Qatar’s Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has met with Jared Kushner, senior adviser and son-in-law of US President Donald Trump. At a meeting in Doha on Wednesday (2 September), the Emir of Qatar said that his country wanted a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with East Jerusalem being its capital. Qatar-based Al Jazeera reports.
The United Arab Emirates, the third state after Egypt in 1969 and Jordan in 1994, announced on 13 August the signing of an American-Brocade Agreement to normalize relations with Israel. American and Israeli officials expect many more countries in the region to sign such agreements. That’s why White House adviser Jared Kushner is visiting the Middle East.
In a meeting with Jared Kushner on Wednesday, Amir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar said that his country was committed to the 2002 Arab peace process. In exchange for normalizing relations with Israel, the proposal called for the removal of Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem after the 1967 Middle East War and the establishment of a Palestinian state there. However, Israel has not taken any initiative to implement this proposal.
