Trump's Mideast team to push peace plan in region

The White House says President Donald Trump's Mideast negotiating team will visit the region next week as it finalizes its as-yet unveiled Israel-Palestinian peace plan and will hold talks on deteriorating conditions in the Gaza Strip. The trip comes as officials say

the Trump administration is near completion of the plan with an eye on a possible release this summer.

 

The National Security Council said Wednesday that Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and special representative for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt would travel to Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. It said they would discuss "the next stages of the peace effort" and get ideas from regional leaders about "remaining questions the White House peace team has."
