US International Negotiations Envoy Greenblatt Arrives in Israel Ahead of Pence Visit

(JNS) President Donald Trump’s international negotiations representative, Jason Greenblatt, is arriving in Israel on Wednesday for meetings with representatives of the European Union, Russia and the United Nations, who together with the U.S. form the Middle East Quartet, a self-appointed group of international entities striving to advance an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

The visit comes amid enhanced U.S. support for Israeli political positions on Jerusalem, settlement construction and questioning the necessity for the rapid implementation of a two-state solution.

Greenblatt is not expected to meet with Palestinian officials, who have announced their intentions to boycott any efforts initiated by the U.S. since Trump’s Jerusalem announcement. He is expected to stay in Israel through Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to the Jewish state, scheduled for Jan. 22-23.
