‘Israel and UAE hold secret meeting in White House’ allegation
It was stated in the news that the son-in-law and Chief Advisor of the President of the USA, Donald Kumpner, who was the target of criticism with the so-called Middle East peace plan, has an important role in holding this meeting.
Allegedly, the meeting was held by the US White House National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien, O’Brien’s Deputy Victoria Coates and the US Special Representative to Iran Brian Hook, and Israel by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s National Security Advisor Meir Ben Shabbat. The UAE was also represented by Yusuf Otaiba, the country’s Ambassador to Washington.
“The United States will not give information or make a statement about private diplomatic negotiations, while the United States welcomes the expansion of the relationship between its critical allies and partners,” the senior White House official said.
