White House Mideast team staffed up for peace plan rollout

WASHINGTON - US officials say the Trump administration is staffing up a Middle East policy team at the White House in anticipation of unveiling its long awaited but largely mysterious Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

 

The National Security Council last week began approaching other agencies seeking volunteers to join the team, which will work for President
Donald Trump's Mideast peace point men Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt.

 

The creation of a White House team is the first evidence in months that a plan is advancing. Although Trump officials have long promised the most comprehensive package ever put forward toward resolving the conflict, the emerging plan has not been described with even a small amount of detail by Kushner, Greenblatt or any other official.

 

Timing on the release of the plan remains undecided.
