| Updated Aug 23, 2017 at 4:00pm
White House adviser Jared Kushner is leading a delegation to the Middle East on behalf of US President Donald Trump to discuss the possibility of resuming the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Kushner, who is also Trump's son-in-law, is expected to hold separate meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday.
The talks are aimed at helping forge a path to substantive peace negotiations, but no major breakthrough is expected.
