US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner has had a very brief and stormy meeting with Kuwait Ambassador to the United States, Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al Sabah, during which he conveyed the US administration’s annoyance with Kuwait’s position at the United Nations Security Council on the crisis in the occupied Palestinian territories, Al-Rai newspaper reported informed US sources as saying.
The newspaper reported yesterday that Kushner reproached Sheikh Salem saying:
According to the source, Kushner revealed during his meeting with the Kuwaiti ambassador that he was working with Saudi Arabia and Egypt on a joint Arab-American statement on the situation in Gaza, adding that he did not know that Kuwait holds a different opinion to the Arab consensus, although it claims to represent the Arab bloc at the UN Security Council.
Last week Kuwait submitted a draft resolution at the UNSC demanding an international mission be set up to protect Palestinian civilians. The US used its power of veto to quash the plan.
