The U.K. is organizing a meeting with several other countries, to discuss the Trump administration’s plan for peace in the Middle East.

The meeting called by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, will reportedly center on plans spearheaded by President Trump’s Adviser, Jared Kushner and Special Envoy Jason Greenblatt.

The discussions are expected to review details of President trump’s peace plan to lessen tensions between Palestine and Israel.

The move comes after Johnson pitched the idea to Kushner during his visit to DC last month.

Though Kushner agreed to the July meeting, he said it’s ultimately up to President Trump, who has the final say on the plan.

Meanwhile, Senior White House officials met with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley to also discuss the trump administration’s efforts to promote peace in the Middle East.

According to a White House statement Friday, Kushner and Greenblatt had productive talks with UN officials, as part of their mission to reach a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

This comes after the UN passed a resolution condemning Israel for recent violence on the Gaza border, despite objections by the U.S.

Kushner and Greenblatt are set to travel across the Middle East next week with stops including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Israel.
