His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani met with Senior Adviser to the President of the United States Jared Kushner and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt at Al Bahr Palace on Thursday evening.

During the meeting, they reviewed the close friendship and co-operation between Qatar and the US in various fields.

A number of issues of common interest were also discussed, including the Middle East peace process and the humanitarian and living conditions in the Gaza Strip.

Reuters adds from Washington: Earlier in the day Kushner met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo, in a series of meetings he has held in the Middle East over a much-anticipated US plan for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, and Greenblatt also discussed with the Egyptian president increasing co-operation between Washington and Cairo and the need to facilitate humanitarian relief to Gaza, a White House statement said.

In Qatar, Kushner and Greenblatt also discussed with His Highness the Amir increasing co-operation between the two countries and humanitarian relief in Gaza, a separate White House statement said.

This week, Kushner and Greenblatt have also met with leaders of Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Kushner is charged with crafting the Trump administration's plan for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, and the White House has said his proposal will be released soon.
