩特拉官方通讯社报道说,约旦访问涉及“区域发展,特别是解决巴以冲突的努力”。

国王还“强调有必要加强一切努力,在两国解决方案的基础上实现全面持久和平,保证在1967年6月4日以东耶路撒冷为首都建立一个独立的巴勒斯坦国,根据国际法和联合国有关决议,与以色列在和平与安全中毗邻共处。“

到目前为止,摩洛哥和约旦都没有确认参加巴林。但是,沙特阿拉伯,阿拉伯联合酋长国和卡塔尔将加入会议,同时表示声援巴勒斯坦人。

巴林会议将讨论在以色列和巴勒斯坦人之间实现和平的经济激励措施。但是,已经明确指出,巴勒斯坦建国不在议程上。因此,巴勒斯坦政治领导人以及中国和俄罗斯代表将抵制这一事件。

库什纳表示,白宫可能正在退出美国此前对两国解决方案的支持。

本月早些时候,他说:“如果你说’两国’,对以色列人来说意味着一件事,对巴勒斯坦人来说意味着一件事。我们说,’你知道,我们不要说它。我们只想说,让我们研究这意味着什么的细节。’“

然而,他将经济研讨会称为“一个关键机会……分享想法,讨论战略并激发对潜在经济投资的支持以及和平协议可能实现的举措。”

在会见总理后,库什纳肯定了美国总统对以色列安全的承诺。 “以色列的安全对于美国和以色列之间的关系至关重要,对总统也非常重要,我们感谢你为加强我们两国关系所做的一切努力。

“它从来没有变得更强大,我们对以色列,关系和未来的所有潜力感到非常兴奋。”
