What are Kushner’s goals in his trip to Qatar and Saudi Arabia?
ISWNews Analysis Group: Jared Kushner, senior advisor to the US president, will meet with Qatari and Saudi officials during a visit to the Persian Gulf.
According to Qatari news sources, Kushner arrived in Doha on December 2 and met with the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, to discuss regional issues and developments. After Qatar, Kushner is said to be traveling to the Saudi city of Neom to meet with Mohammed bin Salman.
Given the US’s past plans in the West Asian region, as well as the imminent end of the Trump administration, this trip seems to pursue three goals: 1- Resolving the disputes between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, 2- Normalizing relations with the Zionist regime, 3- Establishing coordination between the countries of the Persian Gulf to confront Iran.
