Netanyahu, three Trump envoys discuss restarting peace talks

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met Wednesday afternoon in Jerusalem with Jared Kushner, son-in-law and senior adviser of US President Donald Trump; Jason Greenblatt, Trump's special envoy to the Middle East; and David Friedman, the US ambassador to Israel, to discuss restarting peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. An Israeli official was quoted as saying that contacts among the parties are at an early stage so the resumption is not expected to take place any earlier than September. 
The prime minister said while greeting Kushner that the meeting was "an opportunity to pursue our common goals of security, prosperity and peace". He added that Trump had left "an indelible impression on the people of Israel" when he visited the country in May.
