White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner, who is also President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, met on Tuesday with Jordan’s King Abdullah about the humanitarian situation in Gaza and the Trump administration’s efforts on creating peace between Israel and the Palestinians, the White House said on Tuesday.

The meeting, which also included Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, came one day after a tête-à-tête between the king of the Arab nation and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on advancing regional peace. The Trump administration has been working on an Israeli-Palestinian plan, but it has yet to be made public.
