On the eve of the opening of the controversial new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is completing the administration's peace plan and weighs releasing it to the public, according to an Axios report Sunday.
Kushner arrived Sunday in Israel at noon local time with the U.S. delegation that included Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, adviser on Israel Jason Greenblatt, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and Ivanka Trump. The opening ceremony for the embassy is 4 p.m. local time Monday.
The delegation met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday and attended a reception at the Israeli Foreign Ministry hosted by Netanyahu later in the day.
Kushner's White House goal has been to settle peace talks in the Middle East between Israel and the Palestinians. He is drafting a final version of the White House's peace plan and is currently in discussion with administration officials on where, when, and how to make the plans public, according to the report.
