New York [U.S.]: White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, went to Iraq this weekend and is likely to be back in the United States early this week.
This is his first visit to Iraq since assuming a portfolio of foreign affairs in the Trump Government.
Kushner was invited by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Joseph Dunford, and is traveling with him, sources told CNN.
However, it is still not clear as to what is on his itinerary.
Meanwhile, Kushner is expected to have a major role in the meetings later this week between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Not only is Kushner married to the President’s daughter Ivanka, but he is also one of his most influential advisers.
After taking the office on January 20th, Trump swore on planning out a new strategy to defeat the Islamic State that seized major portions of Iraq and Syria in 2014. (ANI)
