 White House adviser Jared Kushner discussed his Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday، and the two also discussed increasing U.S.-Turkish cooperation and ways to boost economic conditions in the region, Reuters reported.

Kushner، who has responsibility for Washington’s Israel-Palestinian policy، has said the peace plan will address final-status issues of the Israel-Palestinian conflict، including establishing borders.

The White House said the meeting with Erdogan included Kushner، Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and U.S. Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook.

“They discussed increasing cooperation between the United States and Turkey، and the Trump administration’s efforts to facilitate peace between the Israelis and Palestinians،” the White House said. “Additionally، they discussed ways to improve the condition of the entire region through economic investment.”

Erdogan has been one of the most vocal critics of U.S. President Donald Trump’s support for Israel.

Last year he said the United States had forfeited its role as mediator in the Middle East by moving its Israel embassy to Jerusalem and recognizing the city as Israel’s capital.

“The United States has chosen to be part of the problem rather than the solution،” the Turkish president said last May، days before he hosted a summit of Muslim leaders which threatened economic measures against countries which followed the United States in moving their embassies to Jerusalem.
