"I'm very pleased to see you again Jared, and the delegation. We have a lot of things to talk about: how to advance peace, stability and security in the region. … I think all of them are in our reach," Netanyahu told Kushner. "I'm happy to see you and the effort you're leading on behalf of the president.
