  • Trump to send envoys to Middle East to discuss peace official

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel will "welcome" the delegation U.S. President Donald Trump is dispatching to the Middle East later this month in an effort to renew the peace process.

President Donald Trump is sending his son-in-law Jared Kushner and negotiator Jason Greenblatt to the Middle East soon to meet regional leaders and discuss a "path to substantive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks", a White House official said on Friday.

Netanyahu called Kushner and Greenblatt's visit "an effort to advance the peace process".

President Trump stressed that Palestinians and Israelis need "direct negotiations", the United States official added.

Trump directed that the talks focus on a pathway to peace talks, fighting "extremism", easing the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, and identifying economic steps that can be taken to ensure security and stability, the official said.

A total of at least 18 members of the Trump administration filed late financial disclosure statements with the ethics office this year, Mr. Kushner included, according to data collected by a Democratic opposition research firm, American Bridge 21st Century, and confirmed by McClatchy, the report said.

Arab media on Wednesday quoted several Palestinian officials, including chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, as saying the current USA efforts are "redundant" because the Palestinians "have lost confidence in the Americans as objective mediators".

According to a senior Israeli official, the delegation is evidently expected to arrive in the last week of August.

Tensions escalated between Israel and the Palestinians after three Arab-Israelis shot and killed two Israeli policemen at the ultra-sensitive holy site and the Israeli government upped security measures around the compound in response.
