Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Wednesday evening at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem with U.S. Presidential senior adviser Jared Kushner and White House Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt.

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

Kushner and his team will visit Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

His visit will build on discussions that took place at the Bahrain Economic Workshop in June.

That conference promised $50 billion to the Palestinians and Arab states over 10 years with the goal of providing the Palestinians with an avenue to economic prosperity.

Israel media reported on Wednesday that President Donald Trump will hold a conference with Arab leaders at Camp David to outline his peace plan.

Reports say that that conference was planned jointly with Netanyahu and Ambassador Dermer.
