The United States will unveil its Middle East peace plan after Israel holds its upcoming general election on April 9, White House adviser Jared Kushner said Thursday, according to Politico.
Kushner, who is President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, told officials at a closed-door meeting during a conference on the Middle East in Warsaw on Thursday that Israel and Palestine both will have to compromise. Russia, Lebanon and the Palestinian Authority all refused to attend the conference, which is sponsored by the U.S., and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a separate summit in Sochi, where he hosted the heads of Turkey and Iran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Haaretz in Warsaw, "I look forward to seeing the plan once it is presented. I have to say that I know that the Trump administration seeks to ensure the security of Israel for generations."
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters in a press conference alongside Netanyahu that "you can't achieve stability in the Middle East without confronting Iran. It's just not possible."
"There are malign influences in Lebanon, Yemen, Syria and Iraq," he added. "The three H's- the Houthis, Hamas and Hezbollah. These are real threats."
