Israeli officials held high-level meetings with their counterparts from Europe, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates Tuesday; mapping out a framework for possible peace negotiations regarding Gaza and the West Bank.

The summit -hosted by the President’s son-in-law Jared Kushner- was held at the White House this week; making history during an “unprecedented moment” to clear a pathway for dialogue between Israeli and Arab politicians.

According to the Jerusalem Post, this is the first time Israeli officials held “publicly recognized” meetings with leaders from those states. Also in attendance were representatives from Canada, Europe, Egypt, and Jordan.

Members of the Palestinian Authority were not present.

“We regret that the Palestinian Authority is not here with us today,” said a US representative at the conference. “This is not about politics. This is about the health, safety and happiness of the people of Gaza, and of all Palestinians, Israelis and Egyptians.”

“As you know, we are here today to consider ideas on how to address the humanitarian challenges in Gaza – a topic that has long been at the forefront of all of our minds,” he added. “It has certainly been on mine.”
