Kushner expected to give update on Middle East peace plan at conference

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is expected to share an update about the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan during a public session at the Warsaw Middle East conference next Thursday. A White House official told me Kushner will be participating in a discussion hosted by former Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende on efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Why it matters: This would be the first time Kushner will speak publicly and answer questions about the long-awaited peace plan. Kushner is not expected to give details about the parameters of the plan, but he will most likely provide an update on its status and how the administration wants to reveal and launch it in the next few months — after the April 9 elections in Israel.
