The White House does not plan to invite Israeli government officials to a Bahrain conference devoted to gaining support for a Palestinian economic revitalization plan in order to keep the event apolitical, a senior administration official said on Monday.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Palestinian business representatives are expected to attend the event in Manama later this month, but not Palestinian government officials, who have boycotted a peace initiative led by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner.

“We’re inviting the Israeli business people and Palestinian business people. We’d like the make it as apolitical as possible,” the official said.
