Senior White House aide Jared Kushner arrived in Israel Wednesday to push for a revival of peace talks with the Palestinians.

President Donald Trump sent his senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, back to Israel in an effort to jumpstart peace efforts through meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

Jason Greenblatt, Trump’s chief international negotiator, arrived on Monday.

It appears the US leader is serious about his goal to reach “the ultimate deal.”
