White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is headed to Jerusalem and several other capitals in the Middle East next week to talk about moving forward with the Trump administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, Axios reported.

Barak Ravid of Israel’s Channel 13 news, in a report for Axios, reported the trip will be important for both the economic and political components of the plan.

The timing for unveiling the all-important political portion has been thrown off because of new elections called in Israel, and special envoy Jason Greenblatt told PBS the White House is considering whether or not to release it before the Sept. 17 elections.

Greenblatt said President Donald Trump will be the one to make the final call.

According to Ravid, Kushner will arrive in the region with Greenblatt, special envoy for Iran Brian Hook, and his close adviser Avi Berkowitz. 

U.S. officials said Kushner and his team are expected to visit Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE, Qatar and Jerusalem, although the final itinerary may change.

Ravid reported the trip’s goal is to continue talks with Israel and the Arab countries about the economic part of the plan, but that the discussions could also deal with the tricky political part.

Kushner wants to promote the establishment of a multinational fund to finance and monitor a plan to boost the Palestinian economy through projects in the West Bank and Gaza, Ravid reported.

According to Ravid, Kushner met Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and the president of the World Bank, David Malpass, to discuss the establishment of the multinational fund — and met with the foreign minister of Bahrain, Sheikh Khaled Bin Ahmad Al-Khalifa, and proposed basing the fund in Manama. 

Kushner now wants to get other Arab countries on board, Ravid reported.
