The US president’s son-in-law and White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner has opened a conference in Bahrain on Palestinian economic development, part of a wider initiative to end decades of conflict.
He’s proposing a $50bn formula for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Palestinian leaders, though, have already rejected the plan, and are boycotting the gathering.
The contentious plan ignores the international community’s long-held solutions to the conflict.
