White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will go on a weeklong trip to the Middle East to press the peace plan he has been working on for nearly two years, Politico reported.
According to Politico, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump will share details of the economic portion of the peace plan in an attempt to win support of regional leaders.
"Jared is going to present the economic plan to the region," an unnamed senior administration official told Politico. "The economic plan only works if the region supports it. We understand that if the political aspect of it is not solid, the economic aspect is meaningless. But at the same time the political aspect will not succeed without a proper economic plan."
The economic portion of the plan includes a package of public and private-sector investments in all sectors of the Palestinian economy, Politico reported.
The trip will begin the last week of February.
"If regional leaders think our ideas offer a transformative vision for the Palestinians, for integrating the Palestinians and Israel into the region, and if they agree to financially support our plan — that would be a success," the unnamed official told Politico.
