U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner will travel this week to meet with both Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia and Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad al-Than.
The Qatari news channel al-Jazeera, which bases its information on the US media, reports on the matter.
Kushner and bin Salman are reportedly scheduled to meet in Saudi Arabia on the Red Sea town of Neom.
Kushner, Emir of Qatar, is scheduled to meet in Qatar.
There are known to be many reasons for Kushner's journey.
One of them is linked to the ceasefire between Saudi Arabia and its allies and Qatar, according to al-Jazeera.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt severed diplomatic relations with Qatar in 2017, and also put Qatar on a blockade by land, sea, and air.
The reason was that the countries stated that Qatar supported terrorism and published a list of requirements in paragraph 13.
Underlying this is Qatar’s warm relations with Iran, which in turn has cool distances to many Gulf countries.
Qatar has denied the allegations and accused it of violating its sovereignty.
Netanyahu is said to have met Pompeo and bin Salman last week
The assassination of Iranian nuclear researcher Mohsen Fakhrizadeh last Friday has raised tensions in the Gulf region.
Iranian President Hassan Ruhani has accused Israel of murder.
According to news agency AFP, Ruhani believes Israel acted as a U.S. mercenary in the murder.
Last Monday, Israeli media reported that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and bin Salman met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Neom in Saudi Arabia.
The meeting has not been officially confirmed.
In any case, President Trump and his administration have aimed for a peace massage in the Middle East.
Midwives by Trump and Kushner, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan have established diplomatic relations with Israel.
Saudi Arabia’s official position has been that it will not enter into relations with Israel until the Palestinian question is resolved.
Saudi Arabia and Israel fear incoming U.S. President Joe Biden intends to restore Iran’s nuclear deal, which the U.S. withdrew under Trump.
The murder of Fakhrizadeh has again been thought to complicate Biden’s intentions.
