US president will review proposal with top foreign policy, national security aides amid political turmoil in Israel
US President Donald Trump will meet with top advisers this week to review his administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan and discuss the timing for its release, according to a television report on Sunday.
The meeting will be attended by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser John Bolton, Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, as well as Middle East peace envoy Jason Greenblatt, the Channel 10 report said. US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman traveled to Washington, DC, to attend the meeting as well.
US officials told the news channel that Trump wants to see the plan rolled out by February, but his advisers favor taking a more cautious approach, in light of the political crisis engulfing Israel.
The potential collapse of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government would be a key factor in deciding when the US proposal should be unveiled, the officials said.
